View Categories Home > Catalog > Medieval & Modern Coins > England > SH87710Anglo-Gallic, Henry VI de Lancastre, King of France and England, 1422 - 1453 In 1422, the year old king of England inherited the French throne through his mad grandfather Charles VI of France; the iconography of this type represents the unification of the two nations. Ten years later Joan of Arc would make an appearance which would eventually loosen the English grip on France until by 1436 only Normandy and part of Maine remained in Henry's control.
