The family feud in King Henry II of England's household is in full force during the Christmas season as Henry works to preserve his
Henry wants to ensure his kingdom will stay united after his death, but each of his three sons
want to rule, which almost guarantees revolution in the land.
Henry favors his youngest
son John, while his wife favors the eldest, Richard - while middle son

Henry even considers having another heir by his young mistress,
but that would only add to the contenders for the throne! Full of comic repartee,
Goldman makes history sparkle.
