Medieval History, and Tudors Too!
Awww, poor Henry IV! Odd that Henrys III and VI got votes and he didn't!Hmmm, I might have to add a 'favourite King Edward' poll to my blog...;)
I was the one who voted for Henry I. Because Elizabeth Chadwick recently posted on what he did to some bankers who had misbehaved:http://livingthehistoryelizabethchadwick.blogspot.com/2009/12/medieval-monday-dealing-with-bankers.htmland I just thought 'what a guy.'
Nice to see you give a shout out to Ian Mortimer's terrific biography of Henry IV. I read the book last summer and it really changed my view of the ultimately tragic, unfairly overlooked (yes, here's looking at you, Thomas Costain) and maligned sovereign.
You know that you now will have to write a blogpost to rehabilitate poor neglected Henry IV. :)My favourite Henrys aka Heinrichs are Heinrich the Lion Duke of Saxony, and Emperor Heinrich IV (of Canossa fame) - see there you got one vote. :) Though the English Henry II is interesting, too.
Poor old Henry IV - sounds like he needs the number of a good PR firm!
I voted for Henry VII!
