British royalty, the son of Henry V and Catherine de Valois. With the death of his father, he inherited the throne at nine months and ruled under the auspices of regents for years. He grew into a plain, tired and nervous man who wished for peace and leisure instead of war and business. During his reign, he favored education, founding King's College at Cambridge and Eton College.
Deemed by some to be a saint, he was thought a simpleton by others, having apparent spells of insanity. Under political and military pressure, he fled to Scotland with his family and spent his later years as a fugitive or a prisoner; his cousin, Edward IV, had him put into the Tower of London. He died on 5/21/1471 OS, probably from blunt head trauma.
