Than I had an idea, I could make Thomas Archbishop of Canterbury! He will then do what I want!
The church did not want to be controlled by my courts! This made me mad!
Our friendship will turn to hate.
I want you to become Archbishop of Canterbury.
When he was younger, Henry was best friends with Thomas Becket. The two of them would live wildly, drinking, gambling and more.
I am furious!! I feel betrayed!
Henry was unhappy that he could not control the church that he come up with a cunning plan .........
Come back to England Thomas, let's start again.
Sure enough Henry made his friend Archbishop of Canterbury, the most powerful religious position in the country!
Will no one rid me of this turbulent priest!?!?
However, things soon started to go wrong! Thomas took the role of Archbishop very seriously and he became very religious. Soon he wouldn't make the changes that Henry wanted!
The two old friends argued furiously amongst themselves and things became so bad that Thomas left for France. For six long years the old friends would not talk. However, Henry decide to try and patch things up.
Becket immediately excommunicated any Bishops who had been appointed by the King when he was in France. Bewildered and angry, Henry shouted out his frustration over dinner one day.
