He overtaxed and alienated his barons. So enraged were the barons by Johns excesses that by the winter of 1215, they had offered England to Louis, King of France, their suzerain lord, if only he would land an army and take it.This, Louis was about to do. But, King John, the wrong man for the times, stubbornly would not yield. Despite his many faults, John was a tireless organizer, and with a third of Englands nobility behind him, and in resolute command of his mercenary army, he began to turn the situation around. The barons recognized it was time to change tactics. If battle could not win the day, perhaps assassination could.To little villages hidden away in the Cotswold Mountains all this grand activity seemed little more than the words of a troubadour song -- until Cadmon Druce, a knight not seen since the Third Crusade, returned home.
