English Episcopal ACTA, II. Audience: General/trade. Geoffrey, the illegitimate son of Henry II, was successively archdeacon and bishop-elect of lincoln, royal chancellor, and (for 23 years) archbishop of york, finally dying in exile during the interdict following his opposition to john's imposition of the 13th. His enduring loyalty to his father, which inspired the subsequent mistrust of his royal half brothers after Henry's death, placed him at the very centre of late twelfth and early thirteenth century politics.
