1. MUERTES VIOLENTAS

 

Rasputin - Este monje tiene que ser el rey de los asesinados. Según qué leyenda creemos no murió a pesar de ser envenenado con cianura,

 

Ivan Grozny (Ivan the Terrible)

 

 

Enrique Granados, de un ataque de torpedos al S.S. Sussex, en el mismo año, 1916

 

William I (The Conquerer) was killed because his horse bucked after stepping in the burning cinders of a town that he had set light to. It was only a slight buck, but the king landed on the saddle pommel and died due to internal bleeding.

Lorca

 

M José de Larra

817 - Bernard revolted (against his brother, Louis the Pious) but… failed. He was tried in 818 and sentenced to death but, following the common Carolingian pattern, this was commuted to blinding, from which, however, he dies anyway

                                   - Christopher Wickham – The Inheritance of Rome, Ch 16, P.395

 

Boethius 524/525 CE - The method of Boethius' execution varies in the sources; he was perhaps killed with an axe or a sword, or was clubbed to death. According to another version a rope was attached round his head and tightened till his eyes bulged out, then his skull was cracked.

 

 

 

EN BATALLA

Simon Sudbury, arzobispo de Canterbury, decapitado después de la sublevación de los campesinos en 1381. Después de OCHO intentos. (Aún se puede ver la calavera en la Iglesia de St Gregory en Sudbury)

 

George Butterworth, también matado por la bala de un francotirador, esta vez en 1916 en las trincheras de la Primera Guerra. Tenía sólo 31 años.

 

 

VENGANZA

The 15-year old Secondotto Monferrato (was) a maniac who got his sexual excitement from asphyxiating young male retainers. …while he was energetically strangulating a servant, he was killed by one of his own soldiers.

-       Frances Stonor Saunders – Hawkwood, Ch 11, P.139

 

Como nos gusta leer historias de venganza. De la Inquisición que entró en Teruel con todo el poder de la iglesia católica detrás y salió apedreada por la población. Es una lástima que lo mismos no pasó a Matthew Hopkins el así llamado ‘Witchifinder General’ de la Guerra Civil inglesa.

Mussolini

 

Thomas Midgeley

 

Saddam Hussein

 

The guy in the penal colony

 

 

Cases of captured mercenaries in 14th C Italy. One was dragged through the mud, his bottom flayed and symbolically wiped before being executed, while another was tied to a post and used as target practice by the villagers who threw stones, daggers and skewers at him ‘until he expired’

From ‘Hawkwood – Diabolical Englishman’ by Frances Stonor Saunders, P. 70, Chapter 5 ‘Betrayal’

 

Nikolai II de Rusia - Despite huge posters ordering people to keep off the streets, vast crowds gathered and were only dispersed after some 200 had been shot dead, though a company of the Volinsky Regiment fired into the air rather than into the mob, and a company of the Pavlovsky Life Guards shot the officer who gave the command to open fire. 

 

Ibn-al-Zayyat (‘Abbasid Vizir, 833 – 836) murió en una máquina de tortura diseñada por él mismo

                       (Chris Wickham, The Inheritance of Rome Ch 14, P.238)
