    • He was the first of the Angevin Kings.

      Reigned for 35 years. He ruled an empire that stretched from theTweed to the
      Pyrenees. In spite of frequent hostitilties with the French King his own
      family and rebellious Barons (culminating in the great revolt of 1173-74) and
      his quarrel with Thomas Becket, Henry maintained control over his possessions
      until shortly before his death. His judicial and administrative reforms which
      increased Royal control and influence at the expense of the Barons were of
      great constitutional importance. Introduced trial by Jury. Dukeof Normandy.

      He built: Chester, London, Westminster Abbey, Sutton at Home,Walsingham and Worcester.
