Pole, William de la

English military commander and statesman who from 1443 to 1450 dominated the government of the weak king Henry VI (ruled 1422-61 and 1470-71). He was popularly, although probably unjustly, held responsible for England's defeats in the late stages of the Hundred Years' War (1337-1453) against France.
