    This is the latest release from the Penguin English Monarchs series and author James Ross narrates the tale of England's' least successful king throughout our long history. The childlike King Henry VI who succeeded to the throne of both England and France in 1422 at the age of just nine months! Historians have long been divided about Henry's' obvious weaknesess and failures and about how much he is personally responsible for the utter collapse and near-anarchy which resulted in the Wars of The Roses which would eventually kill Henry and very nearly destroy The House of Lancaster. He was certainly a godly man and was not without many admirable qualities. However, Medieval kingship meant a leader of men and one that would shine as a noble and crusading warrior upon the battlefield.Of this Henry was clearly incapable and yet Ross argues that at least before his mental collapse of 1453 Herhry's' involvement in government was more active then many historians think possible. Clearly , the loss of France and the resulting in-fighting of his nobles can be blamed on Henry's' weak and indecisive government. After 1453, things change and Henry is a man who never recovers his sanity and becomes a rather forlorn pitiful figure. His forceful wife Margaret Of Anjou takes over the Lancastrian forces but is untrusted largely because of her female status and she is unable to stop the House of York from taking the throne and eventually becoming the dominant force within the country. Henry has divided opinion over the centuries and his complex reign is long and iil-served even by the notoriously unreliable sources of the Fifteenth Century! James Ross brings this unfortunate man alive and reading his all too short account of his long and ill-starred reign will be totally illuminating for all those who read it.

    Concise, well-researched, and readable history of Henry VI, described as a "Good, Simple and Innocent Man" but utterly unsuited to kingship. James Ross both tells the sad, tragic story of this Lancastrian monarch and critiques historians' interpretations of his long reign. Well worth adding to a library of medieval history by a highly qualified academic historian.
