My God! This is a wonderful land and a faithless one, for she has exiled, slain, destroyed, and ruined so many kings, so many rulers, so many great men, and she is always diseased and suffering from differences, quarrels, and hatred between her people.

September 21, 1399 Remark made in the tower of London, where he was forced to abdicate ten days later.
