  • This is so unfair!
  • When Richard returned in July 1399, he was met by superior forces and defeated. The king surrendered to Bolingbroke. 
  • I'm going to get rid of Bolingbroke and Mowbray for good. Hahaha!
  • With Richard his prisoner, Henry was free to take the throne. Henry needed to make a case that he had a rightful claim to the throne. First he stated that Richard was unfit to rule, then he argued that he was related to Edward III so he had a strong claim to the throne. Henry was crowned Henry IV on October 1399.
  • Let's go to Ireland!
  • Warwick was imprisoned.
  • There were rumours that Henry Bolingbroke might make a bid for the throne. Richard exploited a quarrel that had arisen between Bolingbroke and Mowbray to exile them both. When John of Graunt died, Richard confiscated Bolingbroke's inheritance.
  • Richard I felt that his position at home was secure enough to take his forces on a campaign to Ireland.
