King Henry VI

Active selection:
King Henry VI.  After the battle of St Albans, in which his favourite the Duke of Somerset was killed, the king walked disgustedly off the field and into a nearby house.  There the rebel Duke of York found him and falling on his knees said:  "Rejoice, sire, for the traitor Somerset is slain"  The king cried out in anguish: "For God's sake stop this slaughter of my subjects!"  Original artwork for illustration on p14 of Look and Learn issue no 994 (28 March 1981).  Lent for scanning by The Gallery of Illustration.
