The ''Curia Regis'' (or ''King's Court'') was a form of early Medieval Council which provided advisement to The Royalty of France. These Advisors were both Noble and Landed Gentry, as only they were seen as being able to advise The King on matters of Law and enforcement of His will. Often The Curia Regis could meet and enforce The King's Will based on His prior wish (thru their interpretation). In this form, they were a form of early French ''Civil Government''. Established in 1066 (and used to establish a similar style in England by The Normans after their conquest), The Curia would continue (in name until around 1215 AD). In England, much of it's establishment would be merged into The King's ''Privy Council'' - which would continue until the 17th Century AD.
