'His power stretched from the furthest parts of the British Isles almost to the Mediterranean. Yet it was to prove an ephemeral wonder'
Ruler of a vast European empire and one of the most dynamic, learned men ever to reign in England, Henry II was brought down by his catastrophic relationship with his archbishop Thomas Becket, his rebellious sons Richard and Geoffrey, and his wife Eleanor of Aquitaine. This is a vivid account of a king whose desire for control would destroy him.
