The Friendship between King Henry and Thomas Becket The friendship between King Henry and Thomas Becket could be described as strange and confusing When Becket served under King Henry as Chancellor their friendship was close and caring They were in separable partners Henry let Becket make important decisions and speak for him because because he was a very witty person In my opinion King Henry and Thomas Beckets friendship deteriorated when the King promoted Becket Arch Bishop of Canterbury Becket and the King were the Best of friends They took expeditions hunting together Becket was even appointed by the King as Chancellor The King needed Becket more than Becket needed the Henry You taught me everything said Henry to Becket Becket was devoted to his work as chancellor and was grateful that his friend gave him this opportunity becket once said My mother is now England pointing to the ring he was given for being Chancellor While I wear it my duty is to the King said Becket This shows Beckets loyalty to his friend and how serious he takes his job Once the old arch Bishop died Henry wanted to replace him with someone who he could trust dearly You are the only man I can trust said King Henry to Becket and therefore he was given the job as Arch Bishop of Canterbury This shows they were close friends at this point in time Henry trusted Becket not to back stab him This was a very powerful position Henry appointed Becket to be Becket like every other job he had began to take his role as Arch Bishop seriously and started to do things that the King would not agree to This is the point in this story where I feel friendship and respect for each other
