Notes


Marquis of Dorset, Duke of Somerset. "Younger son and held military command in the French wars from 1431 to 1453. Married Alianor de Beauchamp without license, but pardoned 7 Mar 1438.


He was created Earl of Dorset on 28 Aug 1441, and was summoned to Parliament from 13 Jan 1444/5. He was created Duke of Somerset on 31 Mar 1448. He was slain on the Lancastrian side at the first Battle of St. Albans. "His blood was the first shed in the war of the Roses, which proved fatal to his sons and ended the male line of the Beauforts". (said to have been slain by Warwick; he was accused by the Duke of York of having been the sole cause of the civil war; he was marked by extreme avarice, although a very rich man, being the heir of his uncle Henry.)"

"also called (1444-48) 4TH EARL OF SOMERSET, English nobleman and Lancastrian leader whose quarrel with Richard, duke of York, helped precipitate the Wars of the Roses (1455-85) between the houses of Lancaster and York.
He was a member of the Beaufort family, which in the 1430s obtained control--with William de la Pole, duke of Suffolk--of the government of the weak king Henry VI (ruled 1422-61 and 1470-71). He was created earl of Dorset in 1441 and inherited the earldom of Somerset from his brother in 1444. A veteran of the English campaigns in France, Beaufort was appointed captain general in France in 1447, and in the following year he was created duke of Somerset.
His poor leadership was largely responsible for the reconquest of Normandy by the French in 1449-50. Public indignation over this disaster brought about the fall of Suffolk, but Somerset survived the storm and became Henry's chief minister. His unrelenting enemy was the powerful Richard, duke of York. Following Henry's mental collapse in July 1453, Parliament imprisoned Somerset (c. December 1453) and appointed York lord protector of the realm. The King recovered in December 1454, however, and shortly thereafter Somerset was restored to his former role in government. York then resorted to arms, and in May 1455 Somerset was killed by York's troops at the Battle of St. Albans."
