I AO 17 THE CURSE OP WUHAN RUFUS
HEN a certain redfaced red halred redbearded man galloped iJi
W the English roads In the last part of the eleventh century thj
lieasnuts secretly crossed themselves and muttered prayer tied
their breath
This horseman was William II King of England known u Ruful I
and as tho nod King Nor were the florid face and fiery hair hla sol
claims to the title of Red for Rufus was a man of bloody deeds Thji
curse of God wa believed to hang over him Rufus himself laughed at title
curse but the common people who hated and feared him believed In it
And their belief was one day to be justified
England had been snatched from Its rude Saxon masters by a Norman
duke William who Invaded the Island in 1066 beat down all opposition
and won for himself the title of Conqueror and reigned as King Will
lam I He parcelled up much of tho conquered kingdom among his Norman
nobles crashed the liberties of the Saxon and ruled with a hand of Iron
William laved hunting To gratify his taste he set apart tor himself a hug
deer pork HI square nilleu In area which he called the
t j UXTX L L he and hU
JL New forest In order to secure this park
The Hand j son William Rufus destroyed all towns village and c
I of Iron tarns that stood within tho limit of the proposed
i b iimn > x I Forest arid thus drove hundreds of poor people out I
s iu in g Ui oiaie For this outrage t I
I solemn and tcrrlbla curse was Invoked by one sufferer upon both father and aon
The maledictions results so tar as the Conqueror was concerned ware not
long delayed ns daa sere sped III strut Ins fuvorltu son Hlchard died and
J
ho himself was killed by a fall from his horse at a time when he was on the very
eve of fresh conquests The English crown by right of succession should have Ii
gone to the Conquerors elder son Robert Hut Rufus hurried to England ieli d
the thtonu and made good his claim to It by trickery amid sheer force of anna
Then to ialse money nu oppressed the lop To strengthen his own power he
Increased the tyrannies his father had pructiaed He insulted the clergy plun
dered the Church estate committed sacrilege scoffed at the Pope duped his own
brother Into parting with the heat shreds of territory and In a ecare ol other ways
mud himself abhorred
So vile was his life that It was openly elated he had old his eoul to the devil
fearless and danger lovitg he bore out this superstition by his very recklussnea
Once for Instance ha embarked In a small boat to cross he English Channel ta
the teeth of a furious gale Wjeu his trembling courtier Legged him to taro
back Rufus cried Jeeringly i
J
Kings cannot drownl
Ha built London Urldge and completed ths famous Tower of London anil
Westminster tall during hU stormy reign That Is about all hla real I8rvke r
posterity
An ancient writer thus sums up the Red Kings character i
All things that displeased God pleased him and all things that God love ht
hated deadly On recovering from a sickness ho swore that Uod should never bar f
any good In him for nil tho ell lie had brought upon him from that Um1M
succeeded In U1 ho undertook ur wished tor The very land and sea teemed to I
carve his will as if God would leave him without excuse by granting all ke f
wished
Rufus inherited his fathers love for hunting lie spent days at a time pur
suing deer through the New forest laughing to scorn the curse that had betA
laid upon that despoiled region
One morning In 11 < X > when hs was fortyfour and had reigned Just thirteen
years he entered the Korcdt with his followers There was scant chance of any i r
I
Intrusion upon this tract by the plain people Not only did they dread the curie j
but the King had ordained such barlnrouj penalties for the Maying of a deer that I s
few dared risk death by being found lingering In the park I
The monarch following a stag rode far ahuad of his companions Never again
was he seen alive His dtvxd body later win found lying In a section of the Korea
whence he and hla father had evicted a large vlllageful of peasants He was all
Walter Tyrrell knight of his
by some to have been shot accidentally by one a
Other old chroniclers suy an arrow was found driven
iI through hIs heart and ilnt that the shaft was sped byl
i The Crime of t a divine hand To this day his death Is a matter ol I
the New Forest I absolute mystery 1e 1
The superstitious folk of the time firmly belief
w r v v Rufus was slain by some unearthly agency as a result
of the curse Thc foresters who found him lying dead in the woods scarce dared
risk supernatural wrath by touching him At last they wrapped him In a coarse
I noollen cloak tossed him into a ilurioal burners cart and had him trundled to f
Winchester There on tho same day he was hurried Into u grave None mourned

Men arlng lest the curse might Infect them shunD hU crave and the
