The reign of the English King Henry VI was a troubled one. He became king at a very early age, and when he became old enough to rule, he wasn't very interested in politics. He became very religious and let trusted nobles run his court as he'd rather be a man of God than the man that sits on the throne. He married Margaret of Anjou who was almost his polar opposite, and she proved to be a strong and capable leader. However it would be Henry VI's poor leadership and bouts of insanity that would end up having him lose the throne to his cousin (Edward IV) in the House of York during the War of the Roses.
