In 1154, Henry II seized the English throne after years of turmoil, dragging this turbulent nation out of the Dark Ages and putting it on course toward becoming the Britain we recognize today. Ruling for 300 years, the house of Plantagenet weathered the bloodletting of the Wars of the Roses, and brought equilibrium if not tranquility to England.
