14 June 1170: Henry Crowned King at Westminster Abbey
On this day 844 years ago, our Henry, aged fifteen, was crowned king at Westminster Abbey by Roger of Pont-l'Eveque, the Archbishop of York. Henry, since then called the Young King, was to be the only English monarch crowned in his father's lifetime. Last year I wrote a post about the coronation and the surrounding events here. I don't mean to brag, but it's a good one, so if you have a minute or two, check the link out :-)
Also recently my changes to the Polish version of Henry the Young King Wikipedia article have been accepted and introduced, so I'm very happy for my Liege Lord. With the minor, but necessary corrections made, I have also written the entirely new section entitled "Młody Król w literaturze" ["The Young King in Fiction"], mentioning Devil's Brood by Ms Sharon Kay Penman and The Greatest Knight by Ms Elizabeth Chadwick. The article can be found here.
