Character description

Henry VI (1421-1471) became King of England at the age of nine months on the death of his father Henry V. He was a central figure in the long-running Hundred Years War and the Wars of the Roses. He suffered from a mental illness, which led his wife, Margaret of Anjou, to take leadership of the Lancastrian party and its army.
