King Henry VI with Lauren Johnson

Although people love to read and learn about The Wars of the Roses, there’s one historical figure who is rarely found in the limelight: Henry VI. This week, Danièle speaks with Lauren Johnson about the somewhat forgotten “shadow king” Henry, his life, his illness, and his quiet but important legacy.

Lauren Johnson is a historian, writer and heritage interpreter, with a focus on 15th and 16th century England. Her latest book is Shadow King: The Life and Death of Henry VI. You can visit her website or follow her on Twitter @History_Lauren
