25th Generation


30654604. Henry 3rd, King of England was born on 10 October 1206 in Winchester, Winchester, Hampshire, England. He "came to the throne" - see note in 1216. He "came of age" - see note in 1227. Died on 16 November 1272 at the age of 66 in Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, England. He was buried on 20 November 1272 in Westminster Abbey, Westminster, England. The dramatic minority of Henry III was a pivotal period in English history, for it determined that England would be ruled by Plantagenets rather than by the Capetian kings of France. When the nine-year-old son of King John (Henry III) came to the throne in 1216, England was in the middle of a civil war, with over half the country controlled by a French prince to whom the rebellious barons had offered the crown. The financial administration had completely broken down, the king was penniless, and much power lay in the hands of the great magnates. Yet when Henry came of age in 1227 his rule was unchallenged; the structure of government had been rebuilt and the crown's resources successfully reassembled. At the same time, Magna Carta came to be accepted by both king and barons as fundamental to the constitution, embodying notions of royal restraint and baronial consent that were to form a permanent part of English political thinking. Leonor Eleanor Queen of England and Henry 3rd, King of England were married on 14 January 1236 in Canterbury, Kent, England.
