Probably more like 3.5 stars.

I read this for research for a history essay for uni. Wolffe provides an extremely detailed and comprehensive look at a king whom I've tended to ignore or gloss over due to my Yorkist tendencies in the ensuing Wars of the Roses. (That being said, I find his queen, Margaret of Anjou, an incredibly fascinating woman.)

The rating of only 3.5 stars is mostly due to the fact that at times I found myself overwhelmed by the incredible amount of information that was given, o

I have to read certain historical biographies for my current research, but in my own geeky way, I have to admit that most biographies, even ones of 14th/15th c kings of England, can be pretty cool. Can you imagine being king of England AND France before you were 10? Plus, all of these odd spiritual/supernatural legends sprouted up around this young king, especially after his death. I don't know... it's just so strange to think about.

This book was interesting, but as so many other reviewers, academic and general alike, have stated, it is out of date. The best go to research for Henry VI now is Ralph Griffiths Reign of Henry VI. While Wolffe's book remains relevant in some areas, as a general biography of Henry and history of his reign, it has been eclipsed by other research.
