Succeeding to the throne at the age of only nine months, Henry VI had a turbulent reign: he inherited a war with France and, in time, found himself at war with his own nobles. James Ross surveys this eventful life, including Henry's deposition at the hands of Edward IV and his eventual return to the throne.
James Ross is Senior Lecturer in Late Medieval History at the University of Winchester. He has published extensively on late medieval England, its politics and government, and is the author of John de Vere, Thirteenth Earl of Oxford, 1442-1513. 'The Foremost Man of the Kingdom'
