Henry II 'Curtmantle' d'Anjou, King of England1

Consanguinity Index=0.13%
     Henry II 'Curtmantle' d'Anjou, King of England was born on 5 March 1133 at Le Mans, France.2 He was the son of Geoffrey V Plantagenet, Comte d'Anjou et Maine and Matilda 'the Empress' of England. He married Eleanor, Duchesse d'Aquitaine, daughter of Guillaume X, Duc d'Aquitaine and Eleanor Châtellérault de Rochefoucauld, on 18 May 1152 at Bordeaux Cathedral, Bordeaux, Dauphine, France.2 He was also reported to have been married on 14 May 1152. He died on 6 July 1189 at age 56 at Chinon Castle, Chinon, Berri, France, from a fever.3 He was buried at Fontevraud Abbey, Fontevraud, France.3
     He and Rosamund de Clifford were associated.4 He was also known as Henry FitzEmpress. He gained the title of Comte de Maine in 1151. He gained the title of Comte de Touraine in 1151.2 He succeeded to the title of 11th Comte d'Anjou on 7 September 1151.2 He succeeded to the title of 13th Duc de Normandie on 7 September 1151.2 As a result of his marriage, Henry II 'Curtmantle' d'Anjou, King of England was styled as Duc d'Aquitaine on 18 May 1152.2 He succeeded to the title of King Henry II of England on 25 October 1154.5 He was crowned King of England on 19 December 1154 at Westminster Abbey, Westminster, London, England, and styled 'Rex Angliae, Dux Normanniae et Aquitainaie et Comes Andegavaie.6'
     He was the First of the Angevin kings. He was a powerful thickset, red-haired, freckled man. The name is derived from his emblem, the broom shrub, which bears the botanical name Planta Genesta later corrupted to Plantagenet. He spent much of his reign in France but did not neglect matters at home, carrying out important improvements in the legal system including widespread use of juries, and he did his best to ensure that justice was fair to all. He appointed his close friend Thomas Becket as Archbishop of Canterbury but once installed, Becket continually opposed him, particularly regarding the necessary reformation of the ecclesiastical courts. The King had the Pope's backing and he called a meeting of the Great Council at Clarendon after which the Constitutions of Clarendon were issued. Shortly after, Becket fled the country. He returned in 1170 but promptly fell out with King. Henry was furious and cried out 'Who will avenge me of this turbulent priest!'. Four knights who heard him mistook Henry's meaning and straightway rode off to Canterbury and on Tuesday, 29 December 1170 murdered Becket in the Cathedral. He has an extensive biographical entry in the Dictionary of National Biography.7

Richard Coeur de Lion2
     Richard I 'Coeur de Lion', King of England was born on 8 September 1157 at Beaumont Palace, Oxford, Oxfordshire, England.1 He was the son of Henry II 'Curtmantle' d'Anjou, King of England and Eleanor, Duchesse d'Aquitaine. He and Alys Capet were engaged.2 He married Berengaria de Navarre, daughter of Sancho VI, Rey de Navarre and Sanchia de Castilla, on 12 May 1191 at Chapel of St. George, Limassol, Cyprus.1 He died on 6 April 1199 at age 41 at Chalus, Limousin, France.3 He was buried at Fontevraud Abbey, Fontevraud, France.3
     He gained the title of Duc d'Aquitaine in 1172.1 He succeeded to the title of King Richard I of England on 6 July 1189.1 He was crowned King of England on 3 September 1189 at Westminster Abbey, Westminster, London, England, and styled 'Rex Anglaie, Dux Normanniae et Aquitainaie et Comes Andegavaie.4'
     He spent his youth in France training as a soldier and later fought his father, Henry II, in England. In fact, he spent only six months of his reign in England. He married Berengaria of Naverre when on a Crusade in 1191. During this Crusade he captured Cyprus. On his way home he was taken prisoner in Austria and held to ransom. There is a nice legend that his faithful minstrel Blondel went from castle to castle strumming the notes of his master's favourite melody. Upon reaching the place of the King's imprisonment he was delighted to hear the answering response from his master's harp. Richard spent only two short periods of his reign in England, the rest of time he was away on Crusades or in France. He was impetuous, brave and forgiving but had no political aptitude. He has an extensive biographical entry in the Dictionary of National Biography.5
