Henry VI (Penguin Monarchs) Paperback / softback
by James Ross
Part of the Penguin Monarchs series
'No other medieval king had such demonstrably serious mental health issues; no other king was so notoriously susceptible to those around him; no other king was so clearly uninterested in the business of government' Henry VI, son of the all-conquering Henry V, was one of the least successful of English kings, whose weakness bankrupted the nation and led to the Wars of the Roses.
Yet was he always a foolish puppet? This groundbreaking portrait pieces together the evidence to show a manifestly decent man trapped in a role to which he was utterly unsuited.
