A dramatization by Shakespeare of King Henry VI's early days as king and the beginning of the long civil wars between the Houses of York and Lancaster. In the war with France, England is being driven off French soil. True to the popular view of the time, the French heroine Joan of Arc is characterized as a "minister of hell" and a wanton.
