King John Seal Pendant
Follow the course of the British Crown with a King John pendant
As the youngest son of Henry II and Eleonore of Aquitaine John was born on 24.12.1167. He was not very tall as an adult and became more and more heavy with increasing age. On the King John Pendant his figure was taken over from a time with attractive appearance. In the course of his life, during the eventful reigns of his father, his older brother Richard Löwenherz and his own regency, he received various interpretations of his name, among others as "Johann Ohneland". This name was given to him as a toddler when an agreed division of the inheritance did not take place. Until his death on 19.10.1216 he was king himself since 1199.
- incl. black ribbon
- pure tin
- metal casting
- Colour: Silver Family
Family ties can be loosened and re-knotted
Similar to the black band to which King John's followers are attached, which can be closed or loosened, in the past deals with other rulers or even the Pope were handled again and again. As the religious or military situation required, assurances were made or promises made were broken. In the time of Henry II, Richard the Lionheart or John this happened without many scruples.
A King John follower is examined
This King John pendant is made of a metal casting of pure tin. The king sitting on the throne is to be seen slightly raised with crown and raised sword in flowing robe. A circulating row of letters on the King John pendant shows among other things his German name ""Johannes"". If you want to try this out, you can take an impression of the King John pendant with some liquid sealing wax.
The much better known brother Richard Löwenherz (just think of the story of Robin Hood) was betrayed by John and after an expedient reconciliation and handing over of the regent he ruled the country until his death. During this time parts of the so-called Angevin Empire and Normandy were lost.
