City Of London Corporation The City of London Corporation is a Masonic, private, independent, sovereign state occupying approximately one square mile within the heart of the greater London area inside the old Roman walls of London.
The supreme ruler of the City is the Lord Mayor who is elected once a year and lives in the Mansion House. The City has a resident population of about 5, that rises to about two million during the week when people surge in and out each day to work.
The financial centre of the world, it is often termed the 'wealthiest square mile on earth. All of the giant, largely Jewish international banks and corporations in the City of London that control the world are members of one or another of the Twelve Great Livery Companies domiciled in Guildhall or the Hall of the City of London Corporation.
As the result of a 'gentleman's agreement' between the sovereign and the City merchants and bankers made many hundreds of years ago, the Lord Mayor is officially head of the Corporation and is allowed to operate independently of the sovereign. However, the wealth of the world held in the Corporation ultimately is the sovereign's, because, should the gentleman's agreement break down, the sovereign has the power to "rescind" the Corporation's independence.
The Queen sometimes refers to the Corporation as "The Firm. All of the big banks and companies in both New Zealand and Australia are either directly or indirectly City of London-controlled. In ancient times the City marshals and sheriffs were employed to ensure that all the "council" rates and taxes were paid to the City on behalf of the king.
As the result, the Jews promptly commenced seizing the commoner's property for not paying the interest, rates and taxes to the City and King. Subsequently, a rapid increase in hate against the "King's Jews" was initiated. This led to the massacre of Jews at York in New York in America was later named by British Jewish immigrant bankers in memory of the event.
The Jews of Amsterdam approached Cromwell in to allow them to return England but a decision was not reached.
However this rivalry stimulated the formation of many trading companies in England including The Formation of the East India Company. When in the Scots tried to emulate the trading English juggernaut with the ill-fated Scottish East India Company " Darien Expedition " the Scots may have been deliberately lured into bankruptcy to sign the Union of Parliaments.
Ultimately, whoever successfully rules must have the "will" of the people. Historically, in the City many although certainly not all monarchs, have ruled with the "will" of their subjects. But rarely, if ever, have the bankers, rich barons or knights been respected in this position.
More often than not they've been consistently hated. Even when monarchs have done a poor job, provided they have still had the "will" of the people, the wealthy bankers' position has been extremely "perilous" to say the least.
On this particular occasion the Lord Mayor ended up being thrown into the Tower where he died. Henry III vetoed nine Mayors in his long reign, and jailed another who died in prison.
On one occasion the threat to the Lord Mayor's massive wealth and power has not come directly from the monarch, but from the people themselves.
But Brembre had few friends among the common people having deposed the popular Mayor Adam Stable, and when he re-imposed the hated Poll Tax which had caused the revolt, the mob turned on him.
He was given a mockery of a trial and was then hanged, drawn and quartered.Which generals in history were most respected by the soldiers who served under them? Which generals were most despised?

Little is known of the internal history and dealings of the early Phoenician city. The initial city covered the area around Byrsa, paid an annual tribute to the nearby Libyan tribes, and may have been ruled by a governor from Tyre, whom the Greeks identified as "king".
His father Hamilcar Barca was the leading Carthaginian commander during the First Punic War and his younger brothers were Mago and Hasdrubal, and he was brother-in-law to Hasdrubal the Fair. For instance, we can write about Hannibal's new ideas about strategy in this or that battle.
