Henry Bolingbroke was a grandson of Edward III. Henry's father, John of Gaunt, was Edward III's third surviving son and duke of Lancaster. Henry married Mary de Bohun in 1381, and together they had six children. Serious health problems plagued him during the last years of his life, including a severe skin disease, which may have been leprosy. While Henry's father enjoyed a relatively stable relationship with Richard II, who was Henry's first cousin, Henry's was more tumultuous. For example, he became involved in the rebellion of the Lords Appellant in 1387. As the king's cousin, though, he was spared execution and was instead made Duke of Hereford. Over the next years Henry saw much of Europe. He campaigned with the Teutonic knights and made a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. Then in 1398 a remark of Henry's was interpreted as treason. The matter was initially supposed to be resolved through a duel of honor. However, Richard II banished Henry from England--with the approval and support of J...
Henry's reign had several rebellions, some intended to put Richard back on the throne--some didn't believe he was actually dead. These rebellions in Richard's name were common at the beginning of the reign and then again in the last year. The two major rebellions of the reign were in Wales and Northumberland. In Wales the rising was led by Owain Glyndwr (Glendower) who declared himself Prince of Wales in 1400. What began as a dispute with an English neighbor became a full-scale rising, which was eventually put down by Henry of Monmouth, Henry IV's eldest son and the future Henry V. In Northumberland the Percy family tried three times to overthrow Henry IV between 1402 and 1408. The elder Henry Percy was the first earl of Northumberland and one of the noblemen responsible for defending northern England from the Scots. He helped Henry IV overthrow Richard II, and then he turned on Henry IV. The first attempt failed when Henry IV's army defeated that of Henry 'Hotspur' Percy at the Bat...
One key part of Henry's reign was the renewal of the war with France. One reason Henry IV was able to garner aristocratic support in England was the promise of a return to fighting in France, which provided the aristocracy with a way to gain wealth and glory. They also wished to defend--and increase if possible--England's lands in France. Richard II, particularly after marrying a French princess, had sharply curtailed England's military activities on the continent. Henry IV, however, led England back into the war. His efforts were not entirely successful, and it was his son Henry of Monmouth who would find military glory in France as Henry V.
