The Story of Wat Tyler's Rebellion is but little known, but the hero of this story passes through
that perilous time and takes part in the civil war in Flanders which followed soon after. Although
young he is thrown into many exciting and dangerous adventures, through which he passes with great
coolness and much credit. Brought into royal favor he is knighted for bravery on the battlefield,
and saving the lives of some wealthy merchants, he realizes fortune with his advancement and rank.
New light is thrown on the history of this time and the whole story is singularly interesting.
The events that took place during the latter half of the fourteenth century and the first half of
the fifteenth are known to us far better than those preceding or following them, owing to the fact
that three great chroniclers, Froissart, Monstrelet, and Holinshed, have recounted the events with
a fulness of detail that leaves nothing to be desired. The uprising of the Commons, as they called
themselves - that is to say, chiefly the folk who were still kept in a state of serfdom in the
reign of Richard II.
