This volume is a study of Henry Beaufort-the first resident cardinal in the English church, Chancellor of England, and councillor to three kings-who was a leading figure in the rise and decline of the 15th-century Lancastrian kingship. Controversial in his lifetime and vilified in the 16th century for his reputed wealth, pride, and ambition-most notably by Shakespeare in Henry VI-Beaufort's historical reputation has since varied widely.

Harriss also records Henry Beaufort’s promotion to the rank of Cardinal, his dealings with Martin V and other pontiffs together with the accusations of praemunire that Gloucester laid against him. Eventually, during Beaufort’s lifetime, Gloucester’s downfall followed his wife’s necromancy that led to her life imprisonment and the execution of several of her servants.

This volume is a study of Henry Beaufort--the first resident cardinal in the English church, Chancellor of England, and councillor to three kings--who was a leading figure in the rise and decline of the 15th-century Lancastrian kingship. Controversial in his lifetime and vilified in the 16th century for his reputed wealth, pride, and ambition--most notably by Shakespeare in Henry VI--Beaufort's historical reputation has since varied widely. Harris provides the most sympathetic and balanced account to date, focusing on his achievements as statesman, churchman, and financier, and presenting important new insights into the chaotic world of 15th-century English politics.
