    The Triskelion and the Similarities Between Sicily and the Isle of Man

    Legend of the Leg End - The Isle of Man and the Sicilian Triskelions by Prince Arthur, on Flickr

    Past Knights of the Order of the Garter included the following Kings and Lords of the Isle of Man.

    William Montagu, 2nd Earl of Salisbury, King of Mann, KG #6 (apptd 1348)
    Williem le Scrope, 1st Earl of Wiltshire, King of Mann, KG #85 (apptd 1395)
    Henry Percy, 1st Earl of Northumberland, King of Mann, KG #43 (apptd 1366)
    John Stanley, King of Mann, KG #109 (apptd 1405)

    Thomas Stanley, 1st Earl of Derby, King of Mann, KG #224 (apptd 1483)

    James Stanley, 7th Earl of Derby, Lord of Mann, KG #452 (apptd 1650)

    By the passage of the Isle of Man Purchase Act 1765 the title of Lord of Mann was revested into the British Crown. It has therefore since been used in the Isle of Man to refer to the reigning British monarch (all Heads of the Order of the Knights of the Garter).

    Lightbulb The Duke of Wellington

    The Duke of Wellington



    Knight of the Garter (KG #640)


    Legend of the Leg End - Duke of Wellington KG 640 by Prince Arthur, on Flickr


    Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, KG, GCB, GCH, PC, FRS (1 May 1769 – 14 September 1852), was an Anglo-Irish soldier and statesman who was one of the leading military and political figures of 19th-century Britain, serving twice as Prime Minister. His defeat of Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815 puts him in the first rank of Britain's military heroes.

    Arthur Wellesley had strong connections with Freemasonry – both his father and his brother served as Masters and they both became Grand Masters of the Grand Lodge of Ireland.

    Arthur himself was initiated into Trim Lodge (no 494), Ireland at the age of 21.

    Arthur Wellesley was created Marquis of Wellington on 18 August 1812 and was appointed Knight of the Order of the Garter on 4th March 1813.



    Footnote: The Duke of Wellington and Napoléon Bonaparte on the Same Team?


    In 1805, Napoléon Bonaparte (1769 – 1821) was inducted into the Order of the Golden Fleece (founded 1430). In 1812, Arthur Wellesley was inducted into the same Order.

    The Battle of Waterloo, was fought on Sunday, 18 June 1815, near Waterloo in present-day Belgium, then part of the United Kingdom of the Netherlands. A French army under the command of Napoleon Bonaparte was defeated by two of the armies of the Seventh Coalition: a British-led Allied army under the command of the Duke of Wellington, and a Prussian army under the command of Field Marshal Blücher. The battle marked the end of the Napoleonic Wars.

    Lightbulb The 1765 Act of the Stamp

    The American Stamp Act - 1765

    The Stamp Act of 1765 (short title: Duties in American Colonies Act 1765; 5 George III, c. 12) was an Act of the Parliament of Great Britain which imposed a direct tax on the British colonies in America and required that many printed materials in the colonies be produced on stamped paper produced in London, carrying an embossed revenue stamp. Printed materials included legal documents, magazines, playing cards, newspapers, and many other types of paper used throughout the colonies, and it had to be paid in British currency, not in colonial paper money.

    The Stamp Act was very unpopular among colonists. A majority considered it a violation of their rights to be taxed without their consent—consent that only the colonial legislatures could grant. Their slogan was "No taxation without representation". Colonial assemblies sent petitions and protests, and the Stamp Act Congress held in New York City was the first significant joint colonial response to any British measure when it petitioned Parliament and the King.


    Legend of the Leg End - the 1765 American Stamp Act by Prince Arthur, on Flickr


    How the Stamp Act sparked the American Revolution

    Levied on legal documents, bonds, deeds, almanacs, newspapers, college diplomas, playing cards — indeed, on nearly every form of paper used in the Colonies, the stamp tax ignited a firestorm of opposition that swept through the Colonies with unprecedented force. In each Colony, the stamp agents were mobbed and forced to resign. Except in Georgia, the law was effectively nullified before it could be put into effect.

    The Stamp Act sparked more than riots and mobs. It precipitated one of the greatest constitutional debates in Western history. Much of the imperial debate was carried out in pamphlets — inexpensive booklets ranging in length from 5,000 to 25,000 words and printed on anywhere from 10 to a hundred pages or so. Easy and cheap to manufacture, these pamphlets were the instant media of their day, perfect for rapid exchanges of arguments and counter-arguments.

    This dispute between the Colonists and Britons, and among Americans themselves, involved all of the fundamental issues of politics and government — power and liberty, rights and constitutions, popular consent and representation, statutes and fundamental law, and the problem of sovereignty. Once begun, this decadelong contest escalated through several stages until it climaxed with the Americans' Declaration of Independence in 1776.

    Legend of the Leg End - the Gadsden Flag of 1775 by Prince Arthur, on Flickr

    Christopher Gadsden (1724 – 1805) was the principal leader of the South Carolina Patriot movement during the American Revolution.

    In 1766 Gadsden was appointed as a delegate to the Stamp Act Congress in New York City, which was called to protest the Stamp Act.

    Gadsden ‘UNDER-STOOD’ the true meaning of the ‘STAMP ACT’.
