Note: !Edward I, King of England, succeeded to the throne in 1272, upon the death of his father, Henry III, King of England. Edward I, was one of England's most valiant Warriors, worthy of a soldiers admiration. In Edward's time, as in his father King Henry's, the troublesome Welsh chieftain was Llewellyn Ap Gruffyd. Edward defeated him in battle, cut off his head, and sent it back to be stuck on a high pole in London. Llewellyn's brother David was also eliminated. He was captured, tried, hanged, drawn, and quartered, his trophy-head going to London. At this time being drawn and quartered was a new thing in the administration of justice. It is no wonder the English take pride in Edward I, as a soldier King. He was a great one indeed, a tremendous strategist and a daring aggressor, brave as a lion. Ten thousand Scots were killed at Falkirk and the army was in precipitous flight. The only flaw was that Wallace escaped and it was six years before he was tried, hanged, drawn and quartered, according to what was custom by this time, and his head stuck up on a pole. Edward I, loved his family and smote his enemies, and he left England better, much better than he had found it,
