Many thanks to the anonymous commentator who has recently expressed his disapproval of one of my posts. Apparently, till now I haven't had a clue that Henry the Young King was famed for being tournament champion and patron, and - here let me quote - "too bad I have completely missed it" in the text entitled A Few Facts About Henry the Young King... Seriously. True - the title may have indicated that such an information would be included, but the afore-mentioned anonymous reader hasn't bothered to check it was a two-part post and that I have discussed Henry's brilliant career as a patron and participant in a few other separate posts as well. Here they are:
Plus, you are going to find a whole separate chapter on Henry and his tournament career in David Crouch's excellent Tournament.
Unfortunately, there are some bad news to share. I stopped counting how many days have passed since Henry the Young King biography by Matthew Strickland was out in the UK. The only thing I have been able to determine was: "The item out of stock". How can a book freshly published be already out of stock, I cannot tell. I guess I have no other choice, but to draw on my patience resources.
As for the basic facts about Henry, I have decided to re-post them here, all together, to everyone's satisfaction.
