Civil strife, bloody battles and power struggles provide the backdrop for Shakespeare's compelling depiction of a divided nation and a king in turmoil. Henry VI Part II - England's Fall Jack Cade leads an anarchic uprising against Henry VI, made powerless by the warring factions of his new wife, Margaret of Anjou, and the House of York, as England descends deeper into bloody civil strife
