He had, he told the French chronicler Commynes, been on the run since the age of five; he had had none of the training in English government, justice and war that had, for instance, been Henry V’s kingly apprenticeship. What he did have, however, was a hard upbringing in the realities of fifteenth-century diplomacy and politics. He had studied the kingship of the French kings at first hand.

This may have damaged local harmony in the short term but, crucially, in the long term reinforced the view that the crown was the ultimate authority. Moreover, it is by no means apparent that the growth of the royal affinity in the localities was a bad thing for local order and government everywhere.
