The fraudulent invasion of Ireland…

This is one that may interest Sharon and the team at 1169. Though it is too late to anything about it now, it seems the orginal papal document the Laudibiliter, which Henry II interpreted to mean he was granted Lordship over Ireland by the only ‘multi-national’ in existence back then, was frauded up by dropping three crucial paragraphs. More of an historical curio than anything else. Photos from the programme here.
