King Henry II (reigned 1154- 1189). Henry of Anjou, an exceptionally able King, found England devastated by civil war, and left it prosperous and law - abiding. A brilliant soldier, he extended his French Dominions until he ruled most of France. He found his match in Thomas Becket, who challenged the royal control of the Church. From a Player's cigarette card based on the engraving by G Vertue; British Museum.
