Hello! Following the success of part 1, I’ve decided to do part 2! Here we go!
Henry IV: Overthrew Richard II (boo-hoo) and fought off Richard’s supporters, Welsh revolts and people trying to nab the throne of HIM (it would have served him right!)
Henry V: Restored Edward III’s claim to the French throne and fought the French at the battle of Agincourt (Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more, and close this wall up with our English dead… Shakespeare reference).
Henry VI: Crowned at nine months old, went mad, got overthrown, became King again, got overthrown AGAIN and then died.
Edward IV: Became king, got overthrown, became King again and STAYED ON THE THRONE! (Notice where this is heading?)
Edward V: Became King but was proved illegitimate. Locked up in the Tower. Some say (SHAKESPEARE!) that Richard III had him and his brother killed.
Richard III: Not as bad as SHAKESPEARE portrayed him, Richard was killed in battle at the Battle of Bosworth Field (A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse… sorry)
Henry VII: Married a York and ended the War of the Roses. Also started the navy.
Henry VIII: Closed monasteries, killed monks, burned Protestants. Hmm… what else about Henry VIII? Oh yeah. HE HAD SIX WIVES! (Almost forgot that=)
Look out for part 3, Edward VI to James II soon!
