Henry the Lion

Henry the Lion (German: Heinrich der Löwe; 1129/1131 – 6 August 1195) was a member of the Welf dynasty and Duke of Saxony, as Henry III, from 1142, and Duke of Bavaria, as Henry XII, from 1156, the duchies of which he held until 1180.

He was one of the most powerful German princes of his time, until the rival Hohenstaufen dynasty succeeded in isolating him and eventually deprived him of his duchies of Bavaria and Saxony during the reign of his cousin Frederick I Barbarossa and of Frederick's son and successor Henry VI.

At the height of his reign, Henry ruled over a vast territory stretching from the coast of the North and Baltic Seas to the Alps, and from Westphalia to Pomerania.

Hugh de Puiset

Hugh de Puiset (c. 1125 – 3 March 1195) was a medieval Bishop of Durham and Chief Justiciar of England under King Richard I. He was the nephew of King Stephen of England and Henry of Blois, who both assisted Hugh's ecclesiastical career. He held the office of treasurer of York for a number of years, which led him into conflict with Henry Murdac, Archbishop of York. In 1153, Hugh was elected bishop of Durham despite the opposition of Murdac.

Hugh was not involved in the controversy between King Henry II and Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury. The king did suspect Hugh of supporting Henry's heir, Henry the Young King, when the prince rebelled and Hugh was also suspected of aiding the King of Scots, William I, during an invasion of Northern England in 1174. After the accession of Henry's second son Richard as king, Hugh bought the office of Sheriff of Northumberland, as well as the earldom of Northumbria. He also acquired the office of Justiciar, which he was supposed to share with William de Mandeville, but with Mandeville's death Hugh shared the office with William Longchamp. Longchamp had managed to secure the office for himself by the middle of 1190.

As a bishop, Hugh was noted as a builder, including a stone bridge in the city of Durham and the Galilee Chapel in Durham Cathedral. His administration of the episcopal lands included an inquest into the exact holdings of the bishopric. As a patron, Hugh sponsored the career of the medieval chronicler Roger of Hoveden. Hugh had a long-term mistress, by whom he had at least two sons, and possibly two more.

United Nations Security Council Resolution 1195

United Nations Security Council resolution 1195, adopted unanimously on 15 September 1998, after reaffirming Resolution 696 (1991) and all subsequent resolutions on Angola, the Council extended the mandate of the United Nations Observer Mission in Angola (MONUA) for a month until 15 October 1998.The Security Council stated that the current impasse in the peace process was due to the failure of UNITA to comply with its obligations under the Acordos de Paz, Lusaka Protocol and relevant Security Council resolutions, and demanded that it immediately comply, particularly with regard to the demilitarisation of its forces and extension of state authority throughout the country. Furthermore, it demanded that UNITA leave areas it had occupied through military means and transform itself into a political party. The Government of Angola was urged to reconsider its decision to suspend members of UNITA from the Government of Unity and National Reconciliation (GURN).

Member States were called upon to fully implement restrictions against UNITA imposed in resolutions 864 (1993), 1127 (1997) and 1173 (1998). Finally, the resolution endorsed the decision of the Secretary-General Kofi Annan to instruct MONUA to adjust its deployment on the ground in order to ensure the safety and security of MONUA personnel.
