Henry I 'Beauclerc' (1068-1135)

Henry I was born approximately in 1068.
His father was William I of England.
His mother was Matilda of Flanders.
He was King of England from 1100 to 1135.
He died December 1, 1135.

Henry I was nicknamed Beauclerc because of his love of learning.
At the age of about ten, Stephen of Blois was sent to be raised at the court of his uncle Henry I. King Henry made Stephen Count of Mortain.
Henry I married Edith of Scotland on November 11, 1100 at Westminster Abbey. Edith was the daughter of King Malcolm III of Scotland. Edith adopted the name Matilda because it was thought that the Norman barons might not respect a Queen with a Saxon name.
The loss of King Henry's son in the wreck of the White Ship left only a daughter, Matilda, to inherit.
Henry I's son was William the Aethling (William Aethling).
William was called the Saxon princely title to stress that his parents had united both the Saxon and Norman Royal Houses.

In 1115 Henry I gave the castle at Chepstow to the de Clare family.
Queen Matilda took an interest in the building of the first arched bridge in England.
The bridge was built over the River Lea at Stratford-le-Bow.

Henry I filled the ecclesiastical posts that had been kept vacant by his brother, King William II.

I always wondered why she changed her name. Thank you for that.

It would be interesting if they did find any remains that they could attach a positive identification to.
I thought Matilda was buried in Westminster Abbey? Was she later moved to Reading?

I think it might have been her heart or other organs buried at Reading Abbey church whilst her body was buried at Westminster Abbey.

Archaeologists begin hunt for remains of Henry I
via @TelegraphNews

Quote:
Surveyors have begun scouring the land around the ruins of Reading Abbey, as part of a search that could unearth the missing remains of King Henry I.

Investigators began using ground-penetrating radar on Friday, in a bid to outline the extent of the grounds of the ruined abbey, in a search that could see the body of a second English king discovered beneath a car park.

Henry, who died in 1135, reportedly from a “surfeit of lampreys”, is thought to have been buried alongside his second wife, Adeliza, under the high altar of the abbey, which was largely destroyed during Henry VIII’s dissolution of the monasteries.

Henry was the youngest of four sons. He was expected to become a bishop. How far did he receive a religious education to be a bishop?

Henry had been born in England. Did this factor endear him to the Saxon people?

Not really. He was still a Norman and very much his father's son.
