Character description

Henry Percy, Second Earl of Northumberland (c. 1394-1455): The son of the famous Harry "Hotspur" Percy, he lost his father at the Battle of Shrewsbury in 1403. His family lost many offices in the early Lancastrian period due to their rebellions against Henry IV, and the second earl became involved in feuds with the Neville family as he tried to regain his power. This led Percy into the Lancastrian camp in the Wars of the Roses, and he was kill at or after the First Battle of St. Albans.
