History / The Tudor Period
English term or phrase: order of Tudor yobs
Greetings,

I remember hearing of an order of Tudor yobs (badly-behaved youths), like the seventeenth century “Tityre Tus” and the twentieth century “Teddy Boys” or “Skinheads” etc., but can't remember what they were known as – please could you help?

All the best,

English translation:The Muns
Explanation:
I found the following text:

Several dynasties of these tyrants had, since the Restoration, domineered over the streets. The 'Muns' and 'Tityre Tus' had given place to the 'Hectors,' and the 'Hectors' had been recently succeeded by the 'Scourers.' At a later period arose the 'Nicker,' the 'Hawcubite,' and the yet more dreaded name of 'Mohawk,'

So the Muns were obviously in the Restoration period, which as I have just found out was in the 17th century, after the Tudors. But the text also implies that it all began with the Muns - so maybe that's the name you were looking for?
