Cousin to King John, and one of his closest allies, William served the King faithfully in many capacities. He was present at the King’s coronation in 1199, and a couple of years later we find him as Lieutenant of Gascony. When the French seized Normandy in 1204, he lost his continental holdings, but was apparently generously recompensed by John.
His star continued to rise, seeing him appointed as Warden of the Cinque Ports, then later the Welsh Marches. During the unrest in 1212, he was given custodianship of the northern shires.

He was one of the few nobles that sided with the king during The Baron’s War fighting at his side to its conclusion. William is also remembered for encouraging the king to sign the Magna Carta. He remained a staunch supporter of the crown until his death in 1240 at the ripe age of 73.

If you need glue for your models we also sell a great variety of excellent adhesives in our Glue, Paints and Tools section.
