Quick Reference


After the struggle between Henry III and the baronial party had gone on for several years, it was agreed to put the validity of the provisions of Oxford (1258) to Louis IX of France for arbitration. Louis decided emphatically in favour of his fellow king. The result was not to settle the dispute but to force de Montfort and his supporters into open rebellion.
