Character description

Simon de Montfort (1208-1265), 6th Earl of Leicester. He is most noteworthy for leading a rebellion against King Henry III (Second Barons' War). This came close to success, but Henry's son, the future Edward I, managed to defeat de Montfort, who died at the Battle of Evesham in 1265.
