Leonard Sylvain Julien (Jules) Sandeau (1811-1883) was a French novelist. He met George Sand, then Madame Dudevant, at the house of a friend, and when she came to Paris in 1831, they had a relationship. The intimacy did not last long, but it produced "Rose et Blanche" (1831), a novel cowritten under the pseudonym J. Sand, from which George Sand took her famous pseudonym.

Henry I, son of William the Conqueror, ruled from 1100 to 1135, a time of fundamental change in the Anglo-Norman world. This long-awaited biography, written by one of the most distinguished medievalists of his generation, offers a major reassessment of Henry’s character and reign. Challenging the dark and dated portrait of the king as brutal, greedy, and repressive, it argues instead that Henry’s rule was based on reason and order. C. Warren Hollister points out that Henry laid the foundations for judicial and financial institutions usually attributed to his grandson, Henry II. Royal government was centralized and systematized, leading to firm, stable, and peaceful rule for his subjects in both England and Normandy. By mid-reign Henry I was the most powerful king in Western Europe, and with astute diplomacy, an intelligence network, and strategic marriages of his children (legitimate and illegitimate), he was able to undermine the various coalitions mounted against him. Henry strove throughout his reign to solidify the Anglo-Norman dynasty, and his marriage linked the Normans to the Old English line. Hollister vividly describes Henry’s life and reign, places them against the political background of the time, and provides analytical studies of the king and his magnates, the royal administration, and relations between king and church. The resulting volume is one that will be welcomed by students and general readers alike.

Orders of Knighthood and of Merit

Publisher: Colin Smythe Limited

Pages: 714
Year: 1995
This book, building upon Archbishop's Cardinale's Orders of Knighthood, Awards and the Holy See, this book presents the many Catholic-founded Orders of Knighthood in a new perspective, and deals not only with the Pontifical Equestrian Orders and the two surviving religious Orders of Knighthood, but with the many Catholic-founded but secularized Orders--dynastic, state, and crown--that exist today. Drawing on source materials never before available, the author is able to expose misunderstandings and misinformation and highlight errors that have been perpetuated, sometimes for centuries.
