9780198201359: Cardinal Beaufort: A Study of Lancastrian Ascendancy and Decline

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.
