In this widely acclaimed biography, the medieval historian Bertram Wolffe challenges the traditional view of Henry VI as an unworldly, innocent, and saintly monarch and offers instead a finely drawn but critical portrait of an ineffectual ruler, providing a fascinating and challenging political biography of a king previously considered to have only a 'religious' life. An uncommon first edition.
