The Gang of Five
It is quite fitting that the sweltering hot days of July arrive right when the gang confront the barrens of the Mysterious Beyond in the fifth film showcase.  It is almost like us admins planned it that way or something.  :bestsharptooth

This month in the Monthly Showcase we are featuring the Land Before Time V.  Feel free to share your thoughts and opinions in that topic.  Additionally, there is a new fanfiction prompt challenge for the months of June July, please check out this topic for more information.

Aye, and thus a queen from France and a body guard from Wales brought forth the dynasty which was to take over once the houses of Lancaster and York had sufficiently butchered each other :p

There is a village called Wales in Southern Yorkshire, but that's not the place you mean, is it? It does not bear the native name Cymru. There are plenty of places called "Cambria" in the US, but that would be the latinized version of the native name.

It is a region, not a village. It is not called "Wales" or have anything to do with the stem root "walha" (eg "Wallonia"or"Wallachia/Tara Romanescu") AND, it is in England, not Wales, not Scotland, and definitely not the USA.

1. Free and general pardon to all participants in the Revolution and enemies of the father of the king to be (excepting a few of those responsible for the former king's execution).
2. A free parliament to give advice to the king.
3. This parliament was to decide about quarrels about lands that had switched owners during and because of the revolution.

Ooops I forgot to come up with the next question. Sorry about that.

Which English town holds Europe's largest Medieval fair and battle reenactment, which battle is commemorated there and what was the special significance of that particular battle?

PS: It is not Hastings.

Sandbach during the War of the Three Kingdoms, where the townsfolk were having a fair when the Scottish army came and the townsfolk captured prisoners?

Nope, the events at Sandbach took place in 17th century while the events at the town where this largest medieval reenactment is taking place were closer to the actual (late) middle ages.

The place I am talking about was in the news a few years ago due to floods in the region.

The battle which took place there included the only ever time that a Prince of Wales (as in heir to the English throne) was killed in battle. What is the name of the town where this happened?
