King Henry II

Today’s spotlight is on my great grampy X 28, King Henry II of England.  During his reign, Great Grampy Henry introduced the first written legal textbook to England, fought with Thomas Becket, kind of got ex-communicated,  withstood political adversaries, rounded up Ireland and had a bunch of kids – some legitimate, some not.  He was played by Peter O’Toole in the play, THE LION IN WINTER.
