Henry II., called Curtmantle (5 March 1133 – 6 July 1189) ruled as King of England (1154–1189), Count of Anjou, Duke of Normandy, Duke of Aquitaine, Duke of Gascony, Count of Nantes, Lord of Ireland and, at various times, controlled parts of Wales, Scotland and western France. Henry was the first of the House of Plantagenet to rule England and was the great-grandson of William the Conqueror.
Who is able to read German (or willing to give babelfish or something like that a try and probably have a damn good laugh) can read a longer article on him on my blog: Henry II. Plantagenet
