THE LION OF JUSTICE
The death of The Conqueror left three sons
to inherit his power and his wealth. Normandy
for Robert, England for Rufus and for Henry,
the youngest, five thousand pounds of silver.
The three were natural rivals. The feckless
Robert lost Norman dukedom in an orgy
of impulsive extravagance. Red-haired Rufus
scandalized the court with his perverse
sexuality and contempt for the Church.
And Henry-cleverest of all-awaited his
chance to fulfill his father's prophecy and
assume the mantle of The Lion of Justice.
