The Battle of Shrewsbury was one of the most important and bloodiest battles in Britain, having a significant impact on the course of English and French history.

The conflict took place on Sunday July 21, 1403, between an army led by the Lancastrian king, Henry IV, and a rebel army led by Henry “Harry Hotspur” Percy from Northumberland.
