Title : Seditious Activities: The Conspiracy of Maud de Vere, Countess of Oxford, 1403-4 [In 1403-04 Maud de Vere, dowager countess of Oxford, involved herself in an attempt to restore "Richard II" (actually an impostor) to the English throne. There is no obvious reason for this conspiracy except belief in the pseudo-Richard as true king. Maud was pardoned on the request of Queen Joan, the wife of Henry IV. This may have been an effort by Henry to place his new wife in high relief as a source of pardons. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
