King Richard I of England (Richard the Lionheart), only spoke French, & hardly spent any time in England during his entire life.
In 1192 on his return from the Crusades, Richard was captured near Vienna, by Leopold V, Duke of Austria. Richard was released after 2 years, once a ransom of 34 tons of gold was paid. That's over $1.5 BILLION today (based on 34 short tons).
Richard had been crowned king in Westminster Abbey on the 3rd September 1189. Women and Jews were barred from the coronation due to the fear of "witchcraft." But a few immensely wealthy Jewish usurers attempted to gate-crash, so they could present the king gifts. The Jews were stripped, flogged, and thrown out.
This turned into an almost nation-wide pogrom during which many Jews were killed or forcibly baptised. King Richard issued a Royal Writ demanding the Jews be left alone, he punished many of the perpetrators, and allowed those who had been forcibly baptised to return to Judaism.
Holocaust (burnt offering) to the Devil, "father" of the Jews
Richard of Devizes, was a 12th century monk and chronicler, he wrote of the actions which occurred to the Jews following the coronation of King Richard:"Now in the year of our Lord's incarnation 1189, Richard, the son of King Henry the Second, by Eleanor, and brother of Henry the Third, was consecrated king of the English by Baldwin, archbishop of canterbury, at Westminster, in the nones of the third of September. On the very day of the coronation, about that solemn hour in which the Son was immolated to the Father, a sacrifice of the Jews to their father, the Devil, was commenced in the city of London, and so long was the duration of this famous mystery that the holocaust could scarcely be accomplished the ensuing day. The other cities and towns of the kingdom emulated the faith of the Londoners, and with a like devotion dispatched their bloodsuckers with blood to hell."
The stills of Richard of Devizes chronicles was captured from Simon Schama's highly acclaimed A History of Britain documentary series. Schama states:"Richard of Devizes in in his chronicle was the first to use the word 'holocaustium' to describe the mass murder of England's Jews"
Although I thoroughly enjoy even re-watching this series. Schama, who is Jewish, doesn't mention the context of the passage in which the word "holocaust" appears. Nor does he mention that Jews and women were barred from the coronation.
