History Trivia - Treaty of Wallingford signed

November 6, 1153 - Treaty of Wallingford was signed.  This agreement effectively ended the civil war known as the Anarchy, caused by a dispute between Empress Matilda and her cousin, King Stephen of England, over the English crown.  The Treaty of Wallingford forced Stephen to recognize Matilda's son, Henry of Anjou, who became Henry II, as his heir, while Stephen kept the throne  until he died.
