Queen Philippa's New Year gift to her husband King Edward III in 1333 was a silver cup, ewer, and basin.     
The ewer was decorated with figures of Julius Caesar, Charlemagne, King Arthur, and Lancelot.

Queen Margaret of Anjou, consort of King Henry VI, tried to introduce silk weaving into England. She brought in foreign weavers. Margaret became the patron of the Sisterhood of Silk Women, a guild based in Spitalfields, London.

King Henry II embarked on a campaign of destroying what were known as adulterine castles. These castles were the fortresses built throughout the countryside without royal consent by barons taking advantage of a weal king.

King Richard I regarded his realm as little more than a source of revenue for his crusades. 'I would have sold London itself if I could have found a rich enough buyer,' he said.

King John pursued barons who remained loyal to him. He forced some barons to become royal debtors by imposing huge sums in return for new titles. Geoffrey de Mandeville was obliged to offer 20,000 marks for the earldom of Gloucester.

I always feel sorry for the animals gifted to that menagerie, who in those days who had no chance of surviving in England's way colder climate. Leopards, crocodiles, elephants all got there and sadly died. They would have been stressed physically by the journey before arriving, as well.

When Edward I was the monarch, under the Statute of Rhuddlan of March 1284, English officials were brought in to govern the new English style shires that were to replace the existing Welsh kingdoms in Wales.

Before his coronation, King Edward II traveled to France to retrieve his bride Isabella . He had Piers Gaveston serve as regent. Could Parliament have prevented Gaveston from being the regent?

In 1351 King Edward III issued the Statute of Labourers, which capped escalating wages and limited worker migration.   
It was during the reign of King Edward III that Parliament was first split into two chambers.
