About the Author

Lauren Johnson is a historian with a first-class degree from Oxford University. She is the author of So Great a Prince, a history of the accession of King Henry VIII, also available from Pegasus Books. She lives in England.


A well-crafted, moving account of a tragic reign, which treats its shadowy king with empathy and compassion.--Michael K. Jones, author of The Black Prince
Johnson's intense look at the earthly failures that defined Henry VI's unpopular reign--and the transformation of a medieval king's fatal flaws into the basis for a devoted posthumous following--is a treat for committed Anglophiles.
Wonderful. Exactly the kind of immensely readable popular biography of Henry VI that this king has mostly lacked, lost in the roster of his far more dynamic royal brothers and sisters. [Readers] will know the man as well as any biographer has yet made possible.-- (05/13/2019)
Enthralling. Johnson gives us a convincing picture of Henry, a gentle man unsuited to his position, and of his bloody and brutal times. The Shadow King is a scholarly work aimed at the common reader--and the common reader is richly rewarded.-- (05/30/2019)
A complex, yet highly readable and immaculately researched biography for those interested in British royalty and medieval history.
