Events and Trends

May 27, 1199 Friday - John I Lackland (1167-1216) became King of England upon the death of his older brother Richard the Lion Hearted. His coronation took place in Westminster Abbey. The Angevin Empire he had inherited stretched from the Pyrenees to the Scottish border (the Tweed). John was the first Plantagenet to reside in England. The name Lackland came from his not being a first son and thus would lack land.
