The number of knights summoned for each county was greater than in 1254 or 1261 and would have resulted in 140 in total if they all went
The knights were to discuss 'our business and the business of our realm' at a #parliament due to meet in London on 22 June 1264
On 4 June 1264 Keepers of the Peace in every county were told to supervise the election of 4 knights from each shire.

De Montfort's response to his difficulties was to summon a #parliament, an initiative which had been stipulated in the Mise of Lewes.
De Montfort was also hampered by lack of money, public disorder and lack of progess with the settlement negotiated after lewes.
Despite appearances to the contrary De Montfort's position was not totally secure and he faced the threat of invasion from France
In late May 1264 Henry III accompanied De Montfort to London where the latter was able to tighten his grip on the levers of power
After the battle of Lewes both Henry III's son Edward and Henry of Almain were held by De Montfort as hostages
The Song of Lewes portrayed De Montfort's victory as the triumph of the common good over the will of the King
