Tudor History by Michele Morrical

Readeption of King Henry VI – October 13, 1470

Michele Morrical

With Warwick and Clarence in full rebellion of Edward IV’s rule, they sailed from France and invaded England with a large fleet of 60 French ships. Instead of facing them, King Edward IV fled to the Netherlands and the protection of his sister, Mary of Burgundy. King Henry VI’s readeption coronation took place on October 13, 1470. Later in October Jasper brought Henry Tudor to London to be reunited with his mother. On October 27th, Margaret took 13-year-old Henry Tudor to meet his uncle, King Henry VI, for the first time, then they spent 1-2 weeks together before Henry left his mother to rejoin Jasper and travel back to Wales.

About The Author

My journey into Tudor history began about 10 years ago with the TV show “The Tudors” from Showtime. As I watched the show, I wondered how much of it was really true because the storylines were more dramatic and shocking than any soap opera I had ever seen. I picked up Margaret George’s autobiography of Henry VIII and I was hooked. I’ve since read over 100 books on the Tudor period and I’m currently writing my own book about the Wars of the Roses.
