“The Porter and the Three Ladies” The story of The Porter and the Three Ladies is all about when to speak and not to. Especially, if you’re a guest in someone else’s house, the results of opening your mouth or questioning the home owner could be devastating. Or even worse, life taking. Shahrazad begins the story by introducing us to a man, whom is a Porter, and his encounter with 3 most gorgeous sisters he has ever laid eyes upon.

Moreover, Richard III was very good at politics, having a lavish court and is good at using propaganda, yet he is highly unpopular among both the people and the nobility; his reign only lasts two years before the throne is usurped by Henry Tudor. Therefore, while both the main Yorkist Kings during this period did go some way to restoring royal authority in England, their successes were limited. Edward IV was successful at restoring royal authority as he was able to control the different regions of the Kingdom, such as the North and Wales, through the use of magnates. During his reign, Edward makes Richard, his brother, the duke of Gloucester, and puts Rivers in charge of Wales and his son. This meant that these areas, which were traditionally either pro-Lancastrian or prone to rebellion, were more controlled during Edward IV’s reign, which helped to restore royal authority.

He became a Congressman at age 36 and spent 23 terms in the House, four of them as Speaker. He represented the end of “Czar Rule” that began with Speaker Reed in 1889.

But somewhere along the line, Uncle Joe got out of step.
