Curia Regis


Obs. The advisors of the King also called 'Plenary Curia,' 'High Curia,' or 'Haute Curia.'

An English court, which assumed this name, during the reign of Henry II. It was Curia or Aula Regis because it was held in the great hall of the king's palace; and where the king, for some time, administered justice in person. But afterwards, the judicial power was more properly entrusted to the king's judges. The judges who sat in this court were distinguished by the name of justices or justiciaries. Besides these, the chief justiciary, the stewart of all England, the chancellor, the chamberlain, and the treasurer also took part in the judicial proceedings of this court.
