This somewhat important character is dead for the majority of the series, but I liked him for his brief time. He’s the father of Gilthunder.
He was once the Holy Knight Grandmaster. But ten years before the series started, he was murdered by Hendrickson and Dreyfus under the control of the demon Fraudrin. And the Seven Deadly Sins were framed for it.
When one of the Ten Commandments brings back the dead with regrets, he returns in disguise.
With Elizabeth and Hawk being the first to know. Despite being one of the strongest humans in Britannia, he’s pretty goofy.
I liked how he showed Elizabeth the past and protected her when demons came close.
He manages to fight Fraudrin and free his brother Dreyfus with the last of his life force. I found it sad that his son Gilthunder never got to see him really before that happened.
When Mary, Queen of Scots was allegedly found to have worked with conspirators to commit regicide against Elizabeth I of England, it left the English queen in a bit of a predicament. Any lesser ranked person would be executed without a second thought, but Elizabeth feared the backlash. While Elizabeth ordered her death anyway, her ultimate concern was that Mary’s son King James VI of Scotland (who was ironically Elizabeth’s heir and eventually successor) would ally with a foreign power against England in revenge.
King Edward VII of Great Britain was originally known as Prince Albert Edward. It seems his mother originally intended him to rule one day as King Albert I, but he felt that it would diminish the name of his father Prince Albert and that his father’s name “should stand alone”.
The Stone of Scone is a block of red sandstone used in the coronation of Scottish monarchs. King Edward I of England took it as a spoil of war and used it to claim his right as “Lord Paramount” of Scotland which was a claim that he was rightfully above Scotland’s king.
The founder of the American Girl Scouts was Juliette Gordon Low. She had been a supporter of the early Scouting movement and went to Scotland and helped a group known as the Girl Guides. When she returned to America, she quickly founded The Girl Scouts of the USA. She remained active in the group until her death in 1927.
