William, Earl of Salisbury - Teddies of Abbeystowe
Medieval Teddies of Abbeystowe. These teddies are very cute and very collectible. Unique and exclusive to the Abbey they make a wonderful gift - if you can bear to part with them.
Meet…William, Earl of Salisbury, is named in honour of William Longsword (also called Longespée), an Anglo-Norman nobleman and half-brother to King Richard I (the Lionheart) and King John. He is known for his valiant command of the English forces at the Battle of Damme in 1213. William's nickname "Longespée" is generally taken as a reference to his great physical strength and the oversize weapons he used in battle. However, our William, Earl of Salisbury, has retired, and now the only weapon he wields is when he is gardening…
Stylishly attired by the Abbey Made team.
