Henry VI | Lauren Johnson on The Shadow King

Mar 05, 2019, 06:00 AM

Ahead of the release of her new book, Shadow King: The Life and Death of Henry VI we were joined by historian and writer Lauren Johnson to reevaluate the life of the man some have called the worst monarch in English history.

At the centre of the storm that was the War of the Roses and surrounded by larger-than-life characters on both sides, Henry VI was a quiet and pious man who just wanted everyone to get along. In an age of intrigue and murder we ask: as a Medieval King, was it a bad thing to be a good egg?
