Event: Advice/counselRobert 5.role as advisor to Edward 15 causes faction at court

Scholarly Info
Description On becoming bishop of London with the authority derived from his promotion [Robert 5] intruded himself more than was necessary in directing the course of royal councils and acts; so much so, indeed, that, according to the saying "Evil communications corrupt good manners", through his assiduous communication with him the king [Edward 15] began to neglect more useful advice. Hence, as generally happens, he offended quite a number of the nobles of his kingdom by means of another's fault. And for such reasons his realm gradually became disturbed, because, when the holders of dignities died, one set of men wanted vacant sees for their own friends, and others were alienating them to strangers.
