Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Roger of Worcester (died Tours, 9 August 1179) was Bishop of Worcester from 1164 to 1179. He had a major role in the controversy between Henry II of England, who was Roger's cousin, and Archbishop Thomas Becket.Roger's father was Robert, 1st Earl of Gloucester. His illegitimate half-brother Richard was Bishop of Bayeux from 1135 to 1142. Roger was a younger son and he was educated with the future king, Henry II, afterwards ordained priest, and consecrated Bishop of Worcester by Thomas Becket, on 23 August 1163.He adhered loyally to Thomas, and though one of the bishops sent to the pope to carry the king's appeal against the archbishop, he took no active part in the embassy, nor did he join the appeal made by the bishops against the archbishop in 1166, thus arousing the enmity of the king.
