Thomas Beaufort, Duke of Exeter

Thomas Beaufort, Duke of Exeter was an English military commander during the Hundred Years' War, Chancellor of England. He was the third of the four children born to John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster, his mistress Katherine Swynford. To overcome their problematic parentage, his parents were married in 1396, he and his siblings were legitimated on two separate occasions, in 1390 and again in 1397, he married the daughter of Sir Thomas Neville of Hornby, Margaret Neville, who bore him one son, Henry Beaufort. However, the child died young. After the accession of his half-brother Henry IV, Beaufort was made a Knight of the Garter. In the following years he held various military posts: constable of Ludlow, appointed Admiral of the North, appointed captain of Calais, Admiral of the North and West he retained the title for life, his most notable action during this decade was commanding the forces against the northern rebellion of 1405. He became Chancellor of England on 31 January 1410, an office he held until 5 January 1412 during a time when King Henry was having trouble with the clergy, returned to military matters.

In 1412 he was created Earl of Dorset. On the accession of Henry V, Beaufort was appointed Lieutenant of Aquitaine and captain of Harfleur, he spent the next years in Normandy as Lieutenant of Normandy. He was created Duke of Exeter for life in 1416. Beaufort was back in England in 1417, while the king was in Normandy, but had to deal with problems in Scotland. In 1418 he went back to Normandy with a large force, taking part in the sieges of Évreux and Rouen. After the fall of Rouen in 1419, he was captain of the city and conquered more of the smaller Norman cities. In 1419, he took the great fortress of Château Gaillard, midway between Rouen and Paris, after a six-month siege. During this time, Henry V had a policy of creating Norman titles for his aristocrats, thus Beaufort was created Count of Harcourt in 1418. In 1420, Beaufort helped negotiate the treaty of Troyes; the next year he was captured at the Battle of Baugé, where his nephew Thomas of Lancaster, 1st Duke of Clarence, was killed. Beaufort was one of the executors of Henry V's will, so returned to England in 1422.

He served on the governing council for the infant king Henry VI, though it is he spent some time in France as well. The character of Exeter in Shakespeare's play Henry V is based on Beaufort, although Beaufort was not created Duke of Exeter until after the Battle of Agincourt. In 1415 he was Earl of Dorset, he died on 31 December 1426. 27 December 1426 or 1 January 1427 have been suggested as alternative dates. As a legitimated grandson of the sovereign, Beaufort bore the arms of the kingdom, differenced by a bordure gobony azure and ermine. List of Lord Chancellors and Lord Keepers

Yeats (horse)

Yeats is an Irish Thoroughbred racehorse who won seven Group One races and is the only horse to win the Ascot Gold Cup four times in succession. Yeats is a dark-coated bay horse with a small white star and white socks on his hind legs foaled on 23 April 2001 at Barronstown Stud. Yeats is by Sadler's Wells, out of Lyndonville by Top Ville, he is owned by Coolmore Stud boss John Magnier. He is named after the painter Jack Butler Yeats. Yeats began his racing career as a two-year-old with a win by four lengths in a maiden race, over eight furlongs, at the Curragh. Yeats was unbeaten in his next two starts, including the Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial in May 2004, was hot favourite for The Derby, but met with a setback just days before the race and missed the rest of the season, returning 1 year finishing 2nd in a Group 3 in Ireland on heavy ground. Yeats' next start came at Epsom in the Coronation Cup, taking on subsequent Japan Cup winner Alkaased and dual Coronation Cup winner Warrsan. Jockey Kieren Fallon adopted front-running tactics on the colt, pulled away in the final quarter-mile to win by more than 2 lengths.

The win made Yeats the first Irish-based horse to win the Coronation Cup since Roberto in 1973. Yeats attempted to follow up in the Group 1 Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud over the same distance, with new jockey Jimmy Fortune adopting hold-up tactics, but they failed to pay off, Yeats trailed in 9th, 20 lengths behind the winner Alkaased; the Irish St. Leger came next, reunited with Kieren Fallon, adopting similar hold-up tactics as Fortune in Yeats' previous start, was staying-on towards the finish to come 4th, just a length and a half behind the winner Collier Hill, his final start of the season was to be the Canadian International Stakes at Woodbine Racetrack in Canada over 12 furlongs, but he missed the break and could never recover, finishing 12 lengths behind the victor. Yeats' first start of the 2006 season was at Royal Ascot in the Ascot Gold Cup, some 247 days after the Woodbine Canadian International Stakes. Fallon adopted a prominent position towards the start, got to the front 4 furlongs out, was only pulling away towards the end, winning by 4 lengths from Prix du Cadran winner Reefscape.

He attempted a rare double with the Goodwood Cup at the Glorious Goodwood meeting, carrying top weight and easing to victory by 5 lengths under new jockey Michael Kinane, since Fallon was banned from riding in the UK. Yeats finished a disappointing 7th in the Melbourne Cup, with Kieren Fallon stating that his mount just lacked his usual finishing kick and was not suited by the stop-start pace of the race, he was forced to make a big move a mile out to get to the front, ensuring that he maintained his speed for the finishing straight. He was voted the 2006 Cartier Racing Award as Top Stayer. In 2007 Yeats won his second consecutive Ascot Gold Cup and followed that up by winning the Irish St. Leger on his third attempt, giving trainer Aidan O'Brien his first win in that race, the 1-2 as stablemate Scorpion came a close second to Yeats. On 19 June 2008 Yeats became only the second horse in history to win the Ascot Gold Cup three times in succession, defeating Geordieland by 5 lengths, he followed this on 31 July with a second victory in the Goodwood Cup, winning by 7 lengths.

In the year, on 26 October he won the Prix Royal-Oak at Longchamp. On 18 June 2009, Yeats made Ascot history, becoming the first horse to win the Ascot Gold Cup four times in succession, ridden by Johnny Murtagh, winning by 3½ lengths, making him arguably the best stayer of all time. Although many believe Ardross to be the best stayer of modern times. Yeats was retired to stud after his 2009 campaign, he has stood at Coolmore's headquarters farm in Ireland, but now stands at the company's National Hunt breeding farm in Ireland.
