Henry VI, Part 2 (a/k/a The Second Part of King Henry VI, or, The First Part of the Contention betwixt the Two Famous Houses of York and Lancaster): The second of William Shakespeare's plays about the War of the Roses between the Houses of Lancaster and York for the English crown (preceded and followed chronologically, though probably not written in that order, by Henry VI, Part 1, Henry VI, Part 3, and Richard III).

Taken as a whole, Shakespeare's Histories trace many of the pivotal moments of the history of the British monarchy from the end of King Richard II's reign through that of Henry IV (Henry Bolingbroke) -- who had deposed his cousin Richard II -- as well as Henry IV's successors Henry V and Henry VI, the War of the Roses, and finally the reign of Richard III, who was defeated by the founder of the Tudor monarchy, Henry VII (formerly the Earl of Richmond), to whom, in turn, an ancestor of Shakespeare's rendered services remembered in the family's heraldic motto, Non sanz droict (not without right).
