Medieval Word of the Day

The Great War: A civil war that took place between Henry II and his sons in 1173-1174; also called the Great Rebellion and the Great Revolt

Henry II (father)

Henry the Younger (eldest son)                                                        Richard I (2nd son)

Count Geoffrey of Brittany (3rd son)                                                King John (4th son)

(John was actually too young to participate in this rebellion, but I thought you might enjoy seeing him anyway)
