Richard II and Henry IV

Active selection:    
To the jeers of his subjects, Richard II was led through the streets of London on his way to the Tower - according to many accounts (top). Others relate that so great was the hatred for Richard that it was thought the mere sight of him would stir the mob to a frenzy, and he had to be smuggled into the royal fortress in secret. Certainly, England's capital had no love for its king. Bottom: "You are a traitor, Sir!" roared the King. Drawing his dagger he lunged forward to attack Sir Henry Percy, known to his friends as Hotspur.  Original artwork for the illustrations on p15 of L&L issue no. 983 (10 January 1981).
