You do not misremember.  King John got quite upset when
he proposed invading France to re-take the French territories
he'd lost, only to find that his vassals holding land there
had done homage to Phillip II of France for those lands, and
in France were Phillip's men, not John's.  William Marshal
was one who felt the particular brunt of John's anger, to
little lasting effect.
