Thank you Inga for your reply.

It is interesting that Henry Bolingbroke took part in the siege of Vilnius of 1390. He would have been a young man of around 24 years old at the time.

Sir Thomas Erpingham also appears to have joined Henry. Sir Thomas Erpingham fought at Agincourt.

I guess that that their occupation was as professional soldiers.

Henry Bolingbroke's actions in deposing Richard 11 and taking the throne and then Richard's subequent murder were the causes that started the war between the houses of Lancaster and York (Wars of the Roses).

Henry Bolingbroke (Henry 1V of the house of Lancaster) features in Shakespeare's plays as does Sir Thomas Erpingham.

Thank you

Kind regards
