 The Order of St Patrick
The jewels were also used on the occasion of the investiture of the Prince of Wales, later to become Edward VII, in the Order of St. Patrick in 1868.
Unfortunately the investiture was never completed because Henry refused to accept the Pope's terms, one penny each year for every house in Ireland, and present papal rights to remain intact.
Henry II, however, appointed his son, Prince John, Lord of Ireland in 1185, and the Pope, by this time Pope Urban II, sent a gold crown adorned with peacock feathers for the coronation of John as Lord of Ireland.
