Archbishop of Canterbury from 1162 to 1170. He went against the king. He was cannonized
As Archbishop of Canterbury from 1162, Thomas Becket excommunicated the archbishop of York and two other bishops in November 1170.. The excommunication of the bishops by Becket was his response to the coronation, in June 1170 by the archbishop of York, of the young son of Henry II who was a token… co-regent until his father's death in 1183. Becket had been in exile for earlier oppositions to the king, and this brought matters to a head. In Becket's eyes crowning the king was a Canterbury privilege. He agreed terms with Henry and returned to England with the intention of punishing those who had infringed that privilege.. When the excommunicated bishops complained to the king, then in Normandy, Henry II's angry words prompted four knights to cross the Channel and kill Becket in his own cathedral on 29 December 1170, a murder that shocked Christendom. Little more than two years later, in February 1173, he was canonized by Alexander III. (MORE)

Catholic Answer Usually an "archbishop" is just a Bishop of an archdiocese. In some instances, he may be, historically, a cardinal, but not always. An archbishop has no real authority outside of his own diocese except very specific procedural things which have been assigned to him from Rome. An… archdiocese would be the central, or historically most important diocese in a province. from Modern Catholic Dictionary by John A. Hardon, S.J. Doubleday & Co., Inc. Garden City, NY 1980 . Archbishop. A bishop who presides over one or more (arch)dioceses. He may call the bishops to a provincial council, having the right duty to do so, and he may act as first judge of appeal over a decision of one of his bishops. His immediate jurisdiction, however, pertains solely to his own diocese. He is often styled "metropolitan" because of the importance of his see city or ecclesiastical province.. (MORE)

Thomas Becket was the Archbishop of Canterbury. He had been a close friend of King Henry II of England prior to becoming archbishop. Once Becket found himself in power, however, he found it necessary to protect the interests of the Church against King Henry, who had wanted to decrease the Church's p…ower and increase his own. This lead to a feud between the two, in which Henry had Becket tried and found guilty of various crimes, even though as a cleric, Becket was exempt from secular trial; and, or his part, Becket threatened to excommunicate Henry. Things were so bad Becket fled the country for two years, and the pope threatened to excommunicate Henry. Henry wanted to crown his son, Henry, as a king subservient to himself, and he had a couple of bishops perform a coronation. The problem with this was that Becket had the right to perform the coronation. For Becket, this was a last straw, and he excommunicated the king. Henry, who was sick in bed at the time, heard this and called out in frustration some words to the effect that he wished to be rid of Becket (records differ widely on precisely what he said). Four knights rode to Canterbury to get Becket, and when he refused to go with them (he was at a service in the cathedral at the time) they attacked him with their swords and killed him. (MORE)

Thomas Becket was not called Thomas Ã Becket during his own lifetime.

An Archbishop is the Ordinary (the head) of a Catholic Archdiocese. He has full authority as the diocesan Bishop within the boundaries of their Archdiocese. In addition, an Archbishop is the head of an Ecclesiastical Province comprising his Archdiocese and other dioceses (called suffragans) in that …region. In these suffragan dioceses the Archbishop has no authority, but only a higher dignity. The title of "Archbishop" can also be conferred by the Pope as a personal title on a certain Bishop without that Bishop becoming the head of an Archdiocese. In this case the title is merely honorary and confers no additional authority over and above that which the Bishop already possessed. (MORE)

After the murder of Thomas Becket the Archbishopric remained vacant for two years. The king wanted to install his own candidate (the bishop of Meaux), but the monks insisted on holding a free and fair election. The monks chose Robert, the abbot of Bec in Normandy, but he was too nervous to accept… the position of archbishop. The murder of Becket continued to have an impact for some time . . . The monks held another election and this time Richard, Prior of Dover was selected. This choice was not supported by the king, who appealed against the decision (he still thought he should have full control over Church matters). Despite this, Richard was made archbishop of Canterbury in 1174 and he remained so until his death in 1184. (MORE)
