Medieval King toby jug produced by Bairstow Manor Pottery of Hanley, England, circa 1985. A medieval king was the figurehead of the state during medieval times. The authority of a medieval king was relatively less during the early medieval times because of the influence of the Church and the authority of the Pope. However, as the early medieval times gave way to middle medieval times, the authority of the medieval king continued to increase and he held absolute power over his subjects. This toby jug is a part of the Staffordshire Character Jugs Series.
