Storyboard Text

  • 1450 - The Loss of Normandy
  • 1450 - The death of Suffolk
  • 1450 - The Jack Cade Rebellion
  • King Charles VII declared that he was no longer bound to the Treaty of Tours truce. Charles then re-organised his army and the French fought against the English. The French won.
  • 1452 - York's failed removal of Somerset at Dartford
  • Suffolk was targeted during the Parliament of 1450 when he was imprisoned in the Tower on the charge of treason. However, Henry VI favoured Suffolk and cleared him of all charges. Suffolk tried to escape but was intercepted by pirates, and was beheaded on May 2nd, 1450.
  • 1453 - Henry VI develops Catatonic schizophrenia
  • The peasants wanted to rid the King of his, 'evil councillors' like Lord Saye and the Duke of Somerset, as they believed that they were leading the King astray. They marched to London and went to the House of Commons, as the House of Lords weren't likely to listen to them.
  • 1453 - Margaret and Richard of York vie for the Protectorate
  • The Duke of York gathered his men and marched from Ludlow to London. This was because York wanted to become Protectorate, and wanted to destroy Somerset. Eventually, he was forced to come to an agreement with the King where he was allowed to present his complaints but was arrested and forced to swear an oath of alligance.
  • The valuable area of Normandy was finally lost, and there were losses in Gascony too. The English finally loss the war on the 17th July, 1453. This military disaster supposidly caused Henry VI to suffer a mental breakdown, which then left him in a catatonic state.
  • Margaret attempted to declare herself as regent and then exclude York from all considerations (as she supported Somerset), but York's seniority of wealth and lineage outdid the queen as she was French. York became Protectorate of the Realm by late March 1454.
