Toledo, Spain

in the development of León and Castile and the first major milestone in the ''Reconquista''. Christian Mozarabs from Al-Andalus had come north to populate the deserted frontier (marches) lands, and the traditional view of Spanish history has been that they brought with them the remains of Visigothic and Classical culture, and a new ideology of ''Reconquista'', a crusade against the Moors. Modern historians see the fall of Toledo as marking a basic change in relations with the Moorish south, turning from the simple extortion of annual tribute to outright territorial expansion. Alfonso VI was drawn into local politics by strife within Toledo and inherited the political alliances of the city-state. He found himself faced with problems unfamiliar to him, such as appointing and dealing with a Catholic bishop in Toledo and the settling of garrisons in the small Muslim strongholds, the ''taifas'', which were dependent on Toledo and which often bought the king's favour with gold from their trade with Al-Andalus and the Maghreb. Alfonso VI thus found his role as a Catholic king redefined as he governed large cities with sophisticated urban, Muslim subjects and growing Christian populations. ) is a stone fortification located in the highest part of Toledo, Spain. Once used as a Roman palace in the 3rd century, it was restored under Charles I (Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor) and Philip II of Spain in the 1540's.

Guillaume's nephew and namesake, Guillaume III de Croÿ (William de Croÿ (archbishop)) (1498-1521), was educated in Louvain (Leuven) with Juan Luís Vives, a great philosopher of the time. As it appeared unlikely that he would succeed to the lands of his grandfather, Philippe I, he was destined to the church. Family interests ensured his rapid promotion: he was elected Bishop of Cambrai at the age of 17. Within a year, Charles V (Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor) bestowed upon his young Burgundian friend the archbishopric of Toledo (Toledo, Spain), making him a cardinal and Primate of Spain. This unprecedented move brought Spain to the brink of a civil war. Guillaume accompanied his uncle and Charles to Worms, where on January 6 he died aged 22, following a fall from his horse. His tomb is in the Celestin monastery of Louvain, founded by his father.

Normandy

remained the language of the English upper classes for centuries, and the number of Latinate words in English increased immensely through borrowing during this Middle English (Middle English language) period. More recently, during the Modern English period, the revival of interest in classical culture during the Renaissance led to a great deal of conscious adaptation of words from Classical Latin authors into English. A few more military disasters, royalist (House of Bourbon) insurrections in the south, Chouan (Chouannerie) disturbances in a dozen departments of the western part of France, mainly in Brittany (Brittany (administrative region)), Maine and eventually Normandy, ''Orléanist'' intrigues, and the end was certain. In order to soothe the populace and protect the frontier, more than the French Revolution's usual terrorist (terrorism) measures (such as forced taxation or the law of hostages) was necessary. The new Directory government, led by Sieyès , decided that the necessary revision of the constitution would require "a head" (his own) and "a sword" (a general to back him). Jean Victor Moreau being unattainable as his sword, Sieyès favoured Barthélemy Catherine Joubert ; but, when Joubert was killed at the Battle of Novi (15 August 1799), he turned to General Napoleon Bonaparte . Later career Later in 1944, Beveridge, who had recently joined the Liberal Party (Liberal Party (UK)), was elected to the House of Commons (British House of Commons) in a by-election (Berwick-upon-Tweed by-election, 1944) to succeed George Charles Grey, who had died on the battlefield in Normandy, France, on the first day of Operation Bluecoat on 30 July 1944. Beveridge briefly served as Member of Parliament (Member of Parliament#United_Kingdom) (MP) for the constituency of Berwick-upon-Tweed (Berwick-upon-Tweed (UK Parliament constituency)) until the 1945 general election (United Kingdom general election, 1945). The earlier site was located, at least in part, in what is now the Church Street area of Reigate, close to the church. Part of the site was excavated in the 1990s. It was shown that the settlement moved during the earlier part of the 12th century when the present new town was formed. William I (William I of England) granted the land around Reigate to one of his supporters, William de Warenne (William de Warenne, 1st Earl of Surrey), who was created Earl of Surrey in 1088. It is believed that his son, William de Warenne, 2nd Earl of Surrey, ordered that Reigate Castle be built, although the de Warennes had their southern base in Lewes, Sussex, as well as castles in Yorkshire and Normandy. Around 1150 the Earl de Warenne set out a new town below the castle. This town forms the basis of modern-day Reigate. Little is known of the Castle which has never been excavated on any great scale. Local legend says prior to the signing of the Magna Carta, the rebellious barons met to hammer out the details of the document in the extensive Old Reigate: A Pictorial History caves beneath the castle. The story however has no truth to it. The castle later fell into decay and the remains demolished at the end of the 17th century, though the grounds remain as a public garden, and the caves are occasionally opened for tours.
