    From today’s history post

    1189 Richard I (Richard the Lionheart) was crowned King of England.

    (1) Who was his father?

    (2) Who was his mother?

    (3) Who succeeded him and what relation to him was his successor?

    (4) Can you name his brothers?

    (5) Can you name his wife and what distinction does she hold as a Queen consort of England ?

    (1) Henry II of England who was also known as Henry FitzEmpress from his mother, or Henry Plantagenet after his father – the first of the Plantagenet kings who reigned for nearly three hundred years

    (2) Eleanor of Aquitaine – a very fascinating woman

    (3) He was succeeded by his younger brother John who usurped the throne from the rightful successor Arthur of Brittany, a boy of sixteen

    Eleanor of Aquitaine encouraged her grandson to take back his rightful inheritance but he was no match for John who took him prisoner and he was never seen again

    (4) Richards full brothers were William who died young, Henry the young king, Geoffrey, father of Arthur of Brittany and John – he had many half siblings as well

    (5) Berengaria of Navarre – who though Queen oi England never actually ever set foot on English soil (she may possibly have as dowager queen but never as queen)
