Character description

Adam Moleyns (d. 1450): Bishop of Chichester in the reign of King Henry VI of England. He became Keeper of the Privy Seal in 1444. He was one of the ambassadors to France in the 1440s who arranged Henry's French marriage -- and the associated surrender of the County of Maine, occupied by the English, to the French. Anger over this was such that Moleyns was lynched on January 9, 1450.
