  1. William became known as "the Marshal", although by his time much of the function was delegated to more specialised representatives (as happened with other functions in the King's household). Because he was an Earl, and also known as the Marshal, the term " Earl Marshal " was commonly used and this later became an established hereditary title in the English Peerage.

    William Marshal was born c. 1146 CE and he experienced his very first misadventure aged just six when his father's castle at Newbury was attacked by an army of King Stephen's (r. 1135-1154 CE). John Marshal was forced to give up his young son William as a hostage while the attack was suspended in order for the terms of a surrender to be settled. However, John had other ideas and used the respite to restock his castle with provisions. This seemed a risky strategy considering his son was in the hands of his enemies but when threatened with the execution of William his father glibly replied 'I have a hammer and an anvil on which I can forge better sons than he!' (Phillips, 104). Fortunately for William, he escaped both death and his family when Stephen decided not to end his young life by hanging him as threatened (or catapulted over the castle walls as some had proposed) and instead made him a royal ward. This was a fortuitous outcome for everybody since William, being the younger of...

    William the young knight was immediately called into action in 1166 CE when he was dispatched to fight in the war between Henry II of England (r. 1154-1189 CE) and the counts of Boulogne, Flanders and Ponthieu. Stationed at the castle of Neufchâtel-en-Bray in Normandy, William showed promise and bravery but after a skirmish where he lost his horse, he was warned by William de Tancarville not to be stupidly rash in warfare. As a punishment, the knight was not given a replacement horse and he found himself in something of a predicament as he had no funds to acquire one himself. Selling his clothes to buy a new horse, William looked for better fortune in that other alternative to glory besides warfare: the medieval tournament. Entering the tournament of Le Mans in France in 1167 CE, the young knight exceeded all expectations in the mêlée, a sort of mock cavalry battle where knights had to capture each other for a ransom agreed on before the match. William did so well he now owned four...

    In 1168 CE William was back in real warfare but it went as badly as his first experience. Fighting in Poitou in western France with the army of his uncle the Earl of Salisbury, William was injured and captured by the forces of Guy de Lusignan. Fortunately, the habit of asking for ransoms was not exclusive to tournaments and William could be freed at the right price. Eleanor of Aquitaine, consort of Henry II, came up with the cash and William was freed. Recognising William as a great talent not to be wasted, Eleanor employed the knight as tutor-in-arms to her son Henry the Young King, then aged 15. In between his court duties, William continued where he left off at tournaments and carried on winning vast sums of money. He was now rich enough to employ his own entourage of knights. Then, in 1182 CE, the wheel of fortune turned again, although it was William who nudged it. Accused of conducting an affair with Henry the Young King's wife, Margaret of France or, at the very least, commit...

    By 1186 CE William was back at court from his travels and serving King Henry II again, notably in the campaigns of 1188-9 CE against Philip IIof France (r. 1180-1223 CE), who had allied himself to the English king's two rebellious sons, John and Richard (the future Richard I Lionheart). In one battle or its aftermath, William came face to face with Richard and, when the prince was at his mercy, he spared his life, killing only his horse instead. The great knight was now adding chivalry (if not a love of animals) to his already formidable martial reputation. When Henry II died in 1189 CE Richard became king and he did not forget William's generosity. As promised by the old monarch, the knight was first given a bride, the 17-year old Isabel de Clare, daughter of the immensely rich 2nd Earl of Pembroke and, as she was the heiress, it gave William prestige, wealth and castles. Amongst the castles were Pembroke and Chepstow, both in Wales. William is credited with converting the former f...

    Having served four English monarchs and risen to the very top of the kingdom, the great knight's time was nearly up. There was one last hurrah at the battle of Lincoln in 1217 CE when, aged 70, he led the English army and won against the still-disgruntled English barons and their French ally, the future King Louis VIII of France (r. 1223-1226 CE). Just before the battle and leading his army in person, William gave a rousing speech to his frontline troops, declaring that the enemy had so positioned their forces that he would win the day because he could attack with all his army at a single section of the opposition; and so it turned out. William died two years later on 14th May 1219 CE and, loyal to those around him, as ever, he refused to permit the sale of his robes and furs to pay for alms, preferring instead they be given to his household knights. Just as William had promised himself when in the Holy Lands years before, he was invested as a Knight Templar and interred in TempleCh...

  6. Yet William Marshal – or William the Marshal – was one of the greatest men ever to have lived and arguably the greatest ever Englishman. Although inexplicably omitted from schoolroom history he has a dozen claims to fame. He unhorsed Richard, the future King Richard I, the Lionheart, in battle and spared his life.
