During the Battle of Lewes in 1264 the king’s brother, who titled himself “Richard, King of the Romans, Always August”, hid in a windmill to escape from the rebel army. They surrounded the mill, taunting him with cries of, “Are you a king or a miller?” Richard had no choice but to surrender. However, he let it be known that someone of his status could only give up his sword to a fellow noble. The best the rebels could come up with was John Bevis, a vassal to the Earl of Gloucester.
This windmill was made by Dan Morgan. King Richard is a Replicants figure (see the Lewes section). The rebels are made up of Replicants, other makes and some conversions.
