The Life and Death of Henry VI by Lauren Johnson
In this talk inspired by her book Shadow King: The Life and Death of Henry VI, author Lauren Johnson tells the story of perhaps the most troubled of English monarchs.
A pious, gentle, well-intentioned man who was plagues by bouts of mental illness, Lauren tells of his remarkable and sometimes shocking story that captures both the poignancy of Henry's life and the tumultuous and bloody nature of the times in which he lived.
