What went wrong for De Montfort? Lost magnate support. His sons were unpopular. The Lord Edward escaped - led to defeat at Evesham.

No likeness of De Montfort survives. His driving force personal grievances.

Who elected the knights ? Sheriffs a key role along with gentry in county court.

After 1265 knights were elected. This pattern repeated by every medieval king.

1268/70 parliaments featured knights at most of them. Sometimes elected. Key role at Westminster and in local communities.

Support for De Montfort from magnates fell away in 1265 parliament. He looked for support from elsewhere.

Knights a more prominent role in 1265 parliament. De Montfort paid their expenses.
