Stephen (1135-54 AD)
Stephen was the grandson of William the Conqueror and about half-dozen years older than his cousin and rival for the throne, Matilda (daughter of Henry I). After his father's death in 1102, Stephen was raised by his uncle, Henry I. Henry was genuinely fond of Stephen, and granted his nephew estates on both sides of the English Channel. By 1130, Stephen was the richest man in England and Normandy.
Stephen's reign was one of the darkest chapters in English history. He was basically a good man - well respected by the barons and closely tied to the church - but possessed a conciliatory character and limited scope of kingship. Stephen had promised to recognize his cousin Matilda as lawful heir, but like many of the English/Norman nobles, was unwilling to yield the crown to a woman. He received recognition as king by the papacy through the machinations of his brother Henry of Blois, Bishop of Winchester, and gathered support from the barons. Matilda was in Anjou at the time of Henry's death and Stephen, in a rare exhibition of resolve, crossed the Channel and was crowned king by the citizens of London on December 22, 1135.
Stephen died less than a year later in 1154. 1066 and All That offers a humorous but accurate account of the civil war: ". . .Stephen and Matilda (or Maud) spent the reign escaping from each other over the snow in nightgowns. . ." The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle addressed both the virtues of the man, and the nature of the era: "In the days of this King there was nothing but strife, evil, and robbery, for quickly the great men who were traitors rose against him. When the traitors saw that Stephen was a good-humoured, kindly, and easy-going man who inflicted no punishment, then they committed all manner of horrible crimes . . . And so it lasted for nineteen years while Stephen was King, till the land was all undone and darkened with such deeds, and men said openly that Christ and his angels slept."

King Stephen's Reign The period following the death of Henry I in 1135 and prior to the rule of Henry II were somewhat chaotic in England, dominated by the struggle between King Stephen and his cousin, the Empress Matilda, who was the daughter of Henry I and the mother of Henry II. Local nobility used the conflict to usurp power in many areas, taking advantage of the lack of a strong monarch. The period is discussed in the chronicle of Henry, Archdeacon of Huntingdon, (c.1080-1160). At this period England was in a very disturbed state; on the one hand, the king and those who took his part grievously oppressed the people, on the other frequent turmoils were raised by the Earl of Gloucester, and, what with the tyranny of the one, and the turbulence of the other, there was universal turmoil and desolation. Some, for whom their country had lost its charms, chose rather to make their abode in foreign lands; others drew to the churches for protection, and constructing mean hovels in their precincts, passed their days in fear and trouble.
Food being scarce, for there was a dreadful famine throughout England, some of the people disgustingly devoured the flesh of dogs and horses; others appeased their insatiable hunger with the garbage of uncooked herbs and roots; many, in all parts, sunk under the severity of the famine and died in heaps; others with their whole families went sorrowfully into voluntary banishment and disappeared. There were seen famous cities deserted and depopulated by the death of the inhabitants of every age and sex, and fields white for the harvest, for it was near the season of autumn, but none to gather it, all having been struck down by the famine.

King Stephen (c.1097 - 1154)
Also called Stephen of Blois, he usurped the throne but failed to consolidate his power during the ensuing civil strife. He was raised up by his uncle, Henry I. Although he and other nobles pledged to support Henry's daughter, Matilda, as successor to the throne, there was widespread unhappiness at the thought of a woman ruler. Consequently, after Henry I died in December 1135, the leading lords and bishops welcomed Stephen as the new king. Yet Stephen was not a natural leader, rapidly making concessions that exposed his weakness. He bought the support of Robert of Gloucester and appointed vast numbers of new earls, an expensive act that brought little reward. But he alienated his nobles with his desperate measures to build support and with the lawlessness of his Flemish mercenaries. In 1138, Matilda's half brother, Robert, Earl of Gloucester, took up arms on Matilda's behalf. Early victories for Stephen faded when he lost the support of the church. Seizing her opportunity, Matilda invaded England in September 1139. With foolish chivalry, Stephen had Matilda escorted to Bristol, whereupon she proceeded to take control of western England. Early in 1141 the Angevins captured Stephen in a battle at Lincoln. In November he was exchanged for Gloucester, who had been captured by forces loyal to the king. Over time, Stephen gained the upper hand and in 1148 Matilda left England.

(Saint and Founder of the Hungarian State) Stephen the first Hungarian King and founder of the Hungarian state was born in Esztergom in around 975, the son of Prince Géza and Sarolta. He became a prince in 997 and was crowned King in 1001. His wife was the Bavarian princess Gizella. She bore Stephen five children (Imre, Ottó, Bernát, Ágota and Hedvig). Stephen ruled for 41 years and died on August 15th 1038. He was buried in Székesfehérvár. His pagan name was Vajk (a word of Turkish origin meaning "hero") and his Christian name Stephen ("István" in Hungarian) was taken from the name of the martyr and protector of the church of Passau. An important role in Stephen's upbringing was played by the German priests who were, invited to come to Hungary by Prince Géza. Little is known with certainty about the future King's youth. In 995 accompanied by a magnificent retinue Stephen travelled to Bavaria and married Gizella, the daughter of Henry Prince of Bavaria.
