In 1441, Eleanor Cobham, Duchess of Gloucester was found guilty of heresy and sorcery against King Henry VI, as part of a political plot to discredit her husband, Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester, who was the next in line to the throne. Eleanor was forced to divorce Gloucester, ordered to do public penance, and spent the rest of her life in prison.
