O nosso rei era um homem agressivo, cruel, sádico e com um grande sentido de justiça. Tinha prazer em ser juíz e uma frieza especial, pois muitas vezes durante as sentenças ou castigos comia. Era bastante querido pelo povo pois os favorecia, ajudar os mais fracos era um dos seus objectivos. Mas foi querido também pela nobreza. Foi temido por todas as classes.
O rei legislava contra alcoviteiras, adúlteros, clérigos que faltavam aos seus votos, como é o caso do Bispo do Porto que dormia com uma mulher casada e apenas não foi açoitado até à morte pelo Rei pois os criados o impediram.
Mas um dos casos mais marcantes ocorre quando lhe relatam que um filho agrediu o seu pai. Após interrogatório o Rei confirma a suspeita de que o filho é bastardo, fruto de uma violação que sua mãe sofreu de um padre. D. Pedro visita a igreja do mesmo e no final da missa como castigo ordena que coloquem o padre dentro de um cortiço e o serrem ao meio. .
Our king was an aggressive man, cruel, sadic and with a very justice sense. He had the pleasure to be judge and had a special coldness because during the courts and punishments he eats. He was very dear by people because he favored them, he helped the weakest, that was one of his goals. But was dear as well by the nobility, but feared by all classes.
The king punished the one who gossips, the adulters, the clergy's the ones that fault to their initial vows, like the Oporto bishop that slept with a married woman, and was not killed by the king with a whip because the king's peasant stopped him.But one of the most disturbing cases was when the king knew that one son has assaulted his father. After an interrogation, the king confirms his suspicions, the son was a bastard fruit of one rape from a priest. King Pedro visits the church of this priest and at the end of the sermon order that the priest was sawed in half. .

Perfect summation of a visit to plantation country. #houmashouse #history

This week we stopped at a historical marker on the side of the road. We took a couple big jumps over a ditch to read the plaque. It talked about a vibrant town that used to exist just 50 years ago. A big town center, a mill, thousands of residents. Now it's just an empty field of weeds.
Later in the week we visited these large antebellum plantations near New Orleans. They tell a similar story as that empty field. A time not too long ago of wealth, opulence and power fueled by cotton, rice and sugar cane plantations. You get a sense of the stark contrast of living standards with the slave cabins right next door to the mansions. Now they stand as museums.
An important part of our travels and adventures is to learn from the past. We're blessed to live here in America and have opportunities to explore. It can be challenging to teach little kids about some topics, but hopefully some of the visuals will provide them the memories to spark that education later in life.

Understanding our past and how it has shaped our city helps us #tellthefullhistory and be more effective advocates for our historic places. Join us on Sunday, Jan 26 for a guided walk of For the Record, an interactive timeline that highlights people and events that have influenced the Long Beach we live in today. ▫️▫️▫️ Did you know that until 1963 a family of color, regardless of income, could easily and legally be denied the right to live in a particular house or neighborhood This practice, known as redlining, became illegal with the Fair Housing Act of 1963, but new tactics such as “blockbusting” began. Discriminatory housing policies have had long-term effects on communities like North Long Beach. ▫️▫️▫️ Read more about this and more at LBtimeline.com or join us to experience the timeline for yourself. No registration is required. Tour meets at Jordan High School and ends at Michelle Obama Neighborhood Library.
