The fall of Judah and the beginnings of exile are introduced quickly. To establish
the pedigree of the hero, the book of Daniel does not dwell here on
Nebuchadnezzar as the archvillain of ancient Jewish history, or on the exile as
tragedy. The Lord still controls human events, even the successes of foreign
kings over Judah. The dating of events is not accurate: The third year of King
Jehoiakim was 606 BCE, but Nebuchadnezzar captured Jerusalem in 597 BCE.
Vessels, Ezra 1.7–8.

theme with which Aeneas begins is the folly of those who serve kings, and not an
attack on kings themselves. Poggio's work, on the other hand, had concentrated
on demonstrating the un- happiness of kings and other rulers, and he had
relegated the folly of courtiers to a passage near the end. Aeneas's message
could hardly be clearer: God's word enjoins us to obey kings but to follow one's
conscience in serving them. Poggio (whatever he says to Petworth) put the
emphasis in his ...

22 His grandsons too were thought to have had a measure of the same ability to
foresee and suppress the plots of their enemies.23 The vigilance of powerful
kings and their trusted courtiers made the Carolingian court and, perhaps, all
courts claustrophobic and edgy places in which to live and work, for kings and
their close advisers were always on the lookout for secretive and deceitful nobles
and advisers.24 Even Einhard, that most prudent of courtiers, carefully avoided
busybodies ...

"Gentlemen! The King!" shouted the guards in the adjoining second antechamber
, as both doors swung open wide and His Majesty proceeded across the room,
not acknowledging the bows and curtsies of the dinner servants, who were
awaiting further instructions there, nor heeding their murmurs of "Your Majesty";
and "Gentlemen! The King!" shouted yet other guards as I followed Him into the
adjacent chamber, where many of the courtiers had regrouped, who also bowed,
curtsied, ...

century king, however energetic or strong-willed, could hope to govern without
expert advice and assistance. For matters of high policy, administrative and
judicial decisions, and the general day- to-day functioning of the administrative
machine, the king relied heavily on the collective wisdom, specialized knowledge
and advice of his council. Recent research has gone far to show that the Yorkist

I also saw and see them as framing this sensibility in its historical trajectory,
significant routing signs in a history of ennobling love.1 It is at a high point when
the king's love ends war, and it has reached a serious crisis when a king's
daughter can confuse official arrangements for succession to the throne by letting
personal considerations intrude. In the course of mv reading I came across hosts
of courtiers and aspirants to office declaring their love of kings and receiving
rewards from ...
