Eleanor of Aquitaine, Queen of Henry II of England Featured Print

Eleanor of Aquitaine, Queen of Henry II of England

Eleanor of Aquitaine, Queen of Henry II of England. Eleanor (1122-1204) was one of the most powerful figures in 12th century Europe. She married Louis VII of France and accompanied him on the Second Crusade. After Louis became jealous of her and had the marriage annulled, Eleanor married the future Henry II of England in 1152. She bore Henry five sons, two of whom, Richard I and King John, went on to rule England. Henry believed Eleanor to have been involved in her sons rebellion against him in 1173 and had her confined until his death in 1189. She was actively involved in governing the kingdom in Richard I's absence in the Holy Land on the Third Crusade and secured his release from Austria by ransom. She remained politically active during John's reign before retiring to end her days at Fontevrault Abbey

Penance of Henry before the shrine of Thomas a Becket

King Henry II (1133-1189) doing penance before the shrine of Thomas a Becket. Henry ruled as King of England from 1154 to 1189. He was the first Plantagenet (or Angevin) King. St Thomas Becket (c1118-1170) was Archbishop of Canterbury from 1162 to 1170. He is venerated as a saint and martyr by both the Roman Catholic Church and the Anglican Church. He engaged in a conflict with King Henry II over the rights and privileges of the Church and was assassinated by followers of the king in Canterbury Cathedral. He is also commonly known as Thomas a Becket, although this form may not have been contemporary. From an ancient painting on glass, engraved in Carter's Specimens of Ancient Sculpture and Painting

Meeting of Stephen and Prince Henry at Wallingford, Oxfordshire, 1153 Featured Print

Meeting of Stephen and Prince Henry at Wallingford, Oxfordshire, 1153

Meeting of Stephen and Prince Henry at Wallingford, Oxfordshire, 1153. The middle of the 12th century in England was dominated by a civil war between the rival claimants to the throne, Matilda, the daughter of the prevoius King, Henry I, and Stephen, his nephew. In general, apart from a brief period in 1141 Stephen held the upper hand in the conflict and the throne. In 1153, Matilda's son, Henry of Anjou, invaded. After a standoff between Henry's and Stephen's armies at Wallingford, a compromise was reached whereby Henry would succeed Stephen as king after his death, Stephen's son and heir, Eustace, having already died. He was duly crowned Henry II, the first of the Angevin kings of England, in 1154
