The Household Knights of King John

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

In the course of producing this work, I have incurred innumerable debts, none of which it is possible to repay. Just as my household knights were perpetually indebted to King John for the gifts he gave them, I, too, am forever bound in gratitude to those who have made it possible for me to write this book.

Maria Sophia Quine, my long-suffering wife, has read more drafts of this work than she would care to remember. She has graciously allowed my household knights to overshadow her fascist thugs for far too long.

In addition to these professional debts, I have personal debts that should be acknowledged. The first is to Des Seal and Robin Ridley, both of whom provided me with friendship and beer throughout the PhD thesis experience and after. The second is to the Institute of Historical Research, which provided the congenial atmosphere in which I met many fellow scholars who were to become my friends. To these friends I owe my sanity, for, in the comfort of the SOAS bar and elsewhere, they provided intellectual stimulation, good company, and, most importantly, blessed relief from the 'drudgery of the rolls'.
