Character description

1.)Thomas Arundel (1352-1414), Archbishop of Canterbury 1396-1414. The third son of Richard FitzAlan, 8th Earl of Arundel. As was often the case with younger sons of nobility, he was consigned to the church but rapidly promoted once there, being only an Oxford undergraduate when he was made bishop of Ely in 1374. He became Archbishop of York in 1386, at a time when his older brother was dominating the government of Richard II. He served as Chancellor 1386-1389, being set aside when Richard took power into his own hands, but regained the post in 1391. He was translated to Canterbury in 1396, but unofficially deposed when Richard destroyed his enemies in 1397. Arundel then supported the usurpation of Henry IV, who overthrew Richard II in 1399, and returned to his see as a result. He served two more terms as Chancellor after that, and crowned King Henry V before dying in 1414.
