Didn't stop the Lancasters in OTL. Also if Wooferton, the Battle in Wales and Siege/Battle of Ludlow and the victory and Calais all happen in this time period, people are going to question if the Lord supports them. Also holding London didn't help the Yorks during the readeption and Bosworth campaign.I mean, the Yorks still hold London
1. Madman is a poor term for Henry, a better term is mentally ill. 2. With how pious he is and all the victories he is enjoying would it be that much of a stretch to say he is?Like the madman hiding out in Wales because he managed to lose his kingdom to a vassal is divinely blessed.
In medieval Europe, 0 difference.1. Madman is a poor term for Henry, a better term is mentally ill. 2. With how pious he is and all the victories he is enjoying would it be that much of a stretch to say he is?
He wasn't made a blessed. A cult emerged following his death but afaik no formal what's it called occured.I suppose, though if Henry is still made a Blessed ITTL then not really.
Wait is Burgundy officially allied with Yorks? I must've missed that bit then. Also don't worry, Divine Favour is never a straightforward matterDespite his victory at Wooferton, he's practically lost the midlands, his victory at Wales didn't net him any territorial gains, the battle/seige of Ludlow hasn't happened, the victory at Calais wasn't against the Yorkists, he's lost London, he's lost Cornwall, he's lost London, he's lost the north, he's lost Ireland, he's lost confidence (if not support) of the Scottish, he's lost support of the French. He's politically isolated on the international front aside from maybe Brittany (maybe) and Burgundy (I'll point out that Philip le bon is currently allied with the Yorks as per otl, and isn't nearly idiotic enough to ditch em for the Lancasters when the Yorks have all major ports and thus control a good chunk of his economy), and now he has the greatest English general of the day coming at him.
For all the "divine favor" he supposedly has, Henry's seriously fucked.
Oops, that's my mistake. I remember reading he was remembered as a Blessed Martyr, and must've assumed the Blessed was literal.He wasn't made a blessed. A cult emerged following his death but afaik no formal what's it called occured.
Wow, loved this last update. Louis XI dead and Brittany's beng cautious - I really hope the Duke won't join Lancastrian forces. By the way, is the Duke Francis II as OTL? There were so many dukes in OTL 1450s-60s, English butterflies could well have changed that ITTL.
There was a plan to have Charles and Mary of Burgundy be married, wonder if it will happen here too..
Poor Margaret! She lost her kingdom, is living in a foreign place, her husband is fighting a war very far from her and she has to raise their child alone, really hope she can get some good news or at least a good ending for her.
