Henry III

Henry III was the eldest son of John and succeeded his father when he was only nine years old. He governed the land with the help of various councellors. During the Barons' War, he and his son Edward were taken captive, until his son was able to escape and free him. Henry III was supposedly a very pious ruler, having named his son Edward after Edward the Confessor.
