1399: Henry Bolingbroke, banished and deprived of his inheritance by Richard II, returns to claim his rights and deposes the king to become Henry IV of England. He is aided by the powerful lords of Northumberland, expecially by his friend, Harry Perch, nicknamed Hotspur. But there are growing crises in his new kingdom, and Wales is the most pressing and troublesome of all. For although Henry's son, prince Hal, is the nominal Prince of Wales, the Welsh have a prince of their own blood in Owen Glendower, and they are swift to rally to his rebellious call to arms.
