PRE FACE.

When our fifth Henry was engaged in his brilliant career, public attention was so completely absorbed by the eventful proceedings in France, that even the arrest and imprisonment of the queen dowager failed to excite notice or inquiry. This strange proceeding is, however, related as follows by Walsingham.

A. D. 1418. This year the king's step-mother, Queen Joanna, being accused by some of certain malefices, which were considered injurious to the king, (all her attendants being sent away) was committed to the charge of Pelham, who, with nine chosen followers, conveyed her to Pevensey castle, to be under his guardianship.-Walsingham, History of Henry V.
