1154-1189 AD Henry II

Henry II suffered from quarrels with Thomas Becket and his own family.

Henry succeeded Stephen after invading England in 1153 to promote his claim after Stephen elbowed Henry's mother, Matilda, from the throne. As king, Henry ruled lands from Scotland to the Pyrenees. He extended these further through conquest, diplomacy and dynastic marriages; by 1170 he owned Western France, ruled parts of Ireland and had influence in Germany, Sicily and Castile.

At home, his first task was to crush the unruly elements and restore firm government. Using his talented chancellor Becket, Henry wasted little time restoring order to the judicial system. The Assize of Clarendon (1166) established procedures of criminal justice, establishing courts and prisons for those awaiting trial. In addition, the assizes gave fast and clear verdicts, enriched the treasury and extended the King's control.

Yet reforms provoked problems. In 1164 Henry reasserted his ancestral rights over the church. Now Archbishop of Canterbury, Becket refused to comply. An attempted reconciliation failed and, on returning from exile, Becket punished priests who had co-operated with Henry. The king, upon hearing the news, reportedly cursed, "Will no one rid me of this turbulent priest?" Four knights took his words literally and murdered Becket in Canterbury Cathedral in December 1170.

Almost overnight the martyred Thomas became a saint. Henry reconciled himself with the church, but royal control over the church changed little. Finally Henry did penance at Canterbury and, with Becket out of the way, most of the disputed points were soon sorted out.

Henry's four sons - Henry, Geoffrey, Richard and John - mistrusted each other and resented his policy of dividing land among them. In 1173 a rebellion erupted in England and Normandy over alleged favouritism, with further family disputes arising in 1181 and 1184. The King's attempt to find an inheritance for John led to opposition from both Richard and Philip II of France. Henry was defeated and forced to give way; news that John also had joined his enemies hastened the King's death near Tours in 1189.

Amazing find, this 13thC hammered silver coin should not exist as both sides are a short cross with no obv bust

You can however see that the obv side with the part HENRICVS REX legend had a bust originally but it was over struck again with the wrong short cross die.

What is more interesting the rev side has also been double struck if you look closely at **.ON. legend

What a unique coin

1158 -1189 AD Henry II hammered silver penny ' Tealby' cross and crosslet type

1.14g, 19mm x 20mm

n 1158 a monetary reform was introduced in England which was of sufficient importance for the contemporary chroniclers to record that 'a new money was made, which was the sole currency of the kingdom.' This coinage is notorious for its ugly appearance, bad craftsmanship and careless execution. It continued till 1180, and is named after a large hoard which was found at Tealby, Lincolnshire, in 1807

 

Many thanks for this very helpful information about the find, which I have recorded as EMC 2015.0073.

This is a coin of class F, and the mint might be Ipswich, as the last letter ofthe reverse inscription may be P in the Ipswich mint signature GIP.

Best wishes,

Martin

Richard I (1189-1199 ) shortcross coinage
Richard the Lion-Heart was famous for his exploits in the Third Crusade (1189-92), during his ten-year reign he spent only some six months in England.

The third son of Henry II, Richard possessed considerable political and military ability. However, like his brothers, he cared nothing for his family, joining them in the great rebellion against their father in 1173. In 1183 his brother Henry died, leaving Richard heir to the throne. With other lands in Normandy and Anjou, Henry II wanted him to give Aquitaine to his youngest brother, John. Richard refused and, in 1189, joined forces with Philip II of France against his father, hounding him to a premature death in July 1189.

As king, Richard wanted only to lead the crusade prompted by Saladin's capture of Jerusalem in 1187. In 1190 he departed for the Holy Land.

Richard arrived in June 1191 and the city fell the following month. In September his victory at Arsuf gave the crusaders possession of Joppa. Although he came close, Jerusalem, the crusade's main objective, eluded him. Moreover, fierce quarrels among the French, German and English contingents provided further troubles. After a year's stalemate, Richard made a truce with Saladin and started his journey home.

Sailing home, bad weather drove him ashore near Venice. He was captured and imprisoned by Duke Leopold before being handed over to the German emperor Henry VI, who ransomed him for the huge sum of 150,000 marks. The raising of the ransom was a remarkable achievement. Richard was released in February 1194.

He returned to England and was crowned for a second time. A month later he went to Normandy and his last five years were spent in warfare against Philip II. While besieging the castle of Châlus he was killed in 1199.

King John 1199-1216
The king who signed the Magna Carta in 1215, John was the son of Henry II. On his father's death in 1189 his brother, Richard, became king. John received titles, lands and money, but this was not enough. In October 1190 Richard recognized his nephew, Arthur, as his heir. Three years later, when Richard was imprisoned in Germany, John tried to seize control. He was unsuccessful and, when Richard returned in early 1194, was banished. The two were soon reconciled and, when Arthur was captured by Philip II in 1196, Richard named John heir.

Three years later Richard was dead and John was king. War with France was renewed, triggered by John's second marriage. While asked to mediate between the rival families of Lusignan and Angoulême, he married the Angoulême heiress Isabella, who had been betrothed to Hugh de Lusignan. The Lusignans were not amused. A rebellion broke out and John was ordered to appear before his overlord in France, Philip II. He never showed up; war followed.

By 1206, he had lost Normandy, Anjou, Maine and parts of Poitou. These failures were a damaging blow to John's prestige and he was determined to win them back. This required money. His government became increasingly ruthless and efficient in its financial administration. Taxes soared and he began to exploit his feudal rights ever more harshly.

This heavy taxation bred increasing baronial discontent. An unsuccessful plot to remove him made matters worse. Negotiations between John and his barons failed and civil war broke out in May 1215. When the rebels seized London, John was compelled to negotiate further and, on 19th June at Runnymede, he accepted the baronial terms embodied in the Magna Carta, which ensured feudal rights and restated English law.

This settlement was soon rendered impractical by the more stubborn barons and John's appeal to Pope Innocent. Innocent took his side and in the ensuing civil war John laid waste to the northern counties and the Scottish border. But he then had to face Prince Louis of France, who invaded at the barons' request. John continued to wage war vigorously but died, leaving the issues undecided. His death enabled a compromise peace that restored the rebels and the succession of his son Henry III
