Henry V

Jacquetta was the daughter of Count Peter of Luxembourg. When she was 17 she married John of Lancaster, Henry V’s brother. He died two years later and the marriage was childless. Sir Richard Woodville was John’s chamberlain and accompanied the young widow back to England from Normandy. On the voyage they fell in love and were married in secret. This caused a huge scandal at the time, as Richard was a commoner. They were fined £1000 as they had not sought permission from King Henry VI.
