On this day, 550 years ago, the Second Battle of St Albans was fought...

With a nod to the fact that this blog was originally created to add weight and substance to my historical novels, (since then, it’s all rather descended into chaos) I thought I would start a “mini-series” of “on this day” type-entries.

Earl of Warwick's army was defeated by a Lancastrian force under Queen Margaret, who recovered control of her husband, King Henry VI. And yes, this battle will feature in the third in the Jack Templeman series, yet to be written…
