Minutes of the Curia


The king demanded from his tenants-in-chief that they should meet in his curia regis. So William I had his thrice yearly crown-wearings, attended by "all the rich men over all England, archbishops and bishops, abbots and earls, thegns and knights" (Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, ad ann, 1087). So too, in France there was the cour du roy, dating from the earliest Capetian times, the court of the king's demesne or immediate tenants; at this royal court, whether in England or in France, all the tenants-in-chief, at any rate in the days of the full force of feudalism, were obliged to attend. The same court existed in the Holy Roman Empire and was of great importance, at least till the death of Henry V (Bryce, Holy Roman Empire, London, 1904, viii, 120-129).

The Curia Regis, literally "Royal Court," is the official advisory body to the Crown, charged with the duty to consult, deliberate, and advise on all matters involving the governance of the kingdom, and particularly on Kingdom Law. The Curia Regis has existed as an advisory body since the early days of the Midrealm, and is provided for in Kingdom Law.

From Kingdom Law, Section II-101: The Crown shall have power to change these laws only after obtaining sage counsel from the Curia Regis as herein defined, provided that said changes do not in any way conflict with any part of the laws of the modern governmental institutions having authority over those areas within which the Middle Kingdom is said to hold sway. These changes must be publicly proclaimed at Court and published in the Pale before becoming law.
