Happy New Year!

We would like to wish a Happy New Year to all our readers. May 2016 be a good one, as it is certainly going to be for Henry the Young King, whose biography by Matthew Strickland is out on 18 May. We have written about it here. Before it is published though, we are going to discuss a few matters concerning Henry and his family. In the upcoming months we will host our friend and Eleanor of Aquitaine expert, Ulrik Kristiansen with a series of posts about Henry and his illustrious Lady Mother, we are going to take a closer look at Henry and Richard and determine whether the animosity between them has not been a myth to be dealt with, we are going to prove that Henry, not John, was the real Lackland and that Bertran de Born was not that bad as Dante chose to depict him in his Divine Comedy. These are but a few major topics we are going to focus on in the opening months of 2016. We will be happy if you come and join us :-)


  1. I'm really looking forward to the topics being discussed here - particularly the rivalry between Henry and Richard, and Henry as 'the real' Lackland! Happy New Year Kasia!

  2. Happy New Year both Kasia & young King Henry! I'm looking forward to the coming posts.
