Royalty. King of Navarra and Count of Champagne. He was born the youngest son of Thibaut I and his third wife Marguerite de Bourbon. When his brother Thibaut II joined the Seventh Crusade he took over the regency of his territories. A few months later, in December 1270, Thibaut died in Trapani on the way back to Navarra. Henri was proclaimed king in the following March but was crowned only in 1273. During his short reign Navarra fell more and more under french influence. After his death the citizen of Pamplona revolted against the french and his widow and daughter had to flee to the french court. With his death the male line of the house of Champagne became extinct. His daughters marriage to the dauphin, later Philipp IV, united the two kingdoms for several decades.
