The Last Norman King..

Published on January 27, 2019 at 10:29 PM

I added Stepen and his Wife ( another) Matilda of Boulogne..

Because of the unwillingness to folow a female leader the barons of England plunged their people in civil war known as the Anarchy, rightfull heir was Empress matilda but she was still in Normandy at the time of her fathers dead, Stephen crowned himself king saying the old king promised him that on his deathbed ..  and so a long powerstruggle began..

 

I will later add a Attachments page about matilda and her husbands.. because she never was a queen of England .. neither was her second husband Geoffrey of Anjou .. but their son Henry was to be the first Plantagenet king..
