Thought this entry was a great bit of work; really interesting.
I found it because of reading the Ariana Franklin mysteries 'Mistress of the Art of Death' which were based during his reign; he's a side character, but interesting.
Then I realised I'd read 'A Hammer for Princes' by Cecelia Holland, and that's based about the beginning of his reign and he's a side character in that as well. Interestingly, they both make note of his famous rages...was that a real characteristic?
And I think the film A Lion in Winter was about him? Does anybody know?
