Christmas 1183, an aging and conniving King Henry II plans a reunion where he hopes to name his successor. Henry the II and his prison bound wife Eleanor of Acquitaine, meet with their three surviving sons at Christmas to decide which of them should become the new king after Henry's death. Each of the sons has some flaw that makes the decision difficult, but the pair have spent their lives fighting for position and both find it seemingly impossible to stop. With the fate of Henry's empire at stake, each member of the family engages in their own brand of deception and treachery to stake their claim. The Lion in Winter is fictional, however, the events leading up to the story are generally accurate. The play was made in to an Academy Award winning 1968 film starring Peter O'Toole and Katherine Hepburn.
