    • Henry, the nine-year old son of King John, became king in 1216. For th
      e next decade or so, England was more or less governed by his advisors
      . When Henry grew to manhood he had troubles with the barons just lik
      e his father did. Simon de Montfort was the earl of Leicester and mar
      ied to Henry's sister. In 1258, Montfort led a baronial movement agai
      st the king. The Provisions of Oxford were imposed on Henry III, rest
      icting the king's power. The king ruled with the consent of a counci
      l and needed to call Parliament three times a year. Henry began to ign
      ore the provisions. So, Montfort went to France. The earl returned i
      1263 and started making some trouble. The barons won an important ba
      ttle in 1264. But in 1265, they were defeated at the battle of Evesha
      m by the future Edward I. Montfort was brutally mutilated and killed
      . He became a martyr and a cult sprang up around him. During Montfort
      's rebellion, the barons imprisoned Peter of Aigueblanche, the bisho
      p of Hereford. Elizabeth Hallam states that Henry was pious and hones
      t, but he also had the Plantagenet temper of his forefathers. This kin
      g was also supposed to be stupid and not a realist. Source: Wright, A
