Battle of Shrewsbury


2003 marks the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Shrewsbury, a relatively minor squabble between a usurper king and a group of northern nobles who felt they had not been adequately rewarded for their support. It is chiefly remembered because of its gruesome aftermath when the exasperated victor took drastic steps to deal with a rumour that threatened his hold on the throne.
