  • Notes 
    • In 1253 he was invested by the Pope in the Kingdom of Sicily and Apulia, at about this time he was also made Earl of Chester. These were of little value as the real King of Sicily was still living and the Earldom of Chester was transfered to his elder brother Edward. He soon obtained, however, both possessions and dignities, for upon the forfeiture of Simon de Montfort by the King of the Earldom of Leicester and also the honour of the Stewardship of
      England and the lands of Nicolas de Segrave.
      26 Oct 1265: 1st Earl of Lancaster & High Steward of England.
      26 Oct 1265: His father Henry III invested him with earldom of Leicester.
      REF: Sharon Kay Penman, "The Reckoning": Split with his brother Edward over the latter's decision, after he took Nazareth (1271-1272), to allow his men to kill the Arab townsfolk, in reprisal for the Arabs' massacre of Christians at Jaffa & Antioch.
      M.P. 1276.
