Death of Wat Tyler
Wat Tyler, while talking to the King, grew violent, forgot to whom he was speaking, and laid his hand on the king’s bridle, as if to threaten or take him prisoner. Upon this, the Lord Mayor, with his mace-dealt the man such a blow that he fell from his horse, and an attendant thrust him through with a sword.
