Knight Of The Shire
KNIGHTS OF THE SHIRE (Latin : milites comitatus ) was the formal title for members of parliament (MPs) representing a county constituency in the UK House of Commons , from its origins in the medieval Parliament of England
Parliament of England
until the Redistribution of Seats Act 1885 ended the practice of each UK county (or shire ) forming a single constituency . The corresponding titles for other MPs were burgess in a borough constituency (or citizen if the borough had city status ) and baron for a Cinque Ports constituency . Knights of the shire had more prestige than burgesses, and sitting burgesses often stood for election for the shire in the hope of increasing their standing in Parliament. The name "knight of the shire" originally implied that the representative had to be a knight , and the writ of election referred to a belted knight until the 19th century; but by the 14th century men who were not knights were commonly elected

Merciless Parliament
The MERCILESS PARLIAMENT, a term coined by Augustinian chronicler Henry Knighton , refers to the English parliamentary session of February to June 1388, at which many members of Richard II 's Court were convicted of treason . The session was preceded by a period in which Richard's power was revoked and the kingdom placed under the regency of the Lords Appellant . Richard had launched an abortive military attempt to overthrow the Lords Appellant and negotiate peace with the kingdom of France so he could focus all his resources against his domestic enemies. The Lords Appellant counteracted the attempt and called the Parliamentary session to expose his attempts to make peace. Parliament reacted with hostility and convicted almost all of Richard's advisers of treason. Most were executed and a few exiled. Parliament was dissolved after violence broke out in Kent and the Duke of York and his allies began objecting to some executions
