THURSDAY, APRIL 29, UIA'THEVILMC (AIIK.V COUIUEU NliMS Unexpected Occurs at Coronations' Blood and Fire and Low Comedy Have Marked Past Crownings BY MOIiniS GlUHiUT NBA Service Slaff Writer nrillsh rulers have not always hcen as mannerly and upper-crust as the nrcsenl reigning'house, and coronaltons nol always as high- toned and genteel as the approaching one should be. Some coronations, in fact, have been prslty rough. Tragedy has dawned wilh the grcal day of crowning, more than once. "Thai hollow crown," which Shakespeare says, "rounds the mortal leinples of a kins." has sometimes surrounded a powerful headache, too. And once in a while, through the centuries, a louch of low comedy ' has muscled in amid the pomp and damlement, as if to prove thai even royalty is subject 16 an occasional kidding. William llic Conqueror's Crovt-iiiijg Set London Afire William Ihe Conqueror, at Ills coronation In Wcslminstcr Abbey, cot oif importunity on llic wrong foot. He was new lo his job, didn't like Ihe. Angles and Saxons much anyway (and they had pretty good reason not lo like him either), and slood In considerable danger ol life and limb. So when crowds outside Ihe Abbey began yelling, William's soldiers imagined Ihe noise wns a unified menace or razzberry, and maybe il was. William's marines lauded to es- lablish order, anrt did so will swords .battlcaxos, and olher un friendly lools. The slaughter was considerable, and then the Iroop tried a itllte arson. Pretty soon a sizeable. section of London wa blazing merrily. Meanwhile onlv William antl a few priests were lefl inside Ihe Abbey and the ceremony was finished before practically no witnesses. llichari! I Had Triple Ceremony Richard the Lion-Hearted seemed to like being crowned. It got to be a habit with him. The first Urn? •was at Westminster in 1180. Pear- ing that, like vaccinalion, it hadn't taken or had worn olf. he was crowned again eleven years later. This was on ths island of Cyprus during the Crusades, just to make H'good, he did it all over agfiln in Winchester when he returned to England. His first coronation was t h c worst because of the massacre that accompanied it. The persons who were massacred were Jews, the Crusaders of those days being as resolute arfi-Semlles as will be found today in any German becr- % gardcn. Jewish homes made good bonfires, too., Henry Ill's Crown Was Makethifl Most piliful of all coronations; was lhat of Henry III. at. the age of 9 years in the year of 1207. England was a prey to anarchy, armies of France were invading^lhe land, only a few nobles still surrounded the little king. The crown and ' .royal jewels had ben lost l)y the late King John in' fording The Wash, an estuary of the North Sea. Speed seemed so essential thai the forlorn lillle band supporting Henry decided to have him hastily crowned at Gloucester wilh a simple fillet of gold. As il lurned out his was a long, if Inglorious, reign. The great Elisabeth was crowned under somewhat similar national conditions, England being Ihen much disrupted and threalened from abroad. Bui her coronation procession was triumphant, she won Canilliersville Society — Persona!
