King Richard II

Richard II of Bordeaux was the son of the Joan, Fair Maid of Kent, who was first married to Sir Thomas de Holande, Knight of the Royal Garter, and Early of Kent. The rule of Richard II was perceived as weak. Henry Bolingbroke overtook the palace and crowned himself King Edward IV. Richard II was put in prison and later killed. The second in line to the throne was John Hollande, son of Sir Thomas and Joan Plantagenet. John was sought out and murdered. John's son, Henry Holande, second in line to the throne, who was occupying London Tower at the time, the castle having been gifted to his eldest step-brother, John Holande his step-father, Prince Edward, the Black Prince. The Yorkists convinced Henry to participate in a war in France, however, was dumped overboard. Eventually, the remaining Holande step-brothers were murdered. And so ended the Plantagenet reign!
