After the meeting at [Clarendon], Thomas Becket asked [Pope] Alexander III for support against Henry II. As a result, he was charged with treason and went into exile in [Pontigny] in France. England had no Archbishop of [Canterbury] between 1164 and 1170.  In early [1170] Henry II made the decision to crown his eldest son King of England. Henry, the [Young] King, was crowned in May 1170. The coronation was led by the Archbishop of [York]. Thomas [Becket] should have led the service. This angered the Pope and Thomas Becket.  Henry II decided to travel to [France] in late 1170 to make up with his old [friend] Thomas Becket..
