  1. The Legend of the ‘Leg-End’ - the Knights of the Garter The Triskelion and the Similarities Between Sicily and the Isle of Man Legend of the Leg End - The Isle of Man and the Sicilian Triskelions by Prince Arthur, on Flickr Past Knights of the Order of the Garter included the following Kings and Lords of the Isle of Man: William Montagu, 2nd Earl of Salisbury, King of Mann, KG #6 (apptd 1348) Williem le Scrope, 1st Earl of Wiltshire, King of Mann, KG #85 (apptd 1395) Henry Percy, 1st Earl of Northumberland, King of Mann, KG #43 (apptd 1366) John Stanley, King of Mann, KG #109 (apptd 1405) Thomas Stanley, 1st Baron Stanley, King of Mann, KG #174 (apptd 1457) Thomas Stanley, 1st Earl of Derby, King of Mann, KG #224 (apptd 1483) Edward Stanley, 3rd Earl of Derby, Lord of Mann, KG #319 (apptd 1547) Henry Stanley, 4th Earl of Derby, Lord of Mann, KG #359 (apptd 1574) Henry Howard, 1st Earl of Northampton, Lord of Mann KG #400 (apptd 1605) Robert Cecil, 1st Earl of Salisbury, Lord of Mann, KG #401 (apptd 1606) William Stanley, 6th Earl of Derby, Lord of Mann, KG #391 (apptd 1601) James Stanley, 7th Earl of Derby, Lord of Mann, KG #452 (apptd 1650) By the passage of the Isle of Man Purchase Act 1765 the title of Lord of Mann was revested into the British Crown. It has therefore since been used in the Isle of Man to refer to the reigning British monarch (all Heads of the Order of the Knights of the Garter).

  7. The Scottish Jacobite Risings of 1745 Jacobite Rising 1745 Battle of Culloden Combatants by Prince Arthur, on Flickr Battle of Culloden, Scotland 1745 co-ordinated by the Knights of the Garter The Battle of Culloden was the final confrontation of the Jacobite rising of 1745. Jacobite Forces "Bonnie Prince Charlie" - Charles Edward Louis John Casimir Sylvester Severino Maria Stuart KG (1720 to 1788) Supported by i) Louis XV – King of France ii) James Francis Edward Stuart KG Prince Charles Edward Stuart (1720 – 1788) ("Bonnie Prince Charlie") was the son of Prince James Francis Edward Stuart (1688 – 1766) Knight of the Garter (“The Old Pretender”) Jacobite Rising 1745 Battle of Culloden Bonnie Prince Charlie by Prince Arthur, on Flickr The ‘New Pretender’ - Prince Charles Edward Stuart ("Bonnie Prince Charlie") wearing the Garter Star and Sash (Scottish National Gallery) Jacobite Rising 1715 James Francis Edward Stuart KG by Prince Arthur, on Flickr The ‘Old Pretender’ - Prince James Francis Edward Stuart wearing the Garter Star and Sash (National Portrait Gallery) Hanoverian Forces Forces loyal to Hanoverian King George II KG #515 (apptd 1706) were placed under the command of his son, Prince William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland KG #546 (1721 to 1765). Jacobite Rising 1745 Battle of Culloden Butcher Cumberland KG 546 by Prince Arthur, on Flickr Hanoverian Commander - William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland (KG #546 appointed 1730) – ‘Butcher Cumberland’ On 16 April 1746, the Jacobite forces of Prince Charles Edward Stuart (Knight of the Garter) were decisively defeated by Hanoverian forces commanded by William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland (KG #546 appointed 1730), on Drummossie Moor near Inverness in the Scottish Highlands. Between 1,500 and 2,000 Jacobites were killed or wounded in the brief battle. In contrast, only about 300 government soldiers were killed or wounded. Both sides of the battle were controlled by the Knights of the Garter. It was the last pitched battle fought on British soil. Given the false pretences for the Jacobite Risings which were carefully co-ordinated, controlled and stage managed by the Knights of the Garter, the nicknames for James Stuart – the ‘Old Pretender’ and Charles Stuart - the ‘Young Pretender’ couldn’t be more appropriate. Bonnie Prince Charlie would ultimately evade capture and leave the country aboard the French frigate L'Heureux, (‘The Happy’ in French) arriving in France in September. Charles spent the remainder of his life on the continent, except for one secret visit to London between the 5th and the 11th of September, 1750. James died in Rome on 1 January 1766 and was buried in the crypt of St. Peter's Basilica in present-day Vatican City. His burial is marked by the Monument to the Royal Stuarts. His claimed reign had lasted for 64 years, 3 months and 16 days, longer than any British monarch until Queen Elizabeth II's reign surpassed it on 23 May 2016. Charles died in Rome of a stroke on 31 January 1788, aged 67. He was first buried in Frascati Cathedral near Rome, where his brother Henry Benedict Stuart was bishop. At Henry's death in 1807, Charles's remains (except his heart) were moved to the crypt of St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican where they were laid to rest next to those of his brother and his father near the monument to the Royal Stuarts. His mother is also buried in St. Peter's Basilica. His heart remained in Frascati Cathedral, where it is contained in a small urn beneath the floor under a monument. (The tomb of James Francis Edward Stuart, Charles Edward Stuart and Henry Benedict Stuart resides in St. Peter's Basilica, the Vatican, Rome). The Scots Had Finally Been Defeated Where the Roman Empire and the Caesars had failed in defeating the brave, noble and staunchly independent Scottish Highland Clans, the Holy Roman Empire and the Knights of the Garter had achieved a monumental victory due to a military master-class in gamesmanship, warfare and subterfuge.

James was supported by: i) Louis XIV of France (his cousin). ii) John Erskine, 6th Earl of Mar KG (1675 to 1732). Knight of the Garter (appointment omitted from official records). Nicknamed ‘Bobbing John’ due to his tendency for switching sides… Jacobite Rising 1715 James Francis Edward Stuart KG by Prince Arthur, on Flickr James Francis Edward Stuart KG (1688 to 1766) Jacobite Rising 1715 John Erskine KG by Prince Arthur, on Flickr John Erskine, 6th Earl of Mar KG (1675 to 1732). Jacobite Rising 1715 John Campbell KG 517 by Prince Arthur, on Flickr John Campbell, 2nd Duke of Argyll KG #517 (1680 to 1743) Forces loyal to Hanoverian King George I KG #509 (apptd 1701) were placed under the command of John Campbell, 2nd Duke of Argyll KG #517 (apptd 1710) On 22 October 1715, John Erskine 6th Earl of Mar KG received his commission from James Stuart KG appointing him commander of the Jacobite army. His forces outnumbered the Duke of Argyll's Hanoverian army by three-to-one, and Mar decided to march on Stirling Castle. On 13 November 1715 at Sheriffmuir, the two forces joined battle. The fighting was indecisive, but near the end, the Jacobites numbered 4,000 to Argyll's 1,000. Mar's force began to advance on Argyll, who was poorly protected, but Mar did not close in to claim a decisive victory? Instead, Mar retreated to Perth. On the same day as the Battle of Sheriffmuir, Inverness surrendered to Hanoverian forces, and a smaller Jacobite force led by Mackintosh of Borlum was defeated at Preston. After the unsuccessful invasion of 1715, James lived in Papal territory, first at Avignon (April 1716–February 1717) then at Pesaro (1717) and Urbino (July 1717–November 1718). Pope Clement XI offered James the Palazzo del Re in Rome as his residence, which he accepted. Pope Innocent XIII, like his predecessor, showed much support. James was granted a life annuity of eight thousand Roman scudi. Such help enabled him to organise a Jacobite court at Rome, where he lived in splendour. Control All Sides – Nobody Will Notice
  9. Control All Sides – Nobody Will Notice Let’s take a look at some other major conflicts in British and European history. The Irish Battle of the Boyne 1690 The Battle of the Boyne was a battle in 1690 between the Jacobite forces of the deposed King James II (KG #439 appointed 1642) of England and Ireland, VII of Scotland and the Williamite forces of King William III (KG #456 appointed 1653) who, with his wife Queen Mary II (his cousin and James's daughter), had acceded to the Crowns of England and Scotland in 1689. The battle took place across the River Boyne close to the town of Drogheda in the Kingdom of Ireland, modern-day Republic of Ireland, and resulted in a victory for William. King James II’s commanders included James FitzJames, 1st Duke of Berwick (KG #495 appointed 1688) William's commander-in-chief was Frederic Herman de Schomberg, 1st Duke of Schomberg.(KG #497 appointed 1689) The best Williamite infantry were from Denmark supplied by Prince George of Denmark (KG #487 appointed 1684). Battle of the Boyne 1690 Irish Match Fixing by the Knights of the Garter p3 by Prince Arthur, on Flickr The battle took place on 1 July 1690. William's forces defeated James's army, which consisted mostly of raw recruits in a somewhat one-sided affair. Both sides of the battle were controlled by the Knights of the Garter. Battle of the Boyne 1690 Irish Match Fixing by the Knights of the Garter p1 by Prince Arthur, on Flickr Jacobite and Williamite Commanders - Knights of the Garter controlling both sides of the Battle of the Boyne, Ireland 1690 Battle of the Boyne 1690 Irish Match Fixing by the Knights of the Garter p2 by Prince Arthur, on Flickr Jacobite Commander – Antoine Nompar de Caumont, Duc de Lauzun KG Half the Williamite forces were foreigners – a mixture of French, Dutch, Danes, Swedes and Prussians (Brandenburghers) (Ref: libraryireland.com/JoyceHistory/Boyne.php) Brandenburgian troops were supplied by KG #499 Frederick III, Elector of Brandenburg (appointed 1690) Swedish troops supplied by KG #469 Charles XI, King of Sweden (appointed 1668). The ‘Most Noble Order of the Knights of the Garter’ founded in 1348 Woodstock, Oxford was historically limited to ~24 Knights. It appears that 7 out of these ~24 Knights of the Garter played active roles in the ‘Battle of the Boyne’ with 2 further knights facilitating the conflict with crack troop supplies from Sweden and Brandenburg. The result of the battle and the victors had been decided well in advance of this fateful day. These tactics are timeless……

  13. World War II - controlled on all sides by the Knights of the Garter KG #841 Edward Prince of Wales (appointed a Knight of the Garter in 1911) - later Edward VIII, King of the United Kingdom, abdicating in 1936, then Duke of Windsor. (Windsor Castle – the head-quarters for the Knights of the Garter). Edward was one of the top strategists for World War II with close ties to England, Germany, France, Japan and the USA. Edward’s abdication in 1936 allowed him freer movement with his Knights of the Garter duties in the preparations and co-ordination for World War II. After his abdication, he was created Duke of Windsor. He married Wallis in France on 3 June 1937, after her second divorce became final. In October 1937, the Duke and Duchess visited Nazi Germany and met Adolf Hitler at his Berghof retreat in Bavaria. The visit was much publicised by the German media. During the visit the Duke gave full Nazi salutes. In the Second World War, he was at first stationed with the British Military Mission to France. (During the occupation of France, the Duke of Windsor asked the German forces to place guards at his Paris and Riviera homes; they did so….). In July 1940 the Duke of Windsor was appointed Governor of the Bahamas (off the coast of Florida, USA).

The Tripartite Pact was directed primarily at the United States. Japan’s Decision to Join the Axis Powers…. The formal signing of the Tripartite Pact, another milestone on the road to global war, was preceded by a top secret meeting in Tokyo on the 19th September. The meeting was termed a Conference in the Imperial Presence that had been called by Japanese Emperor Hirohito. It was held in Paulonia Hall of the Outer Ceremonial Palace with everything planned and rehearsed in advance. Imperial Japan joined Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy in World War II to engage Great Britain and the United States….. Pearl Harbour Attack – 7th December 1941 The attack on Pearl Harbor was a surprise military strike by the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service upon the United States (a neutral country at the time) against the naval base at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Territory of Hawaii, just before 08:00, on Sunday morning, December 7, 1941. The attack led to the United States' formal entry into World War II the next day. Japan announced a declaration of war on the United States later that day. The following day, December 8, United States Congress declared war on Japan. On December 11, Germany and Italy each declared war on the U.S., which responded with a declaration of war against Germany and Italy. There were numerous historical precedents for the unannounced military action by Japan, but the lack of any formal warning, particularly while peace negotiations were still apparently ongoing, led President Franklin D. Roosevelt to proclaim December 7, 1941, "a date which will live in infamy". Because the attack happened without a declaration of war and without explicit warning, the attack on Pearl Harbor was later judged in the Tokyo Trials to be a war crime. World War II was being controlled on all sides by the Knights of the Garter. The elite British Order of the Knights of the Garter - limited to 24 Knights at any one time…..
