      "Flying in the face of canon law and most people's notions of decency, the two were married in 1160: he was aged five; she was two. According to the terms of the agreement that Henry and Louis had made, as soon as the two had been joined in matrimony with 'the assent and consent of the Holy Church,' Henry was entitled to take control of the castles of the Vexin from the Templars, into whose hands they had been given for safe custody."

      "The wedding was a scandal, being in direct contravention of Church law, and it was later joked not only that Marguerite had been presented in a cot, but that both children wailed through the ceremony."
