|The blood libel in action|
|Little William on the Cross|
Case II: Harold of Gloucester -- Not many details, except that he was killed in 1168 and Jews were blamed. I don't doubt that the resulting frenzy was brutal. His feast is on March 25; Easter fell on March 31 in 1168.
Case III: Robert of Bury St. Edmunds -- The death of a child named Robert in 1181, again coincident with the Easter season, occasioned another spike in anti-Semitic violence. Not many details of the immediate fallout are recorded, but a Palm Sunday massacre of Jews in 1190 killed fifty-seven people, and within a decade, all Jews were expelled from Bury St. Edmunds.
