About this work

Description

Gough, loc. cit., doubts the identification of the subject as the marriage of Henry VI and Margaret of Anjou, on the ground of anachronisms in the costumes; raises the possibility of it showing the marriage of Henry V with Catherine of Valois at Troyes; adduces objections to the latter theory also; and finally leaves the question open. The provenance of the window is traced to one of the two churches in Rollright, Oxfordshire
