The murder of the sainted Becket had earned him the condemnation oftall Christendom. And since discovering infidelity with Rosamund Clifford, his queen, Eleanor of Aquitaine, has dertemined to destory him. While his sons intrigue against him and each other, Henry's conscience leads him to make foolish political decision. The old eagle is under constant attack from three of the eaglets he had nutrured, and a forth waits in the wings for the moment of utter defeat to pluck out his eyes.
