Henry VI and the Battle of St Albans

Wed, 20 March 2019

In St Albans in 1455, the 33-year-old Henry VI faced battle for the first time. It was a devastating experience for a king only just recovered from an episode of mental illness. Henry had inherited the thrones of England and France from his father Henry V, victor of Agincourt, before his first birthday. But he had already lost France, and the Battle of St Albans brought about the devastating Wars of the Roses - and Henry’s ultimate destruction. 

Join historian Lauren Johnson as she explores Henry VI’s reign and the Battle of St Albans in this illustrated talk, with book signing.
