Storyboard Text

  • Born in 1068, Prince Henry was the 3rd son of William the Conquerer.
  • My name is Prince Henry. That's my father, William the Conquerer. He's the King of England!
  • Henry's older brother, Robert, was the one who really should have taken the throne when his father died but, while Robert was abroad, Henry had himself crowned in 1100.
  • Robert won't mind. He's got Normandy...
  • My name is Robert, Earl of Normandy and heir to the English throne. I should be king.
  • I crown you Henry, King of England!
  • Back in the church, King Henry makes the strategic decision to marry the daughter of Malcom the 3rd of Scotland, giving him increased legitimacy.
  • I am Matilda. This marriage might give me more than my new husband, Henry; high status, power... don't tell him!
  • It's 1108. King Henry is playing matchmaker to his 8 year old daughter, Matilda, and Henry V, the future Roman Emperor.
  • Matilda, there's a nice future Roman Emperor who I've arranged for you to marry...
  • This is my son, William. I only have two children, but I'm worried that Henry might have more...
  • In 1120, King Henry's only son, Prince William, died when his ship, the White Ship, sunk.
  • Help! Help! My ship is sinking!
  • Who's going to rule England when Henry dies?
