'''''Henry VI''''' refers to a trilogy of plays describing the end of UsefulNotes/TheHundredYearsWar and the outbreak of the UsefulNotes/WarsOfTheRoses. The plays were written very early in Shakespeare's career, and seem to have gained some immediate success (and even envy on the part of his rival dramatists). These early plays tend to be episodic in plot and sometimes overly ornate in language, but they nevertheless give an early indication of the powerful use that Shakespeare would make of English history in his later "chronicle plays." The general theme is that division brings disaster; these plays, performed as a unit with the likewise early ''Theatre/RichardIII'', constitute a plea for national unity under TheHouseOfTudor.
