I just found a book about sugar and political power (!), i'm reading it, and
will pass along info. It does say that in ~1228, one of the Henrys wanted to
get 3 pounds of Egyptian Sugar, "if such amount is available" from the
merchants at a fair. by 1288, the royal house used 6000 pounds per year! more
info as i read it, and i'll pass along the citations (book is at home, sorry)
