Henry II spent more than 20 years of his three-and-a-half decade reign abroad.
Henry II embarked on a campaign of destroying what were known as adulterine castles.
These castles were the fortresses built throughout the countryside without royal consent by barons taking advantage of a weak king.
In 1185 Henry II was asked to be the ruler of the kingdom of Jerusalem. He declined.
In December 1168, Eleanor held her first independent Christmas court at Portiers.
In Kings & Queens of Great Britain, David Soud wrote:

Henry II enjoyed good relations with the Church for the first few years of his reign, not least because the pope at the time, Adrian IV was the only Englishman ever to sit on the papal throne.
In Kings and Queens of Great Britain, David Soud wrote:

He (Henry II) was surrounded by pomp, yet he dressed simply, often in riding clothes, and he was not above dropping in on a local tavern for a few flagons of ale -- a practice that further endeared him to the commonfolk.
In Queens Consort, Lisa Hilton wrote:

Richard was invested as Duke of Acquitaine in 1170, a very satisfying development for Eleanor, who used the occasion to demonstrate her own power and augment it by her association with the future duke. At the cathedral of St. Hilaire on 31 May, Eleanor wore the coronet of Acquitaine. The coronet was placed briefly on Richard's head, then substituted with a plainer silver circlet: Eleanor was making it clear that she was still in control.

What a scheming, quarrelsome bunch Henry and Eleanor's children were, egged on by their mother and made worse by Henry's hair trigger temper ! We read less about the daughters than the sons of course, and the piece about Joanna was interesting.

The Assize of the Forest was King Henry II's 1184 formulation of laws regulating the forest. The King commanded that no tanner or bleacher of hides shall dwell in his forests outside of a borough.

Pope Adrian IV (in office from 1154 to 1159) gave King Henry II the right to rule Ireland. Why would the Pope have to give the monarch the right to rule another country?

On May 27, 1152 Eleonor of Aquitaine revoked a grant of the forest of Le Sevre to the abbey of Saint-Maixent. She had co-signed this grant with her first spouse, King Louis VII in 1146. Eleonor regranted the grant in her own right.

In a series of treaties, King Henry II was recognized as a feudal overlord. Henry had power over Scotland under the Treaty of Falaise signed in 1174 with King William of Scots. Henry was overlord of Ireland under the Treaty of Windsor in 1175.
