Henry VI was King of Anglia briefly in the early 18th century. His reign 'barely registered' on the national consciousness according to various contemporaries. James XI of Scotland, who met him on three occasions called him 'exceedingly dull and exceedingly fat'.
Henry and Charlotte's only child, Henry would succeed him. The new king was only 3 months old at this point beginning a long regency, first under his mother, then his grandmother. The Regency would prove crucial in forging a country ruled by the authority of the Witenage rather than a monarch.
