League of the Public Weal
King Louis the Prudent of France had always been at odds with his father, the now deceased King Charles the 7th. He had even engaged in open rebellion in 1440, but now that Louis is King of France, he is having trouble with the nobles. The King has continued to whittle away at the holdings of the Duke Burgundy, who is the father of Charles the Bold. Charles was the brother-in-law and friend of Louis before he was king. Perhaps Charles believed that their friendship would count when Louis became king, but it was not to be. Charles has organized some of the nobles into the League of the Public Weal, in order to oppose the king's centralization of government. The League prefers the old-time feudal lord system that was in place prior to the 100 Years' War. The King will give in to the League for a time, but the League will die out along with the feudal system.   
The Former King is Captured
King Edward the 4th of England and the House of York has finally caught up the former King Henry the 6th of the House of Lancaster in northwest England. He is brought to the Tower of London where he is waited upon by a cousin of Queen Elizabeth... a woman who was once a Lancaster supporter. King Henry will be treated well for a time and live in the Tower for several years until he is no longer useful... alive. Then he will die mysteriously.

He was held in the Tower of London; he may have slipped into mental illness once again. Jacquetta's own grandson, Thomas Grey, was among the five members of the royal household appointed to wait on her former king."”
