A Kings Qualities…

Henry I

The qualities an English King would be expected to have:

 

  • A military leader and strategist.
  • Leader of men by physical strength and word of mouth.
  • A law giver.
  • Religious head.
  • Producer of sons, heirs to reign after him.
  • A hunter.
  • He would be expected to marry for political reasons, and take a mistress, (King Henry I took many mistresses and fathered twenty plus illegitimate off-spring) whilst others have not taken a mistress.
