simon de montfort was a powerful french nobleman who was responsible for the sacking of beziers in the french/catholic crusades against the cathar people. when asked how his troops should distinguish between the catholics and cathars trapped in the city he replied... 'kill them all and let god distinguish between the two' 20,000 people died in the few days that followed.
what a lot of people don't know is that his youngest son also called simon, became ruler of england for a short time (1263-64) and formed the first elected parliment in europe.Nov 05, 2009 03:51 by coco-tidan
