Описание

Always weak and malleable, King Henry VI falls into a catatonic state and doesn't emerge for sixteen months. His queen, Margaret of Anjou, will do anything to protect her husband and infant son. The great lords are fighting for supremacy. These elements combine to lead the kingdom into the Wars of the Roses: York against Lancaster. Edward of York is a carefree and libidinous youth, given more to the pursuit of women than the lust for a crown, but when his father and younger brother are killed in battle he throws off the follies of youth and emerges as an inspired leader and surprisingly able military man. Edward has a claim to the throne; some would say it is better than the reigning king's.
