Andronikos II Palaiologos

Andronikos II Palaiologos (Medieval Greek: Ἀνδρόνικος Β′ Παλαιολόγος; 25 March 1259 – 13 February 1332), usually Latinized as Andronicus II Palaeologus, reigned as Byzantine Emperor from 1282 to 1328. Andronikos' reign was marked by the beginning of the decline of the Byzantine Empire. During his reign, the Turks conquered most of the Western Anatolian territories of the Empire and, during the last years of his reign, he also had to fight his grandson Andronikos in the First Palaiologan Civil War. The civil war ended in Andronikos II's forced abdication in 1328 after which he retired to a monastery.

Baron Darcy de Knayth

Baron Darcy de Knayth is a title in the Peerage of England. It was created in 1332 for John Darcy (or D'Arcy) with remainder to his heirs general, allowing daughters to inherit.At the death of the sixth baron, the barony fell into abeyance between his two daughters, which the Sovereign terminated in 1641 in favour of Conyers Darcy, as he was also an heir of the abeyant Barony Darcy de Darcy (created 1509). He also successfully petitioned for the termination of the abeyance of the Barony of Conyers in his favour, and both baronies were considered new creations, with remainder to his heirs male. He was called to parliament as Baron Darcy and Conyers.His son, also named Conyers Darcy, was granted the title of Earl of Holderness. The two titles remained united until the death of the fourth earl, when the earldom became extinct, while the baronies were claimed by his daughter, Lady Amelia. Lady Amelia was briefly married to the future fifth Duke of Leeds, and the sixth and seventh Dukes held the baronies de jure.At the death of the seventh Duke of Leeds in 1859, the two baronies separated from the dukedom. Sackville Lane-Fox, eldest son of the 7th Duke of Leeds' eldest daughter, claimed the baronies de jure , which again became abeyant upon his death in 1888. The abeyance for the Barony of Conyers was terminated in 1892 in favour of Lane-Fox's eldest daughter Marcia Pelham, Countess of Yarborough. On 29 September 1903, the abeyance of the Barony of Darcy de Knayth was terminated in favour of Lane-Fox's younger daughter, Violet Herbert, Countess of Powis. At the same time, the 1641 ruling, considering the titles new creations only for the heirs male of Conyers Darcy, was reversed, and the it was ruled that both baronies were to be held in remainder for heirs general.

The Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos had Isaias confined to the monastery section of the Magnaura school in Constantinople in 1327, possibly due to the Patriarch's support for the emperor's grandson, Andronikos III Palaiologos during the civil war of 1321–1328. Upon the overthrow of Andronikos II by his grandson on 23/14 May 1328, a delegation was sent to the monastery to retrieve Isaias. On his way back to the palace, Isaias was escorted not by the usual ecclesiastics, but by a troupe of musicians, dancing girls and comedians, one of whom had him so helpless with laughter that he almost fell off his horse.

Wars of Scottish Independence

The Wars of Scottish Independence were a series of military campaigns fought between the Kingdom of Scotland and the Kingdom of England in the late 13th and early 14th centuries.

The First War (1296–1328) began with the English invasion of Scotland in 1296, and ended with the signing of the Treaty of Edinburgh-Northampton in 1328. The Second War (1332–1357) began with the English-supported invasion by Edward Balliol and the 'Disinherited' in 1332, and ended in 1357 with the signing of the Treaty of Berwick. The wars were part of a great crisis for Scotland and the period became one of the most defining times in its history. At the end of both wars, Scotland retained its status as an independent state. The wars were important for other reasons, such as the emergence of the longbow as a key weapon in medieval warfare.
