Noble Friends,

On this date in 1120, The White Ship sank in the English Channel. 
William Adelin, heir and only legitimate son of King Henry I of England, 
was drowned the tragedy: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Ship .

Young William's death led to 18 years of civil war for the throne 
between Stephen of Blois and his cousin Matilda (aka the Empress Maude) 
known as the Anarchy: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Anarchy .

Yours Aye,

Lord Mungo Napier, That Crazy Scot
