(p.23) 2 Crown and Higher Nobility in Late Fourteenth−Century England
The Politics of Magnate Power


Oxford University Press

This chapter summarises the relationship between the crown and the higher nobility during the reign of Richard II. It explores how the upsurge of political violence in this reign resulted in major changes to the ranks of the upper nobility and its land-holding. Emphasis is placed on the actions of Richard II's opponents in 1386-8, notably his uncle the duke of Gloucester, the earls of Arundel, Warwick, Nottingham and Derby, known as the Appellants. It notes the bitter legacy left by the appellant campaign of 1386-8, and how Richard II sought to rebuild his authority around new trusted nobles, such as the Holand Family, Edward of York, William Lescrope, and Thomas Despenser.

Keywords:   appellants, Richard II, Gloucester, Arundel, Warwick, Nottingham, Derby
