British Monarch. The Queen consort of King Henry VI, she was the daughter of Rene I, duke of Anjou and King of Naples and Sicily, and Isabella of Lorraine. She married Henry in 1445, and soon asserted her influence at court. She played a key role in the Wars of the Roses, leading Lancastrian forces in defense of her husband and only child Edward, Prince of Wales, and often devising grand strategies. She was learned and fierce, and devoted to hunting and reading. Upon the capture and death of her son in 1471, she remained a captive of King Edward IV until her release was arranged by King Louis XI of France. She returned to France and lived the rest of her life in relative poverty. (bio by: Kristen Conrad)
