Historical background


HENRY VI LANCASTRE - KING OF FRANCE (1422-1453) - KING OF ENGLAND (1422-1461) and (1470-1471)

Henry VI was the son of Henry V and Catherine of France, he was born in Windsor Dec. 6, 1421. His father died when he was only ten and a half months. A regency period began and it was his uncle, the Duke of Bedford, who administered the kingdom of England. The Duke of Bedford was crowned Henry VI in Paris December 14, 1431. Under his reign, the British lost almost all their possessions in France, keeping more than Calais after the capitulation of Bordeaux 19 October 1453. In 1445, he married Margaret of Anjou, to which he gave a portion of his power, suffering from fits of madness as his maternal grandfather, King Charles VI of France. The loss of French territories was the origin of the Wars of the Roses, which began in 1455 and ended with the coronation of Edward IV in 1461 and the flight of Henry VI and Margaret of Anjou in Holland. In 1470, he was restored to the throne by Warwick, but Edward IV eventually have him imprisoned in the Tower of London, where he died May 21, 1471, probably murdered.
