Laudabiliter was a papal bull issued in 1155 by Adrian IV, the only Englishman to serve as Pope, giving the Angevin King Henry II of England the right to assume control over Ireland and establish Papal Supremacy over the heretofore independent Irish Church. The Norman invasion of Ireland ensued in 1169-71 under the pretext of this bull following the intervention of Richard de Clare a Hiberno-Norman knight from Wales, retained by the King of Leinster, Diarmuid MacMorrough in his fight to regain his kingdom and the throne of the High King of Ireland. The kings of England, from Henry II (1171) until Henry VIII (1541), derived the title and the authority Lord of Ireland from this Bull. Subsequently, with the Reformation and the declaration of the independence of the Church of England from Papal Supremacy, the Parliament of Ireland declared its independence from the Holy See by establishing the Kingdom of Ireland and granting King Henry the title and authority of King of Ireland. In recent years, since the declaration of independence of the Republic of Ireland, Irish Nationalists and Roman Catholics supportive of the independence of the Irish Republic have sought to maintain that the Laudabiliter was in fact a forgery and attempt to infer it was devised by King Henry. However, given that the Bull actually limited King Henry's power in Ireland to that of a mere feudal lord owing fealty to the Papal Crown as well as reducing his power in his own Kingdom of England this is unlikely. Rather, if any forgery was devised it was done so within the Papacy itself as a means of extending its own power over the temporal lords of Europe. Furthermore, the Bull was mentioned in historical documents prior to the intervention into Ireland by King Henry. Whatever the case, the Laudabiliter was accorded by its contemporaries and subsequent scholars and Doctors of the Church and Lawyers of the English Crown as a legitimate Bull down to the day of the establishment of the Irish Republic.
