[Answer] What was made illegal by King Henry VI in England in 1439?

We have looked all around the web to find the most relevant answer to your query: 

What was made illegal by King Henry VI in England in 1439?

  • Kissing:On July 16, 1439, King Henry VI of England issued a proclamation that banned kissing. The ban was put in place by the King to prevent the spread of the plague. When the first cases of the plague broke out in England, King Henry VI decided to be proactive. In a decree sweeping the country, he banned all kissing until plague season had passed. His reasoning? If your lips were kept chaste, the "small specks" of plague would not spread. About 30% of England's population died of the Black Death that year despite Henry's anti-kissing stance.
