  • This is how i became king
  • Henry I, also known as Henry Beauclerc, was king . This is how it happened:
  • Within three days of his older brothers death, Henry became the new King of England. Henry had arguments with his other brother Robert and defeated him, imprisoning him until his death.
  • Matilda, Henry's daughter, was married off to Emperor Henry V, in 1108. Matilda was then crowned the Emperor's queen, in 1110.
  • In 1120 Matilda's brother and the son and heir died when a ship sank with no survivors. Henry was very upset and worried for the future of his dynasty because the rest of his sons' could not rule.
  • Henry's dynasty was saved when his daughter, Matilda, came back to England when her husband died. Henry then proceeded to declare Matilda his heir.
  • Late November 1135, Henry I fell gravely ill. This, according to a chronicler, was because he ate many Lampreys, a type of eel.
