The title says it all, what if Henry VI was killed at the First Battle of St Albans? IIRC, he was wounded by an arrow in OTL, so let’s say he is less lucky here and the arrow kills him. How does this affect the Yorkist cause? In OTL Richard of York was able to obtain a pardon from Henry VI following the battle, freeing him and his allies from all charges of treason. Obviously here, he will not get that pardon and is, by law a traitor to the English throne. So might York go for broke and attempt to seize the crown as a last ditch effort to save his skin? Who becomes regent for the 2-year old Edward of Westminster (my guess is Buckingham gets it). Might a civil war erupt and if so who comes out on top?
