Murphysboro Centuries, 12th secular

Stephen, 1135-1154
- nephew of Henry I, who took the throne even though Henry’s daughter, Matilda (married Germany’s Henry V), was supposed to inherit - the war between then lasted for 20 years and wrecked English prosperity - eventually a compromise was reached that Matilda’s son would inherit after Stephen
