Signing of a treaty between King Henry VI and Richard of York, 3rd Duke of York, also known as Richard Plantagenet in Westminster Hall. Richard served in various offices of state in Ireland, France, and England - a country he ultimately governed as Lord Protector during the madness of King Henry VI. His conflicts with Henry's wife, Margaret of Anjou, and other members of Henry's court, not to mention his competing claim on the throne, were a major cause of the Wars of the Roses.

Richard eventually attempted to take the throne, but was dissuaded, although it was agreed that he would become king on Henry's death, but within a few weeks of securing this agreement, he died in battle.
