Would you like to learn more about King Henry VI of England? Below are the Best Books about Henry VI, King of England from 1422-1461 and again from 1470-1471 during his readeption orchestrated by Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick, also known as “The Kingmaker”.
Henry VI was the only child of the great warrior king Henry V and his French bride, Catherine of Valois. Henry VI was born at Windsor Castle in England on December 6, 1421 while his father was away campaigning in France. In fact, his father never even had a chance to meet his son before his untimely death in 1422. Young Henry was at a serious disadvantage inheriting so young and having never seen an example of a king. Henry’s reign was quite disastrous. Not only did he manage to lose all of the French territories that his father Henry V had won, his inability to lead and susceptibility to being governed by his barons led to the Wars of the Roses.
As you can see, there aren’t very many books about King Henry VI but many books on the Wars of the Roses include information about Henry VI. So be sure to also check out my list of the Best Books on the Wars of the Roses.
