    Notes 
    • Encyclopedia Britannica Online, article titled 'Henry the YoungKing:''also called HENRY FITZHENRY, second son of King Henry II of EnglandbyEleanor of Aquitaine; he was regarded, after the death of hiselderbrother, William, in 1156, as his father's successor inEngland,Normandy, and Anjou. 'In 1158 Henry, only three years of age,was betrothed to Margaret,daughter of Louis VII of France and his secondwife, on condition thatMargaret's dowry would be the Vexin, the borderregion betweenNormandy (then held by England) and France. Henry II tookadvantage ofPope Alexander III's political difficulties to secure thePope'spermission for the children to be married in 1160. On June 14,1170,the young Henry was crowned king (theoretically to rule inassociationwith his father) at Westminster by Archbishop Roger of York.York'sofficiation, usurping a prerogative of the archbishop ofCanterbury,exacerbated the dispute between the latter, namely, ThomasBecket, andHenry II, which ended with Becket's murder six months later.Crownedagain on Aug. 27, 1172 (this time with Margaret), the YoungKingreceived no share of his father's power. (He was neverthelesscalledby contemporaries and by certain later chroniclers King HenryIII.) 'With his mother and his brothers Richard (the future Richard I)andGeoffrey, he nearly overthrew Henry II in 1173. Forgiven forthisrevolt, he intrigued further against his father with Louis VII.In1182-83 he waged war against Richard over Poitou, and he waspreparingto fight Richard again when he died in France of dysentery.'The Young King was so popular that the people of Le Mans andRouenalmost went to war for the custody of his body, and in hismother'shereditary lands he was immortalized in the 'Lament for theYoungKing' by the troubadour Bertran de Born.'
