    Born in Ravens­burg, in 1129 or 1131, he was the son of Henry the Proud, Duke of Bavaria and Sax­ony, who was the son of Duke Henry the Black and an heir of the Bil­lungs, for­mer dukes of Sax­ony. Henry's mother was Gertrude, only daugh­ter of Em­peror Lothair III and his wife Richenza of Northeim, heiress of the Saxon ter­ri­to­ries of Northeim and the prop­er­ties of the Brunones, counts of Brunswick. Henry's fa­ther died in 1139, aged 32, when Henry was still a child. King Con­rad III had dis­pos­sessed Henry the Proud of his duchies in 1138 and 1139, hand­ing Sax­ony to Al­bert the Bear and Bavaria to Leopold of Aus­tria. This was be­cause Henry the Proud had been his rival for the crown in 1138. Henry III, how­ever, did not re­lin­quish his claims to his in­her­i­tance, and Con­rad re­turned Sax­ony to him in 1142. A par­tic­i­pant in the 1147 Wendish Cru­sade, Henry also reac­quired Bavaria by a de­ci­sion of the new Em­peror Fred­er­ick Bar­barossa in 1156. How­ever, the Eas...

    The Henry the Lion Bible is pre­served in near mint con­di­tion from the year 1170; it is lo­cated in the Her­zog Au­gust Li­brary in Wolfenbüttel, a town in Lower Sax­ony. Henry the Lion re­mains a pop­u­lar fig­ure to this day. Dur­ing World War I, a nail man de­pict­ing Henry the Lion, called Eis­erner Hein­rich, was used in Brunswick to raise funds for the Ger­man war ef­fort. Nazi pro­pa­ganda later de­clared Henry an an­te­ces­sor of the Nazi's Leben­sraum pol­icyand turned Brunswick Cathe­dral and Henry's tomb into a "Na­tional Place of Consecration". 1. Henry the Lion on the coat of arms of Schw­erin. 2. Order of Henry the Lion, order of merit of the Duchy of Brunswick(awarded from 1834 to 1918). 3. Henry the Lion's Foun­tain (1874), Brunswick. 4.

    Shortly after his death, Henry the Lion be­came the sub­ject of a folk­tale, the so-called Hein­richssage. The tale was later also turned into the opera En­rico Leone by Ital­ian com­poser Agostino Stef­fani. The Hein­richssage de­tails a fic­tional ac­count of Henry's pil­grim­age to the Holy Land. A pop­u­lar part of the tale deals with the Brunswick Lion. Ac­cord­ing to leg­end, Henry wit­nessed a fight be­tween a lion and a dragon while on pil­grim­age. He joins the lion in its fight and they slay the dragon. The faith­ful lion then ac­com­pa­nies Henry on his re­turn home. After its mas­ter's death, the lion re­fuses all food and dies of grief on Henry's grave. The peo­ple of Brunswick then erect a statue in the lion's honour. The leg­end of Henry the Lion also in­spired the Czech tale of the knight Bruncvík, which is de­picted on a col­umn on Charles Bridge in Prague. Henry the Lion ap­pears in Age of Em­pires 2: The Age of Kingsin the Bar­barossa cam­paign. He ap­pears in the...

    Starting conditions

    1. Starting Age: Castle Age 2. Starting resources: 1000 wood, 1000 food, 1000 gold 3. Population limit:75 4. Starting units: 4.1. 10 Pikemen 4.2. 6 Crossbowmen 4.3. 6 Knights 4.4. 1 Light Cavalry


    1. Defeat Poland. 1.1. Defeat Henry the Lion.


    1. The German states of Bavaria and Saxony are 'feeding' the armies of Barbarossa and Henry the Lion. Defend the helpless feeders at all costs.


    1. Player (Teutons): The player starts in a central-western position on the map. All military building for training land units are at the player's disposal, but no Villagers, so the player cannot build up an economy.


    1. Bavaria (Teutons): Bavaria lies in the southern part of the map, with only Villagersand civilian buildings, gathering resources and paying tribute to the player. 2. Saxony (Teutons): Saxony lies in the northwest. Just like Bavaria, they also have only Villagers and civilian buildings, gathering resources and paying tribute to the player.

    Allies → Enemies

    1. Henry the Lion (Teutons): Henry the Lion has his base at the western tip of the map, without any Villagers. He builds rams and Teutonic Knights. As his stance towards Poland is 'ally', his army does not resist the Polish invasion and simply gets slaughtered by the Polish (This is corrected in the Definitive Edition; while he is not particularly aggressive, he will attack the Polish if they attack him and may target the Castle near his base). In a later stage of the game, he becomes the pla...

    The player starts from the central-western part of the map. Poland will have a navy attacking them in the early stage of the game, so they may need to build Fire Ships to defend themselves against the Polish navy. However, once the player has destroyed the Polish navy and they have stopped building a navy, they may start building Trade Cogs to trade with the Polish Docks. It is also possible to end the threat of a Polish navy very early on (at least on standard difficulty) by sending the player's Fire Ships to burn down their Docks in the very early game. The player will encounter War Galleys en route which they must eliminate, but this can almost instantly remove considerations of a Polish navy from the game. Poland will invade both the player and Henry the Lion (who will simply get slaughtered without resistance unless playing the Definitive Edition), and may occasionally attack Saxony and Bavaria. As Poland is attacking Henry the Lion, it would be advisable to at least destroy th...

    Henry the Lion has the same voice as the narrator of the Barbarossa campaign, foreshadowing the reveal that they are the same person in the final outro.
    This is one of two scenarios in which a player starts with over 20,000 points; namely, Henry and the Polish. The other scenario where this happens is York.
    The only way to win this scenario without being betrayed by Henry (and thus sharing a victory) is with the "i r winner" cheat.
    Like in the previous scenario, the player starts with a Light Cavalry even though it isn't available to the Teutonsotherwise.
    Barbarossa invaded Poland early in his reign, in 1157. However, the purpose was not conquest but the restoration of Wladyslaw II, who had fled to Germany after being overthrown by his brother, Bole...
    The second (if not main) inspiration of the scenario is Henry the Lion's campaigns against the Slavic Duchy of Pomerania on the lower Oder river in 1147, 1164, and 1177. Pomerania was once pledged...
    Henry was the Duke of Saxony since 1142 and was made Duke of Bavaria by Barbarossa in 1156, explaining why he remains allied with Saxony and Bavaria in the game despite betraying the player.
    Henry's eastern wars brought his downfall eventually, but in a less direct manner than in the scenario. Instead of rebelling against Barbarossa, he refused to provide troops for Barbarossa's Italia...

Hitherto, the enemies of Henry—the princes, bishops, and magnates of Saxony—had been unable to gain a hearing against him at the emperor’s court days. By 1178 ...
