The Life and Death of Henry VI
A National Archives author talk and book signing
This event coincides with the publication of a new popular history study on the life of King Henry VI, by Dr Lauren Johnson; author of The Arrow of Sherwood (2013) and So Great a Prince (2016).
She charts the extraordinary rise and fall of the son of Henry V, who became king as an infant but who, as an adult ruler, oversaw the loss of the English claim to the throne of France, and whose inabilities sparked the Wars of the Roses in England.
Dr Lauren Johnson is a historian and costumed interpreter with a first-class degree from Oxford University. The research for the book was completed at The National Archives and she provides an insight into her processes as part of this fascinating talk.
