This book is an edition of eight late fourteenth- and early
fifteenth-century Latin texts that chronicle and comment on events
that led, in 1399, to the deposition of King Richard II of England
and the accession of Henry, Duke of Lancaster, as King Henry IV.
All the texts but one are edited from contemporary manuscripts.
The main text, the Record and Process of the Renunciation and Deposition of Richard II, is the official parliamentary record of the means by which Richard II was removed from the throne in 1399 and Henry IV put in his place.
