Henry II (King) of ENGLAND

     `Curtmantle' (`Courtmanteau'); d' ANJOU (ANGEVIN); FitzEMPRESS; PLANTAGENET

    Note: Valiant soldier, tireless administrator, ``always gentle and calm in times of urgent peril,'' loved and was loved by his people. His reign was a sharp contrast to the anarchy under Stephen and led to the English Common Law. After his marriage to Eleanor he ruled England, Normandy, Aquitaine, Brittany, Poitou, Anjou, Maine and Guienne.
    Note: ``... the very first of [the Plantagenet] name and race, and the very greatest King that England ever knew, but withal the most unfortunate ... his death being imputed to those only to whom himself had given life, his ungracious sons...'' -- Sir Winston Churchill (1620-1688)
    Note: Desperately ill, waging war against his own son, he abandoned the struggle for life when he learned that John, his youngest son, had joined Richard: ``Let things go as they will; Shame, shame on a conquered King.''
