King Henry VI, Part 3

by William Shakespeare

King Henry VI, Part 3 is Shakespeare's play on the death of Henry VI and the end of the house of Lancaster's reign on the English throne.

Bibliographic notes

As with Shakespeare's other plays, there is no "original" manuscript or author-supervised publication of King Henry VI, Part 3. The earliest publication of the play known to exist, differing substantially from later texts, is an octavo edition published in 1595. A quarto edition followed in 1600, and the play appeared in William Jaggard's "false folio" in 1619 as well as the First Folio in 1623. The First Folio is the first publication known to refer to the play as the "third part" of the drama of Henry VI. Most modern editions rely primarily on the First Folio text.
