This revenge was the more outrageous since Henry had personally exerted himself on behalf of the Montforts after Evesham.
On the 4th of August he beset Montforts B F little force with five-fold numbers, and absolutely Evesham.
The only unsatisfactory part of the pacificatioI~ was that Llewelyn of Wales, who had ravaged the whole March while he was Montforts ally, was allowed to keep a broad region (the greater part of the modern shire of Denbigh) which he had won back from its English holders.
He was prepared to refer all important matters to his parliament, and (as we shall see) he improved the shape of that body by reintroducing into it the borough members who had appeared for the first time in Montforts assembly of 1265.
Finding himself involved in two wars~ at once, Edward made an earnest appeal to his subjects to rise to the occasion and because that which touches all should be approved of all summoned the The celebrated model parliament of November 1295, ~odeJ which exactly copied in its constitution Montforts parliaparliament of 1265, members from all cities and ~ of boroughs being summoned along with the knights of the shires, and the inferior clergy being also represented by their proctors.
