Henry IV (1367–1413) was King of England 1399-1413. The donor of the window, Bishop Thomas Langley, served as a royal counsellor and diplomat to Henry IV, and later to his son and grandson. The king is shown kneeling before a prayer-desk (prie-dieu), facing the large figure of St Cuthbert, with his hands raised in prayer.
