Thomas Becket was Archbishop of Canterbury from 1162 until his assassination on December 29, 1170. He is most famous for his refusal to grant the King privileges belonging to the Church including the trying of clergy in civil courts. Becket’s assassination, many believe, was at the behest of King Henry II when he is famously quoted as saying “Will no one rid me of this turbulent priest?”
