King Henry the V

In 1125 AD Henry V issued this

''In this year before Christmas, King Henry sent from
Normandy to England and gave instructions that all moneyers
be deprived of their members. Bishop Roger of Salisbury
commanded them all to assemble at Winchester by Christmas
When they came they were taken one by one, and each
deprived of the right hand and testicles below. All this was
done in 12 days between Christmas and Epiphany, and was
entirely justified because they had ruined the whole country
by the magnitude of their fraud, which they paid for in

(Quoted from the Laud Chronicle, one of the last of the
Anglo-Saxon Chronicles and translated from Middle English.)
