6th Earl of Leicester
a/k/a
Simon the Righteous

He is remembered for having called together a parliament including a House of Commons—although its influence on modern political structures is perhaps exaggerated. His attempts to curb royal power brought him in constant conflict with the crown, and, ultimately, were his undoing. He was killed at the battle of Evesham.

Long popularly revered as a martyr and a saint, he was known as "Simon the Righteous".  -30-
