Abstract

In 2019 the History of Parliament will publish its first set of volumes relating to the middle ages since the volumes for 1386-1421 appeared in 1992. The new set, in preparation for over 25 years, covers the Parliaments of the reign of Henry VI. The papers in this session showcase some of the major themes in the English parliamentary history of the period: the role of Parliament in the final phase of the hundred years’ war; the lordly rivalries that ultimately broke out into open civil war; and the decline of royal authority in the face of the King’s mental collapse.
