Article is difficult to read and follow[edit]

This article could stand a good editor. It is turgid and difficult to follow some of this text. The opening summary is longer than the whole article was a few years ago. There are lengthy passages that seem out of focus. I don't edit Wikipedia any more because I am tired of the fights. But whoever owns this page ought to consider having some help editing it for readability --Blue Tie (talk) 00:33, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

Ransom 1420 - Return 1424[edit]

is there any specially reason why he stayed 4 years in England even if the Ransom was payed? I think it would be a good idea telling this. -- Hartmann Schedel Prost 12:00, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

Nominee for GA[edit]

Almost 3 weeks ago, I nominated this article for GA quality, and it has yet to reach reviews to see if it deserves GA status. Is there anyone who would like to review this? I personally didn't work on this article, but felt that it deserved critique from the best editors Wikipedia could assemble. Please contact me as soon as you can, and thanks for readingLeftAire (talk) 15:37, 28 February 2012 (UTC)


I am reverting you for the last time before I take this to the Admin noticeboard.

Answering your edit summery: 1. I did not write that he WAS most of the time at the English court & 2. As I said before, produce a source to back up your misinformed opinions regarding his enforced attendance with Henry V's forces; nowhere is it said that he "loved Henry V" and source your assertion that he was detained at the Tower of London for almost 10 years.--Bill Reid | (talk) 19:13, 22 May 2013 (UTC)
