On 28 February 1155 England welcomed the arrival of a new prince in the family of Henry II and his queen, Eleanor of Aquitaine. The son born that day was to go down in history as Henry the Young King. I sincerely do hope that with your help we will make the month of February absolutely Henry-centric. Here are a few of my posts I would like to recommend before I share my new Henry the Young King text with you.
Brief biography of our Liege.
A Lovely Place of Sin or what did Henry's contemporaries say about their young king?
Henry's knighting ceremony (do you really know who belted him with the sword of knighthood?)
I would also like to recommend my new blog called Polish Bits and Bobs (as you know Henry the Young King's scribe comes from Poland). It's about all things Polish. If you have time and inclination I would be happy to welcome you here.
