“I’m bored with this game Henry,” said Queen Matilda, “constantly bickering with our neighbours across the border. Either take them on in battle or walk away”
“It is no game dearest,” said the King “but I agree that it needs to be resolved”
Hours later the King met with his senior Knights.
“Your Majesty,” said Sir Thomas “I understand the Rooks have flown our foe’s palace, a sign of certain calamity so it is expedient we throw down the gauntlet without delay”
Days later Henry’s army stood atop a hill facing the enemy across the valley. The Bishop sat upon hs steed before the heavily armoured Pawns and made the sign of the cross.
“For God, King and country, go forward” commanded Sir Thomas.
The battle was soon over and Henry was victorious. He turned to his battle-weary soldiers.
“Checkmate” he yelled.
