James Ross Û 7 review Ful life including Henry's deposition at the hands of Edward IV and his eventual return to the thron. A sympathetic biography of one of England's most unsuccessful monarchs Ross examines Henry's famous piety as well as his periods of mental illness likely inherited from his maternal grandfather King Charles VI the mad of France Henry VI emerges as neither an entirely passive figure nor a consistently active monarch Henry was easily influenced by his courtiers and ueen and prone to abrupt changes in policy from excessive generosity to severe repression Perhaps the most poignant moment in the book is the evidence that Henry was aware of his own shortcomings as monarch When asked if he wished to be buried next his father Henry V the victor of the Battle of Agincourt Henry VI stated Nay let him alone he lieth like a noble prince I will not trouble him
