    Watched a documentary type thing on Netflix last night - secrets of British castles - the two from Wales Cardiff and Caernarfon castle were the ones I obviously picked.

    Hugh le Despenser was a bit of a scoundrel, love how he was killed though.

    Despenser was dragged naked through the streets, for the crowd's mistreatment. He was made a spectacle, which included writing on his body biblical verses against the capital sins he was accused of. Then he was hanged as a mere commoner, yet released before full asphyxiation could happen.

    In Froissart's account of his execution, Despenser was then tied firmly to a ladder and his genitals sliced off and burned while he was still conscious. His entrails were slowly pulled out; finally, his heart was cut out and thrown into a fire. Froissart (or rather Jean le Bel's chronicle, on which he relied) is the only source to mention castration; other contemporary accounts have Despenser hanged, drawn and quartered, which usually did not involve castration.[16]

    Despenser's body was beheaded and cut into four pieces. His head was mounted on the gates of London.

    Sounds interesting that, cheers.

    If he was a wrongun, especially to us Welsh then perhaps it's time to remove the Despenser Street name.

    Quite frankly, anyone who goes through the streets naked must be a wrong un.

    I think you'll like them, especially as the Caernarfon one includes bits about Ap Llewellyn

    I'm not entirely sure but he was an evil man, he repeatedly broke Lady Berets arms and legs until she went insane

    Yes very common Welsh name at the time Hugh Le Despenser. You couldn't flick through a phone book back then without avoiding them.

    The le Despenser bit is a bit of a giveaway to be fair.

    He was from the line of marauding French invaders who buttfucked King Harold and his Saxon / Viking supporters.

    It's an interesting watch. The planets move around the sun at their proper speed - Saturn takes 29 years!

    I saw Tom Jones at Hampton Court Palace about 20 years ago. Does that count?
