King Henry VI of England 1
     Henry VI Plantagenet, King of England was born on 6 December 1421 at Windsor Castle, Windsor, Berkshire, England.2 He was the son of Henry V Plantagenet, King of England and Catherine de France. He married Margaret d'Anjou, daughter of René I 'the Good', Duc d'Anjou and Isabel de Lorraine, on 22 April 1445 at Titchfield Abbey, Titchfield, Hampshire, England. He died on 21 May 1471 at age 49 at Tower of London, The City, London, England, murdered.3 He was buried in 1485 at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, Windsor, Berkshire, England.3 He was buried at Chertsey Abbey, Surrey, England.3
     He succeeded to the title of King Henry VI of England on 31 August 1422.2 He succeeded to the title of Roi Henry de France on 11 October 1422.2 He was crowned King of England on 6 November 1429 at Westminster Abbey, Westminster, London, England, and styled 'Rex Angliae et Franciae et Dominus Hiberniae.4' He was crowned King of France on 17 December 1431 at Notre Dame de Clery, France.4 He was deposed as King of England on 4 March 1461.2 He gained the title of King Henry VI of England on 30 October 1470, known as 'the Redemption'.3 He was deposed as King of England on 11 April 1471.3
     He was less than a year old on accession. Within two months, on the death of Charles VI of France, he was also in name, King of France. In a long and costly series of wars, all French possessions were lost except Calais. The French artillery was supreme and Joan of Arc played a notable part in the French victories. The English burned her at the stake for heresy and sorcery in Rouen on 30 May 1431. The Hundred Years' war ended with the defeat of the English at Castillon in 1453. King Henry was a weak 'pawn' in the hands of a strong Queen and powerful Knights. He became insane in 1453 and Queen Margaret fought on his behalf. The Wars of the Roses began in 1455, the factions symbolized by badges depicting the white rose of York and the red rose of Lancaster. Henry was seized by Yorkists in 1460 and forced to acknowledge York as his heir. Lancastrians recaptured Henry in 1461 but Yorkists declared him deposed and Edward, Duke of York declared King. Henry again fell into Yorkist hands (1465), but was briefly (1470-1) restored to the throne by former Yorkist supporter Richard Neville, 15th Earl of Warwick, who governed in Henry's name. Edward again ousted him and Henry was thrown into captivity in the Tower and put to death on Tuesday 21st May 1471. Henry was completely unsuited for his position, especially after he lost his sanity. He founded Eton College in 1440 and King's College, Cambridge in 1441. Henry started his reign at the age of 9 months, the youngest of any English Monarch. He has an extensive biographical entry in the Dictionary of National Biography.5
