Royal Blood - Print from a painting of Henry VI at the Battle of St. Albans, 1455, by Graham Turner Royal Blood Ref: Gic-G362

As the Earl of Warwick's troops rain arrows down on them, and the Duke of York's men advance from the opposite direction, King Henry VI is 'hurte in the necke wythe an arrowe' as he finds himself exposed in the centre of the Yorkist assault at St. Albans.

Behind him the Duke of Buckingham is wounded 'with an arrowe in the vysage (face)', as were others of the king's entourage; 'the Lord of Stafford in the hond, with an arowe; the Lord of Dorsette, sore hurt that he myght not go, but he was caryede hom in a cart; and Wenlok, Knyght, in lyke wyse in a carte sore hurt; and other diverse knyghtes and squyers sore hurt.' (Paston Letters)

Although famously a most unwarlike king, Gregory's chronicle records that at St. Albans 'Kyng Harry was in harnys (full suit of armour) hys owne propyr person'. The same account also says that the Earl of Wiltshire 'sette the kyngys baner agayne an howse ende and fought manly with the helys (heels)' - in other words, he ran away, an action he would repeat at the Battle of Mortimer's Cross six years later.
