Henry VI, Part 1

William Shakespeare

The First Part of King Henry the Sixth is one of Shakespeare's history plays, believed written in approximately 1588-1590. It is the first in the cycle of four plays often referred to as "The First Tetralogy".


The play opens in the aftermath of the death of King Henry V of England (although it was written before Shakespeare's play, Henry V). News reaches England of military setbacks in France, and the scene shifts across the English Channel, to Orleans, where "La Pucelle" (Joan of Arc) is encouraging the Dauphin to resist. She defeats an English army led by Talbot (Sir John Talbot, 1st Earl of Shrewsbury).
