  • Gloucester Cathedral, or the Cathedral Church of St Peter and the Holy and Indivisible Trinity, in Gloucester, England, stands in the north of the city near the river. It originated in 678 or 679 with the foundation of an abbey dedicated to Saint Peter (dissolved by King Henry VIII). The foundations of the present church were laid by Abbot Serlo (1072–1104). The cathedral, built as the abbey church, consists of a Norman nucleus (Walter de Lacy is buried there), with additions in every style of Gothic architecture. It is 420 feet (130 m) long, and 144 feet (44 m) wide, with a fine central tower of the 15th century rising to the height of 225 ft (69 m) and topped by four delicate pinnacles, a famous landmark. The nave is massive Norman with an Early English roof; the crypt, under the choir, aisles and chapels, is Norman, as is the chapter house. The crypt is one of the four apsidal cathedral crypts in England, the others being at Worcester, Winchester and Canterbury.

He mortgaged the Duchy of Normandy to his brother William II King of England in order to raise the money necessary to participate in the First Crusade (1096–1099). On returning from the crusade he was in the process of marrying a wealthy wife, when his brother William died, and his youngest brother Henry I seized the English throne.1 Robert invaded England to reclaim the throne in 1101 the resulting struggle between the two brothers lasted five years until Henry I won a decisive victory at the battle of Tinchebray in Normandy. Robert was captured and held prisoner at Devizes Castle and later at Cardif Castle where he was held until his death in 1134.
