Tis the Kingmaker's birthday today

The most dramatickal Plantagenet stuff in in Dec what with Becket & all.  I can't get over that these 4 dudes heard Henry gnawing the rushes over Becket & thunk, hey, betcha Kingy'd really like us if we caught the next boat to England & stuck some blades in that turbulent priest.  WTF were they thinkin?

Then there's Eleanor's nice coronation & John's Xmas BD, crazy old Henry VIs BD & coronation, poor Anne Neville traded off to the Lancastrians by Daddy over those Woodvilles, plus that whole Wakefield WOTR disaster.  What was Richard of York thinkin?  I'd have stayed snug behind my walls & thumbed my nose at them pesky Lancastrians.  Tis even more surprising of a decision since York seemed to be such a waffler otherwise.  Poor old Salisbury.

And methinks Radcot Bridge be the opening WOTR sally, really, acuz it ticked off Richard II & paved the way for that whole Lancastrian usurpation thing they did so well LOL
