SaolCuir in Eagar

Bhí tailte ag Liam sa Normainn agus le linn a réimis, daingníodh greim na Normannach ar an Bhreatain Bheag agus an Albain.

Scríobh an starí Frank Barlow[1] faoi

"He had maintained good order and satisfactory justice in England and restored good peace to Normandy. He had extended Anglo-Norman rule in Wales, brought Scotland firmly under his lordship".

agus

"[a] rumbustious, devil-may-care soldier, without natural dignity or social graces, with no cultivated tastes and little show of conventional religious piety or morality—indeed, according to his critics, addicted to every kind of vice, particularly lust and especially sodomy."

Ní raibh Liam pósta riamh agus ní raibh aon ghean ag a Chúirt air.

 
Ní raibh sé éasca do Anraí I teacht i gcomharbacht ar Liam.

Dúnmharú ?Cuir in Eagar

Bhí Liam amach ag seilbh sa New Forest nuair a maraíodh é. Scaol fear de na huaisle, Walter Tirel, saighead leis, is cosúil.

Gan oidhre, tháinig deartháir níos óige leis, Anraí I, i gcomharbas air, ach ní gan dua.
