Henry III of England's Timeline

1207
October 1, 1207
Winchester Castle, Winchester, Hampshire, England

Born in the old Anglo-Saxon city of Winchester (Hampshire).

1216
October 28, 1216
Age 9
Gloucester Cathedral
1216
Age 8
1216
Age 8
London, Greater London, United Kingdom

Henry was the first child king in England since the reign of Æthelred the Unready.
The coronation was a simple affair, attended by only a handful of noblemen and three bishops. In the absence of a crown a simple golden band was placed on the young boy's head, not by the Archbishop of Canterbury (who was at this time supporting Prince Louis of France, the newly-proclaimed king of France) but by another clergyman -- either Peter des Roches, Bishop of Winchester, or Cardinal Guala Bicchieri, the Papal legate

1220
May 17, 1220
Age 12
Westminster Abbey
May 17, 1220

London, Greater London, United Kingdom

A second coronation was ordered by Pope Honorius III who did not consider that the first had been carried out in accordance with church rites.

1236
January 14, 1236
Age 28
Canterbury Cathedral, Canterbury, Kent, England

Eleanor had never seen Henry prior to the wedding at Canterbury Cathedral and had never set foot in his kingdom. Edmund Rich, Archbishop of Canterbury, officiated. She was dressed in a shimmering golden gown which was tightly-fitted to the waist, and then flared out in wide pleats to her feet. The sleeves were long and lined with ermine. After riding to London the same day where a procession of citizens greeted the bridal pair, Eleanor was crowned queen consort of England in a ceremony at Westminster Abbey which was followed by a magnificent banquet with the entire nobility in full attendance.

1239
June 17, 1239
Age 31
Westminster Palace, London, Middlesex, England

Born in the newer capital of Westminster. Christened June 22, 1239 in Westminster, Middlesex, England.

August 9, 1239
Age 31

Henry confronted Montfort, called him an excommunicant and threatened to imprison him in the Tower of London. "You seduced my sister," King Henry said, "and when I discovered this, I gave her to you, against my will, to avoid scandal." Simon and Eleanor fled to France to escape his wrath.
