Wars, Battles & Revolutions in History

 

 

   

Anglo-Norman Rebellion 1173-1174

The Anglo-Norman Rebellion is also called the Anglo-Norman War, or the Great Rebellion.
 


Who Fought in this Revolt?

Henry II, king of England from 1154-1189

vs.

his wife, his sons,
the kings of France and Scotland, and
others who joined for their respective reasons

 

Who Won the Great Rebellion? Who Lost?

Henry won.


Eleanor, Henry's wife, was imprisoned just in time to prevent her from unfolding her own stratagems. However, in Henry's eyes the woman had done enough already. Henry would blame her for his civil war and never forgive her.


Robert de Beaumont, the third earl of Leicester, sided with the sons.

William I the Lion, king of the Scots, allied against Henry because Henry Jr. had promised him Northumbria and Cumberland in exchange for military assistance.


 

This civil war broke out in April 1173.

In July 1173, Henry's troops attempted to take Leicester, but could only take the city, not the castle.

Henry met with his sons and Robert de Beaumont at the castle at Gisors in Northern France, in September 1173.

On September 26, 1173, Robert de Beaumont landed on the coast of Suffolk at Orwell and joined forces with Hugh I Bigod. Shortly after, Beaumont tried to take Dunwich but was driven back. Meanwhile Bigod took Ipswich.

Beaumont then besieged the castle at Haughley for four days, after which he was able to take the castle.

Shuffling westward, Beaumont encountered royal troops at Bury, so he returned to Framlingham. But de Lucy and Humphrey III de Bohun the arrived at Bury and Beaumont tried to get his hide out of the way.

On October 16, 1173, the teams clashed in the Battle at Fornham. Henry's troops won.

In July 1174, the castles of Leicester, Mountsorrerl, and Groby surrendered to the king.

On July 12, 1174, the Second Battle of Alnwick was fought, in which William I the Lion got himself captured.

In August 1174, Leicester and other rebels were taken prisoner and held at Caen and later at Falaise.

 

Henry and his sons decided to fight each other once more in 1183.
