Henry II Of England
Henry II, also known as Henry Curtmantle, Henry FitzEmpress or Henry Plantagenet, was King of England from 1154 until his death in 1189. He was the first king of House Plantagenet. King Louis VII of France appointed him Duke of Normandy in 1150. Henri became Count of Anjou and Maine after the death of his father, Count Geoffroy V, in 1151. His marriage in 1152 to Aliénor d'Aquitaine, who recently canceled his marriage to Louis VII, made him the Duke of Aquitaine. He became the Earl of Nantes by treaty in 1185. By the age of 40, he controlled England, most of Wales, the eastern half of Ireland and the western half of France; an area that later became known as the Angevin Empire. At various times, Henry also controlled parts of Scotland, Wales and the Duchy of Brittany. At the age of 14, Henry actively participated in the efforts of his mother Mathilde, daughter of Henry I of England, to take over the British throne, which was later occupied by Stephen of Blois.
