[Sticky] Living Map - Locations of Barons and Nobility during the Barons' War
I've created a living map. The map is to give a visual representation of holdings - an idea where people were.
Preface: I know little of the 13th century, though early "medieval" has always interested me more than late (Tudor).
I have placed, where I've seen fit, the localities of the 25, the Loyalists, and the Bishops.
I know of at least 3 Barons that we can argue (discuss) over heraldry, but I have tried to be diligent.
Please enjoy the map, and if you have a fictional Baron and heraldry that you would like to add, please comment below and I will add it to the map.
This is great, thank you.
I have stuck it to the top of the board so people can see who is local to them.
Cheers George! 😀
Edited the Title - hope you dont mind!
Great site! Interested in German nobles too? Perhaps I could send you some informations.
Likewise for French, if you'd like! Excellent project!

I would like to add that Nottingham and its castle is a royalist stronghold and is technically part of king John's holdings, but apart from that it's a wonderful map.
No Earls of Arundel, I will have to cry in the corner 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 😆
that's an awesome map and really helpful! On the subject of heraldry. The Malet or Mallet heraldic arms are incorrect. They should be a red field with 3 gold clasps or buckles.
To avoid confusion, like the other religious orders in the Angevin realm, the Templars were loyal to their leadership, which ultimately meant the Pope rather than King John. There is no surviving evidence that either they or the Hospitallers fought for John 👍
Now let’s not forget Robert de Brus 5th Lord of Annandale. His family having established themselves in Guisborough and Skelton in the North East.
