King Henry VI Part 2 is a historical play by William Shakespeare about Henry VI of England. The play is the second in a series of three plays about Henry VI and concerns itself with the internal conflicts of English nobility before the War of Roses. King Henry VI marries Margaret of Anjou and, through her, various nobles attempt to wrest the thrown from Henry. The actors take sides between the House of York and Henry's House of Lancaster, culminating in a battle and defeat for Henry's allies.
King Henry VI Part 2 is a history play by William Shakespeare, originally known as The First Part of the Contention betwixt the Two Famous Houses of York and Lancaster. It was probably written ca. 1590-91 as the second part of the trilogy on Henry VI of England and is often grouped together with Richard III as a tetralogy on The Wars of the Roses, the success of which established Shakespeare's reputation as a playwright.
And this the royalty of Albion's king?
And care not who they sting in his revenge.
And he but naked, though lock'd up in steel,
Whose conscience with injustice is corrupted.
And let us all to meditation.
