 Henry VI, part 1 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
King Henry VI Part 1 is one of the "history" plays of William Shakespeare.
There is evidence that the first part of Henry VI was in fact written after the second and the third parts (which were originally published under different names), and Part 1 may therefore be thought of as a 'prequel'.
In addition, there is strong stylistic evidence that Part 1 is not by Shakespeare alone, but was co-written by a team of three or more playwrights whose identities remain unknown (although Thomas Nashe is one possibility).
