Fun Fact: King and Queen of Ireland

Fun facts about Ireland

King Henry II of England was made Lord of Ireland instead of King as the Pope had granted him this “honor” officially despite an invasion through force made it so regardless. When King Henry VIII broke away from the Catholic Church he made himself officially king instead of lord when it came to Ireland. When his Catholic daughter Mary took the throne, the Pope had no issues recognizing her as Queen of Ireland and her husband Phillip as King of Ireland instead of Lady and Lord.
