William the Conquer had four sons (one of which died when he was young) The eldest son was called Robert, the middle child was called William Rufus and the youngest was called Henry.
As William lay dying he split up his kingdoms (Normandy and England) between his two eldest sons. Robert was given Normandy and William was England, his third son (Henry) only inherited money. It is still a mystery whether Henry murdered William when they were hunting ...
Within three days of William's death, Henry was crowned the king of England. Henry then married Matilda the daughter of Malcolm the third of Scotland.
In 1108 King Henry arranged for his daughter, Matilda, to marry the future Roman Emperor. This was in both men's interests, prestigious for King Henry and financially advantageous for Emperor Henry V.
In 1120 king Henry's only son died when his ship sank. That left Henry's only surviving child, Matilda to be his heir.
In late November 1135 Henry fell ill. He died on the first of December and was buried at Reading Abbey.
