HENRY VI, THE LOSS OF FRANCE AND THE FIRST WAR OF THE ROSES’.
Talk by GEORGE GOODWIN MA FRHistS FRSA.
‘LIVE’ in St Anne’s Parish Hall
SATURDAY 22 JANUARY 2022
11.00 to 12.00
Coffee served at 10.30 am
We are delighted to welcome George back. George is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and the British Library. His highly-illustrated talk will mark the 600th anniversary of the birth of Henry VI – the founder of Eton and King’s College, Cambridge – and England’s most tragic monarch. Henry’s reign saw the chaos in the King’s own mind spreading to his Kingdom, leading to the loss of England’s vast territories in France and to civil war at home. It effectively ended in 1461, with the Armageddon of Towton – the bloodiest battle on English soil. Something to get the blood stirring in January – though George will also lighten the mood with his ready wit and entertaining presentation.
