55 Henry III (reigned 1216-1272), John's son, was
only nine when he became king. By 1227, when he
assumed power from his regent, order had been
restored based on his acceptance of Magna Carta.
However, the king's failed campaigns in France, his
choice of foreigners as friends and advisers,
together with the cost of his scheme to make one of
his younger sons king of Sicily and help the Pope
against the Holy Roman Emperor, led to further
disputes with the barons and united opposition in
Church and State. The Provisions of Oxford
(1258) and the Provisions of Westminster (1259)
were attempts by the nobles to curb the king's
power, control appointments and set up an
aristocratic council.

Henry renounced the Provisions in 1264 and war
broke out. The barons under their leader, Simon de
Montfort, were initially successful, but Henry and
his son, Edward, finally defeated and killed de
Montfort at the Battle of Evesham in 1265. Royal
authority was restored by the Statute of
Marlborough (1267), in which the king also
promised to uphold Magna Carta and some of the
Provisions of Westminster. 
King Of England Henry, III
56 Henry IV (reigned 1399-1413) spent much of the
early part of his reign fighting to keep control of his
lands. Exiled for life by Richard II in 1399, Henry's
successful usurpation did not lead to general
recognition of his claim (he remained unrecognised
as King by Charles VI of France).

An outbreak of the plague in 1400 was
accompanied by a revolt in Wales led by Owen
Glendower. In 1403, Henry's supporters, the
Percys of Northumberland, turned against him and
conspired with Glendower - the Percys and the
Welsh were defeated by Henry at the Battle of
Shrewsbury. This victory was followed by the
execution of other rebels at York (including the
Archbishop in 1405). By 1408 Henry had gained
control of the country. Henry was dogged by illness
from 1405 onwards; his son played a greater role
in government (even opposing the King at times). In
1413, Henry died exhausted, in the Jerusalem
Chamber at Westminster Abbey. 
King Of England Henry IV, Of Bolingbrooke
57 Soon after his accession, Henry V (reigned
1413-22) laid claim to the French crown. Stern
and ruthless, Henry was a brilliant general who had
gained military experience in his teens, when he
fought alongside his father at the battle of
Shewsbury. In 1415, Henry set sail for France,
capturing Harfleur. His offer to the French Dauphin
of personal combat (Richard I and Edward III had
made similar offers in their time) was, like those of
his predecessors, refused; he went on to defeat the
French at the Battle of Agincourt. In alliance with
unreliable Burgundy, and assisted by his brothers
(the Dukes of Clarence, Bedford and Gloucester),
Henry gained control of Normandy in subsequent
campaigns. By the Treaty of Troyes (1420), he
gained recognition as heir to the French throne, and
married Charles VI's daughter Katherine.

Well educated, Henry had a particular interest in
liturgical music; he gave pensions to well-known
composers of his time, and a hymn of praise to
God, which he ordered sung after Agincourt, still
exists. However, Henry's success was short lived
and he died of dysentery in 1422 in Bois de
Vincennes, France. 
King Of England Henry V
58 Born at Windsor Castle, Henry VI (reigned
1422-61 and 1470-71) succeeded to the thrones
of England and France before the age of one, when
his father Henry V and his grandfather Charles VI
of France died within months of each other. Henry
was crowned King of England in 1429 and, in
1431, King of France. His minority was dominated
by his uncles Cardinal Beaufort and the Duke of
Gloucester (who opposed each other). Another
uncle, the Duke of Bedford, was Regent of France;
his death in 1435, combined with Burgundy
breaking the alliance with England, led to the
collapse of English rule in northern France. The
dual monarchy proved too difficult for the King and
England to maintain; the successes of the Dauphin
and Joan of Arc began to weaken England's grip
on its French possessions and Normandy was lost
in 1450. Henry's cultural patronage and genuine
interest in education (he founded Eton and King's
College, Cambridge) were outweighed by his
patchy and partisan interest in administration.
Failure in France and domestic unrest (for example,
the Cade rebellion of 1450) encouraged

In 1453 the King became ill and Richard, Duke of
York, was made Protector in 1454. The King
recovered in 1455, but civil war between the
Yorkist and Lancastrian factions broke out (the
Wars of the Roses). For the rest of his reign,
Henry's queen, Margaret of Anjou, was determined
to fight, rather than negotiate a compromise, for the
Lancastrian cause of her husband and son. Pitted
against Henry was the Duke of York, asserting his
legitimate claim to the throne as he was descended
by his mother from Edward III's second surviving
son (Henry VI was descended from Edward's third
surviving son). The Wars of the Roses were
therefore a struggle to decide if the succession
should keep to the male line or could pass through
females. The Duke of York was killed at the Battle
of Wakefield in 1460.

In 1461, his son Edward, an able commander,
defeated the Lancastrians at Mortimer's Cross, and
London opened its gates to the Yorkist forces;
Henry and his queen fled to Scotland. An
unsuccessful military campaigner, Henry was
captured and imprisoned in the Tower of London in
1465, but was restored to the throne in 1470. His
brief period of freedom ended after the Battle of
Tewkesbury in 1471 (in which his son Edward,
Prince of Wales was killed) when Edward IV
regained the throne, and Henry was put to death in
the Tower of London.

Pope Stephen II crowned CbDPepin IIIC/bD in 754, and CbDPepin'sC/bD army protected the Pope from the Lombards. CbDPepinC/bD donated territory to the Pope, which became the foundation of the Papal States. Among the children of CbDPepin IIIC/bD and CbDGersvindC/bD was CbDCharlemagne.

72 King of Franks Ratherius
73 Edward III's son, the Black Prince, died in 1376.
The King's grandson, Richard II (reigned
1377-99), suceeded to the throne aged 10, on
Edward's death. In 1381 the Peasants' Revolt
broke out and Richard, aged 14, bravely rode out
to meet the rebels at Smithfield, London. Wat
Tyler, the principal leader of the peasants, was
killed and the uprisings in the rest of the country
were crushed over the next few weeks (Richard
was later forced by his Council's advice to rescind
the pardons he had given). Highly cultured, Richard
was one of the greatest royal patrons of the arts;
patron of Chaucer, it was Richard who ordered the
technically innovative transformation of the Norman
Westminster Hall to what it is today. (Built between
1097 and 1099 by William II, the Hall was the
ceremonial and administrative centre of the
kingdom; it also housed the Courts of Justice until

Richard's authoritarian approach upset vested
interests, and his increasing dependence on
favourites provoked resentment. In 1388 the
'Merciless Parliament' led by a group of lords
hostile to Richard (headed by the King's uncle,
Gloucester) sentenced many of the King's
favourites to death and forced Richard to renew his
coronation oath. The death of his first queen, Anne
of Bohemia, in 1394 further isolated Richard, and
his subsequent arbitrary behaviour alienated people
further. Richard took his revenge in 1397, arresting
or banishing many of his opponents; his cousin,
Henry of Bolingbroke, was also subsequently
banished. On the death of Henry's father, John of
Gaunt (a younger son of Edward III), Richard
confiscated the vast properties of his Duchy of
Lancaster (which amounted to a state within a
state) and divided them among his supporters.

Richard pursued policies of peace with France (his
second wife was Isabella of Valois); Richard still
called himself king of France and refused to give up
Calais, but his reign was concurrent with a 28 year
truce in the Hundred Years War. His expeditions to
Ireland failed to reconcile the Anglo-Irish lords with
the Gaels. In 1399, whilst Richard was in Ireland,
Henry of Bolingbroke returned to claim his father's
inheritance. Supported by some of the leading
baronial families (including Richard's former
Archbishop of Canterbury), Henry captured and
deposed Richard. Bolingbroke was crowned King
as Henry IV. Risings in support of Richard led to
his murder in Pontefract Castle; Henry V
subsequently had his body buried in Westminster

76 Though charming, attractive and (when required) a
brave warrior, Stephen (reigned 1135-54) lacked
ruthlessness and failed to inspire loyalty. He could
neither control his friends nor subdue his enemies,
despite the support of his brother Henry of Blois
(Bishop of Winchester) and his able wife Matilda of
Boulogne. Henry I's daughter Matilda invaded
England in 1139 to claim the throne, and the
country was plunged into civil war. Although
anarchy never spread over the whole country, local
feuds were pursued under the cover of the civil
war; the bond between the King and the nobles
broke down, and senior figures (including Stephen's
brother Henry) freely changed allegiances as it
suited them.

In 1141, Stephen was captured at Lincoln and his
defeat seemed certain. However, Matilda's
arrogant behaviour antagonised even her own
supporters (Angevins), and Stephen was released
in exchange for her captured ally and illegitimate
half-brother earl Robert of Gloucester. After the
latter's death in 1147, Matilda retired to Normandy
(which her husband, the Count of Anjou had
conquered) in 1148. Stephen's throne was still
disputed. Matilda's eldest son Henry, who had
been given Normandy by his father in 1150 and
who had married the heiress Eleanor Duchess of
Aquitaine, invaded England in 1149 and again in
1153. Stephen fought stubbornly against Henry;
Stephen even attempted to ensure his son Eustace's
succession by having him crowned in Stephen's
lifetime. The Church refused (having quarrelled with
the king some years previously); Eustace's death
later in 1153 helped lead to a negotiated peace (the
treaty of Wallingford) under which Henry would
inherit the throne after Stephen's death. 
King Of England Stephen, Of Blois
77 Earl of Huntingdon. Waltheof II, Of Huntingdon
78 The victory of William I, 'the Conqueror' (reigned
1066-1087) at Hastings and his subsequent
coronation in Westminster Abbey on Christmas
Day 1066 did not give him complete control of
England. Remaining resistance was, however,
severely crushed and castles were built to control
the country (including a fortress on the site of
Windsor Castle, and the White Tower at the
Tower of London). The lands of defeated Saxon
nobles were given to William's followers in return
for military service by a certain number of knights,
so that the tenants' foremost obligation was
allegiance to the king. This firmly established the
feudal system. In 1086, William commissioned the
Domesday Book, to record land holdings for the
assessment of taxes and other dues. William spent
long periods in Normandy to maintain his authority
there, dealing with rebellions and French invasions.
William died in 1087 leaving Normandy to his
eldest son, Robert, and England to his second son,
William II Rufus (reigned 1087-1100).
