Event: Alms-giving, Grant and GiftEdward 15-Eadgyth 3.kindness to the poor

Scholarly Info
Description [Edward 15] stooped with great mercy to the poor and infirm, and fully maintained many of these not only daily in his royal court but also at many places in his kingdom. His royal consort [Eadgyth 3] did not restrain him in those good works in which he prepared to lead the way, but rather urged speedier progress, and often enough seemed even to lead the way herself. For while he would give now and then, she was prodigal, but aimed her bounty to such good purpose as to consider the highest honour of the king as well.
