    Was the murder of Archbishop Becket Henry II's fault?

    He didn't order his death, but then his saying "who will rid me of him?" was a flippant remark. He was a king that England needed after the Anarchy. His younger co-king son (Henry Young King) and his two younger full king sons (Richard Lionheart and John) were worse.
