Strong differences between Henry and his father were accentuated by the rivalry between Henry’s mistress, Diane de Poitiers, and the king’s, Anne, Duchess d’Étampes, as well as by Henry’s continuing support of the constable Anne de Montmorency, who had lost favorwith the crown.

Henry II, King of England, ruled between 1154 and 1189 CE. After the civil war between King Stephen of England and Henry’s mother Empress Matilda (l. 1102-1167CE), he was able to negotiate his throne. Henry would begin a new ruling dynasty, the Angevins-Plantagenets, and he would rule until 1189 CE, forming the largest ’empire’ in western Europe and establishing himself as one of England’s greatest ever kings. The murder of Thomas Becket, his archbishop and chancellor, in 1170 CE, and his rebellions by his sons at his reign’s end were two black marks that became difficult to forget. Henry’s son Richard I, also known as Richard the Lionheart (r. 1189-1199CE) and his second son King John (r. 1299-1216CE), succeeded him.
Henry was determined that he would take England over and allow his daughters-in law and son to rule the three nations. He spiraled into madness, and was willing to do whatever it’s taking to accomplish this goal. It had become clear to him that he must kill Francis to get all three kingdoms for himself. It was not safe for the nation to have an insane king, so his family decided to execute him. His madness was further exacerbated by several failed plots against him. In The Joust Francis, disguised as his father, fought him and inflicted an injury on him that eventually caused an infection. He was finally killed in Slaughter of Innocence.
