called a prince over his posterity, holding
the keys of the patriarchal priesthood over the kingdom of God on earth, even the Church

  • Notes 
    • Descent from the English Crown- Richard I (1150-1199), the Lionhearted, King of England 1189-1199; third son of Henry II and Eleanor his wife, born at Oxford 8 September 1157. When a mere infant it was decided that he should inherit Aquitaine and he was betrothed to Alice or Alicia, youngest daughter of Louis VII of France. Since the eldest son of Henry II died in 1183, Richard succeeded to all the possessions of his father. He had taken the cross in 1187 on the news that Saldin had captured Jerusalem. Philip Augustus, King of France, had done the same, and in 1190 both started on the Third Crusade. Richard, in order to prepare suitably for this Crusade had borrowed and extorted money wherever possible. The Crusade proved a failure almost from the start, due to the lack of harmony between the two kings. Richard disagreed with the French King, refused to marry his sister, and later married Berengaria of Navarre on 12 May, 1191 on the Island of Cypus, where he halted on his way to Palestine. He showed great valor in the Holy Land, which made the name, Richard the Lionhearted, famous in romance. After Acre had been captured on 12 July 1191, Richard executed 2700 prisoners of war because the payment of ransom had been delayed. He quarreled bitterly with Philip Augustus, who went home. After spending months of indecisive contests against Saldin, he finally made a truce by which Jerusalem was left in the hands of the Sultan. On 9 October 1192 he set out on the return trip to England. On the way through the dominions of Leopold, Duke of Austria, he was seized by that Prince, who had been insulted by Richard while in the Holy Land and he was handed over to Emperor Henry VI who detained him as a captive. On 13 March 1194 he was again in England. Made war with Philip Augustus once more and was shot with an arrow while beseiging the Castle of Chaluz. During his reign he chose able administrators but taxed England heavily for his expeditions. He was a poet and well versed in the knightly accomplishments of his age. In the succeeding century, he became a hero of many legendary tales. ----- In the ten years of his reign he became, perhaps, one of the most ruthless, brutal and tyranical Kings of all English History. He had enemies everywhere and was killed by an arrow from the Castle Chalus in France, April 6, 1199, while warring there. Many believed it was by his own soldiers. No records of legal heirs were found. John 1167-1216 King of England, 3rd Plantagenet King, called "John the Lackland," youngest son of King Henry II, born Dec. 24, 1167-1216 King of England, 3rd Plantagenet King, called "John the Lackland," youngest son of King Henry II, born Dec. 24, 1167.
