Storyboard Text

  • Hahaha!
  • You are now the Archbishop of Canterbury cathedral.
  • Thank you my dear friend!
  • I shall need some new clothes
  • I gave you this job, you must do what I say!
  • I will never go against the will of God! I'm leaving this place at once!
  • In 1154, Henry II and Thomas Becket are best friends, they hunted and got drunk together.
  • Agreed!
  • Now that you are back, Thomas, we shall work together to run this cathedral.
  • In 1162, Henry made Thomas the Archbishop of Canterbury Cathedral to gain more power.
  • Is there no one who will rid me of this troublesome priest?
  • Henry spoke about changing the church courts, but Thomas refused. After that they began to argued, and after one particularly nasty comment from Henry, Thomas left for France and was gone six years!
  • Thomas was finally back from France and he and Henry agreed to try to work together.
  • Thomas had excommunicated the bishops that had helped Henry run the Cathedral while he was away. When Henry found out, he was furious!
  • Your Magesty, I am sorry to inform you that Thomas Becket has been excommunicating all of the bishops.
  • The four nights set of to find Thomas Becket at the Cathedral, on 29th December 1170. When Henry had said "Is there no one who will rid me of this priest?" the knights had taken it literally so they had set off to kill Thomas Becket, and they did!
