We need either something Norman (aka French) or German. Something tha continues to convey this ruddy character (and no, we can't use Henri).
Edward (as in I,II,II, and the Black Prince)?
(No, not Henry IV,V,VI)
Richard (as in I Lionhearted, II, III)?
(NO! WE CAN'T USE HENRY!!)
Louis? (as in a great many numbers)
Charles? (also a great many numbers)
I like Fredrick. As in Fredrick Barbarossa, Fredrick II, Fredrick IV (fought with Pope Gregory, formerly the monk Hildebrand) In fact, I like it so much, I won't suggest any more names that might be running through my head. AND THAT INCLUDES HENRY!!!
With or without the Barbarossa.
(Please note, I am not even attempted to outshow TTK in medieval expertise: names and geneaolgies are about my limit.)
