The King found a likeable man named Thomas Becket. He decided that Thomas would be a good Chancellor to help control the lands.
Sadly, the old Archbishop of Canterbury died.
The King then made Thomas, who was already very helpful, the new Archbishop. But, Thomas just became more religious.
ore.The prince was to be crowned next. But instead of choosing Thomas Becket to do this job, Henry chose the Archbishop of York. Thomas was infuriated and killed the Archbishop of York. Henry became angry upon hearing the news, and started to argue and disagree withe Thomas even more.
The King soon lost his temper. He twisted his face and limbs, and often shouted WHO WILL RID ME OF THIS TROUBLESOME PRIEST?
Four knights decided to prove their loyalty, and struck down Thomas Becket in front of holy relics. It was now 1170, and Thomas Becket would not live to see 1171!
