Richard II (6 January 1367 – c. 14 February 1400), King of England, a member of the House of Plantagenet, became king as a child of 10 and ruled from reaching his majority in 1389 until he was deposed in 1399. He was a son of Edward, the Black Prince, and his wife Joan of Kent, born during the reign of his grandfather, King Edward III. He was nicknamed Richard of Bordeaux for his birthplace.
