About Henry Plantagenet

Henry of England (13 July 1267, Windsor Castle - 14 October 1274, Merton, Surrey) was the fifth child and second son of Edward I of England by his first wife Eleanor of Castile.

He was an older brother of (among others) Eleanor of England, Joan of Acre, Alphonso, Earl of Chester, Margaret Plantagenet, Elizabeth of Rhuddlan and Edward II of England. He was also an older, paternal half-brother of Thomas of Brotherton, 1st Earl of Norfolk and Edmund of Woodstock, 1st Earl of Kent.

At the time of his birth, his paternal grandfather Henry III of England was still reigning. His father Prince Edward was the Heir apparent since his own birth in 1239. Second-in-line for the throne was his eldest son John. John was a year senior to Henry who thus became the third-in-line heir for the throne at birth.

On 3 August 1271, John died in the custody of their paternal granduncle Richard, 1st Earl of Cornwall. His death left Henry the eldest surviving child of Prince Edward and second-in-line heir to the throne of England.

Henry III died on 16 November 1272. Edward became the new King of England and Henry his heir apparent. He would remain heir for the first two years of the new reign. He died of natural causes and was replaced as heir by his younger brother Alphonso. He was buried at Westminster Abbey.
