.7 He was King of England: [Ashley, pp. 497-498] EDGAR THE ATHELING, 14 October-late November/early December 1066. Edgar was proclaimed king by the witan after the death of HAROLD II at Senlac Hill on 14 October 1066, though he was never crowned and submitted to WILLIAM (I) eight weeks later. He was only about thirteen or fourteen years old. He was the grandson of EDMUND IRONSIDE. His father, known as Edward the Exile, had been banished from England by CANUTE in 1016 when only a few months old. Rather than kill him on English soil, Canute's idea was to despatch him to Russia to be killed by the Viking dukes of Novgorod. This did not happen. Instead Edward made his way to Hungary and the court of King Stephen, where he remained until in 1054 EDWARD THE CONFESSOR learned he was alive and summoned him back to England. He returned in 1057 with his young children, but within days had died, probably murdered by order of Harold. Edward raised his nephew's children, Edgar, Margaret and Christina and nominated the young atheling as his heir. However he was too young at the time of Edward's death in January 1066 to defend the country against impending invasion, and his election as king after Harold's death was no more than a token of defiance. Edgar relied for his support upon Archbishop Stigand and upon Earls Edwin and Morcar and, when this weakened, Edgar was forced to submit to William at Berkhamstead in either late November or early December 1066.
William treated Edgar well. He kept him in his custody eventually taking him back to his court in Normandy. However, Edgar joined in the rebellion of the earls Edwin and Morcar in 1068 and, though defeated, he fled to the court of MALCOLM III of Scotland. The next year Malcolm married Edgar's sister Margaret, and agreed to support Edgar in his attempt to claim the English crown. Edgar now made common cause with Swein, king of Denmark and nephew of CANUTE, who believed he was the rightful king of England. Their combined forces invaded England in 1069. They captured York, but did not proclaim the independence of Northumbria. William marched on the north, devastating the land as he went. He paid the Danes to leave, whilst Edgar fled to Scotland. He remained in refuge there until 1072 when William reached a treaty with Malcolm which included the exile of Edgar. Edgar eventually made his peace with William in 1074 but he never fully gave up his dreams of regaining the throne of England. He supported Robert, duke of Normandy, against WILLIAM II in 1091 and again found himself seeking refuge in Scotland. He also supported his nephew, EDGAR, in gaining the Scottish throne. In 1099 he set off on crusade, and was later taken prisoner at Tinchebrai in 1106 fighting for Duke Robert against HENRY I. He returned to England where Henry pardoned him, and he retired to his country estate in Hertfordshire. His niece Edith (renamed Matilda) had married Henry I in 1100. Edgar is believed to have travelled to Scotland late in life, perhaps around the year 1120, and was still alive in 1125, but may have died soon after, in his early seventies. By then he was forgotten by most and is remembered now only as the "lost king" of England. between 14 October 1066 and 10 December 1066.8

     DEATH     23 Dec 1392 (aged 36–37), Kings Langley, Dacorum Borough, Hertfordshire, England
     Infanta Isabella of Castile, Duchess of York was the daughter of King Peter of Castile and María de Padilla. She was a younger sister of Constance, Duchess of Lancaster.
     On March 1, 1372, Isabella married Edmund of Langley, 1st Duke of York, he was the fourth son of Edward III of England and Philippa of Hainault, at Wallingford, England. As a result of her marriage, she became the first of a total of eleven women who became Duchess of York. They had three children:
** Edward of Norwich, 2nd Duke of York (1373 – 25 October 1415).
** Constance of York (1374 – 29 November 1416). Married Thomas le Despenser and was mother of Isabel le Despenser, Countess of Worcester and Warwick.
** Richard of Conisburgh, 3rd Earl of Cambridge (1375 – 5 August 1415).
     She was named a Lady Companion of the Order of the Garter in 1378. Isabella died 23 December 1392 and on 14 January 1393 was buried in Kings Langley Manor House in Hertfordshire, England.
     Isabel lies entombed with her husband in King's Langley. By the terms of her will, dated December 6, 1392, she asked that a hundred trentals and a hundred sauters were to be said for her soul, and four priests, or one at least, were to sing for her by the space of four years. Upon the day of her burial her best horse was to be delivered for her mortuary. She bequeathed to the King her heart of pearls; to the Duke of Lancaster, a tablet of jasper, given her by the King of Armenia; to her son Edward, her crown, to remain to his heirs; to Constance le Despencer, her daughter, a fret of pearls; to the Duchess of Gloucester, her tablet of gold with images, and also her sauter with the arms of Northampton; and to the King the residue of her goods, in trust that he should allow his godson Richard, her younger son, an annuity of 500 marks for life, a trust which the King, out of the great respect he bore to her, accepted.
     Originally interred in the Church of the Friary at Langley, the remains of the Duke and his wife were brought to All Saint's, King's Langley, about the year 1574.
     The couple were destined for a second exhumation. On November 22, 1877, Professor George Rolleston, M.D. The professor was expecting to find two remains instead he found three. The remains are those of Isabella of Castile, her husband Edmund of Langley and the third are those of their daughter in law Anne Mortimer

Jean V (?) Duc de Bretagne was buried after 1 November 1399 at Saint-Pierre Cathedral, Nantes, Departement de la Loire-Atlantique, Pays de la Loire, France (now).4
      ; per van de Pas: "Son of Jean IV, duc de Bretagne (Jean de Montfort), and Jeanne of Flanders, Jean was born in 1339. He was educated at the court of Edward III of England, and in 1361 at Woodstock he married the king's daughter Mary; however she died shortly afterwards.

In 1364 he succeeded his father as duke of Brittany. He ended the War of the Breton Succession in September 1364 by defeating the rival claimant to the duchy, Charles de Châtillon de Blois at Auray; he was recognised as duke of Brittany by King Charles V of France in the Treaty of Guérande on 12 April 1365.

In May 1366 in London he married Lady Joan de Holland but this marriage was also childless. Jean secretly aided Edward's cause in 1370, giving the English soldier Robert Knowles a haven in Brittany when Knowles faced defeat at the hands of French forces. In 1372, after making an alliance with Edward, Jean was granted the earldom of Richmond for allowing the English to garrison his fortresses in Brittany.

After the French drove the English from most of the duchy, Jean fled to England in April 1373. Charles V's confiscation of Jean's property in 1378 met with condemnation from the people of Brittany, but Jean lost their support when he made an alliance with King Richard II of England in 1380. He managed to reverse his loss by making peace with the regents for King Charles VI through the second Treaty of Guérande on 15 January 1381.

In 1386 he married Jeanne de Navarre, daughter of Charles II 'the Bad', king of Navarre, and Jeanne de France. They had eight children of whom three sons and three daughters would have progeny. In 1392 he was again in ill repute with the crown for instigating an assassination attempt on Charles VI's constable of France, Olivier V de Clisson, with whom he had had a long personal feud. Jean died in Nantes on 1 November 1399. In Winchester Cathedral on 7 February 1403 Jean's widow Jeanne de Navarre married Henry IV, king of England."9

When the King kept Christmas 1389 at Woodstock, John Hastings, 3rd Earl of Pembroke, was mortally injured in practising for a tournament. Wishing to try his horse, he rode a course against Sir John de St.John. As instructed by the Earl's tutor, St.John held his lance to the side; one end stuck in the ground, the other side sticking up. Pembroke's horse carried him violently against the point which pierced him near the genitals and lacerated his body. [end quote]18

     He was King's Lieutenant in Normandy, Captain of Mantes, Lieutenant of Ireland.3

; Per Genealogics:
     "In 1398 aged only six when his father was killed, he became Earl of March and Ulster. He was recognised as heir to the throne by the partisans of Richard II but, in October 1399, in the first Parliament of Henry IV, the king's son was proclaimed heir. Henry IV kept Edmund and his brother, Roger, prisoners at Windsor but did not illtreat them.
     "In 1401 Edmund was recognised as coheir to his aunt, Philippa, Countess of Pembroke; then in 1409 as that of his uncle Edmund Holand, Earl of Kent. In July 1402 he and his brother were transferred to Berkhampstead Castle to be brought up with the King's children, John and Philippa.
     "On 13 February 1405 while at Windsor, an attempt was made to kidnap the two brothers and take them to Wales. However, they were quickly recaptured and placed in charge of Richard, Lord Grey of Codnor, till 1409, when young Prince Henry took charge of them.
     "On his accession in 1413 Henry V released Edmund and, on 9 June 1413, gave him livery of his estates when he did homage and took his seat in Parliament. In 1414 he founded a college of secular canons at Stoke-by-Clare, Suffolk. On 16 April 1415 he was present at the Council which decided on war with France.
     "In 1415 his brother-in-law, Richard, Earl of Cambridge, sought to take him to Wales and proclaim him king; but Edmund revealed the plot to Henry V, who accepted his protestations of loyalty and placed him on the commission which tried and condemned the Earl of Cambridge.
     "About 1415 he married Anne Stafford but their marriage remained childless. He accompanied the king to France and took part in the siege of Harfleur, where he was attacked by dysentery and sent home. From 1415 onwards he was Justice of the Peace in Essex, Hereford, Salop and Suffolk. On 15 August 1416 he and John, Duke of Bedford, were captains in the expedition to relieve Harfleur, which was cut off by the enemy's fleet, and won a decisive victory.
     "In November 1416 he was a hostage at St. Omer, with the Duke of Gloucester and others, to ensure the safety of Jean, Duke of Burgundy, while visiting Calais. From 1417 to 1418 he served in the army which conquered Normandy. In 1418 he took part in the attack on the Cotentin and besieged St. Lo. On 2 June 1418 he was appointed the king's lieutenant in Normandy.
     "In February 1421 he returned to England with the King and Queen and, on 21 February, bore the Queen's sceptre at her Coronation. In June 1421 he accompanied Henry V on his last expedition to France and, in January 1422, was present at the siege of Meaux. After the king's death he returned to England and was made one of the Council of Regency. On 9 May 1423 he was appointed Lieutenant of Ireland for nine years, though at first acting by deputy.
     "In 1424 when the Lancastrian party became suspicious of his loyalty he was ordered to act in Ireland in person and ships were provided for his passage. On 18 January 1425 he died at Trim of the plague."6

      ; per Verity: "There is contemporary evidence that Duchess Cecily Neville's father-in-law Richard of Conisburgh, Earl of Cambridge, was illegitimate, as historian T.B. Pugh discusses. His mother's affair with John Holland was reported in chronicles in the 1380s (when Richard was conceived and born), and Edmund of Langley, Duke of York, curiously makes no mention or provision at all in his will."11

; 1436-1437: Richard, duke of York (heir to throne), regent in France. He was replaced, after a few successes, by the earl of Warwick (1437-39) but later returned to France (1440-43). Continued rivalry of Beaufort and Gloucester.

1449: (Ireland) Richard of York arrived as viceroy and ingratiated himself equally with colonists and natives. He departed to England in 1450, but on his return made Ireland virtually independent, with the approval of the Irish parliament. English rule was repudiated and a separate coinage was established. Richard continued this policy until his death, but then Edward IV resumed a harsh policy.11

; Faris (1999, pp. 391-393): [quote] RICHARD PLANTAGENET, Knt., K.G., Earl of March and Lord Mortimer of Wigmore, 3rd Duke of York, son and heir, was born on 21 Sep. 1411, and was nephew and heir to Edward of York [of Norwich], 2nd Duke of York (slain at Agincourt in 1415 s.p.) He was married before 18 Oct. 1424 to CECILY NEVILLE, then aged nine, twelfth and youngest daughter of Ralph Neville, 1st Earl of Westmorland (of Magna Carta Surety descent and descendant of Charlemagne), by his second wife Joan Beaufort, legitimised daughter of John of Lancaster [of Gaunt], Duke of Lancaster (son of King Edward III) [see BEAUFORT 10 for her ancestry]. She was born at Raby Castle on 3 May 1415. Richard was knighted at Leicester by the young King Henry VI on 19 May 1426, and was restored that day as 3rd Duke of York, though his father's attainder was not reversed till 1461. He succeeded to the extensive estates of his uncle, Edmund Mortimer, 5th Earl of March, including the lordships of Clare, and Trim and Connaught, in Ireland, becoming the most powerful subject in the realm. He accompanied King Henry VI to France in 1430 and 1431, and was the king's lieutenant in France in 1436 and 1440 for the defence of the English conquests there. He acquired a high reputation by maintaining Normandy almost intact against French attacks. He returned to England and in 1447 became the king's lieutenant in Ireland. Richard assumed the name "Plantagenet" about 1448. Till 1453 King Henry was childless and Richard's prospective claim to the throne was challenged by the Lancastrian Edmund Beaufort, Duke of Somerset [see SOMERSET 9], a descendant of King Edward III through John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster. In the same year the King experienced the first of his episodes of insanity leading to a decline in royal power and the appearance of factionalism among the nobility. With the King unable to govern, Parliament named Richard as Protector of the Realm. The following year the King recovered and Richard was removed from office. When Richard's rival, Edmund Somerset, was released from the Tower, Richard responded by taking up arms. This act began the Wars of the Roses. During most of the civil war, the Yorkists controlled the government. Richard defeated Somerset at St. Albans on 22 May 1455, and became again the Protector of the Realm. After the defeat of the Lancastrians at the Battle of Northampton on 10 July 1460, Richard captured the King, and was then recognized as the King's successor. Queen Margaret, whose son had been disinherited, raised an army which encircled Richard and his followers in his Castle of Sandal near Wakefield. RICHARD PLANTAGENET, Duke of York, was slain on 30 Dec. 1460 leading his men at the base of the Castle. His widow, having survived her sons, Kings Edward IV and Richard III, died at Berkhamstead Castle testate aged eighty on 31 May 1495. They were buried at Fotheringhay (M.I.)

     BIRTH     28 Apr 1442, Rouen, Departement de la Seine-Maritime, Haute-Normandie, France
     DEATH     9 Apr 1483 (aged 40), Westminster, City of Westminster, Greater London, England
     English Monarch. He reigned as King of England from March 4, 1461, until October 3, 1470, and from April 11, 1471, until his death on April 9, 1483. Born the son of Richard, Duke of York, a leading claimant to the throne, and Cicely Neville at Rouen, France. As Henry VI became increasingly less effective, the Duke pressed the claim of the York line for the throne. He was killed in 1460 at the Battle of Wakefield, and Edward succeed him. Edward deposed his cousin Henry VI in 1461. The Earl of Warwick gained control of London and had Edward declared king. Edward strengthened his claim with a decisive victory at the Battle of Towton during which the Lancastrian army was virtually wiped out. Once on the throne, Edward proceeded to alienate his supporters by secretly marrying a Lancastrian widow, Elizabeth Woodville. They would have ten children. The queen and her large, ambitious family made themselves obnoxious to the nobility and were roundly disliked. As a result of Edward's actions, Warwick and the king's younger brother, George, Duke of Clarence, changed sides and led an army against Edward. Henry VI briefly regained the throne during this interlude, but was recaptured at the Battle of Barnet and returned to the Tower where he was quietly murdered. Warwick was killed at the same battle. The remaining Lancastrian resistance was crushed at the Battle of Tewkesbury in 1471. Edward did not face any further rebellion after his restoration. He revived the English claim to the French throne and invaded France in 1475. He extorted a non-aggression treaty, the Treaty of Picquigny, from Louis XI that same year which paid the English crown an annuity. Safely on his throne, the king allowed his brother, the Duke of Gloucester to govern the often fractious north of the kingdom while he overindulged in drink and food and while collected a string of mistresses. Edward fell ill at Easter 1483, but lingered long enough to name his brother, Gloucester, as Protector after his death. Edward died leaving behind two sons aged twelve and nine, five daughters, and a troubled legacy. He was succeeded by his twelve-year-old son, Edward V. His son was, however, barred from the throne by Parliament on charges of illegitimacy and he was succeeded by Richard III. Bio by: Iola

; Per Genealogics:
     “Edward was born on 28 April 1442 in Rouen, France, the eldest son of Richard, 3rd duke of York, and Cicely Nevill. Born in France where his father was Lieutenant and Captain-General of Aquitaine as well as Ambassador, he was, however, brought up at Ludlow Castle.
     “Edward grew to be unusually tall, blond and skilled in the martial arts. He was also a favourite companion for the ladies. Edward and his younger brother, Edmund, joined their father's pursuit for the English crown. However, Edmund and their father fell at the battle of Wakefield in December 1460.
     “The family fortunes changed and Edward became king on 4 March 1461, to be crowned in Westminster Abbey the day after. For a short while all went well until, three years later, he offended many when his secret marriage to Elizabeth Woodville was revealed. This marriage alienated him from his main supporter, the Earl of Warwick, who had been seeking a proper princess as Queen instead of this widow who was also five years older than the king.
     “Elizabeth Woodville became the mother of Edward IV's ten children; but as he continued pursuing women, he also fathered two illegitimate children.
     “The Earl of Warwick changed to the Lancastrian side, raised troops in France and, in 1470, forced Edward IV to flee the country while his wife and children went into sanctuary at Westminster. King Henry VI was restored but, in April 1471, Edward IV regained his power in England. Warwick and Henry VI's son were both killed in battle and, with Henry VI's murder, the Lancastrian house was ended.
     “Edward IV then imprisoned his younger brother George, duke of Clarence, who had both been married to Warwick's daughter and sided with Warwick in the Lancastrian cause. While imprisoned in the Tower, he may have been killed by drowning in a butt of malmsey wine. The only brother left was Richard, duke of Gloucester.
     “He was popular, pleasure-seeking but also ruthless. Had he lived longer, he may have been a more important king. However he died, on 9 April 1483 in Westminster Palace, possibly of pneumonia, not yet forty-one-years of age.”.2

He was with Richard Neville, Ear] of Warwick, at the Yorkist defeat of the Lancastrians at Northampton on 10 July 1460 with the capture of King Henry VI. He was known as Earl of March till he succeeded his father on 30 Dec. 1460 as 4th Duke of York. He defeated the Lancastrians at Mortimer's Cross, near Wigmore, on 2 or 3 Feb. 1460/1. He was proclaimed King of England by his supporters on 4 Mar. 1460/1, and crowned at Westminster on 29 June 1461. He was married, privately, at the manor house of the bride's father at Grafton Regis, co. Northampton, on 1 May 1464, to ELIZABETH WYDEVILLE, widow of John Grey, Knt., of Groby, co. Leicester (slain on the Lancastrian side at St. Albans on 17 Feb. 1460/1), and daughter of Richard Wydeville, 1st Earl Rivers, by Jacquette, daughter of Pierre de Luxembourg, Comte de Saint Pol, Conversano and Brienne (descendant of Charlemagne). She was born about 1437. The marriage was kept secret for five months till Edward was confronted with a French marriage agreement. He was deposed by Richard Neville the Kingmaker, Earl of Warwick, Edward's cousin who had previously dominated the government, and fled to Flanders. He returned to England on 14 Mar. 1471, and defeated Warwick and the Lancastrians at the Battle of Barnet on 14 Apr. 1471 (where Warwick was slain), and at Tewkesbury, 4 May 1471.

Questions about Edward's paternity were first raised during his reign and were repeated by his brother Richard who declared him illegitimate on 22 Jun 1483 prior to seizing the throne. The Historie of England by Polydore Vergil records that “Cecyly king Edwards mother...being falsely accusyd of adultery, companyd...of that great injury which hir soon Richard had doon hir”[1218]. The matter even found its way into Shakespeare's Richard III[1219]. It is suggested that his real father was an archer named Blaybourne. Historian Dr Michael K. Jones revealed, in a UK television documentary[1220], evidence from the Rouen cathedral register which indicates that Richard Duke of York was on campaign in Pontoise from 14 Jul to 21 Aug 1441, the period when Edward would have been conceived. This does not of course constitute proof that the duke's absence was continuous throughout the period. In addition, there is no proof that Edward's mother stayed in Rouen throughout the time in question, so she could have joined her husband temporarily on campaign. Created Earl of March [Sep/Dec] 1445. After rebelling with his father, he was also forced to flee at Ludford 13 Oct 1459, arriving in Calais 2 Nov. He was attainted 20 Nov 1459, forfeiting all his titles and honours. He defeated the Lancastrians at Northampton 10 Jul 1460 and captured King Henry VI, whom they brought to London 16 Jul 1460. His attainder and forfeiture were nullified Oct 1460. He succeeded his father 1460 as Duke of York, Earl of Ulster and Earl of Cambridge. He defeated the Earls of Pembroke and Wiltshire at Mortimer's Cross, near Wigmore, 2 or 3 Feb 1461, and marched on London where he was proclaimed EDWARD IV King of England by Parliament 4 Mar 1461. Crowned 28 Jun 1461 at Westminster Abbey. He was deposed in favour of King Henry VI 3 Oct 1470, but restored to the throne 11 Apr 1471. A manuscript calendar records the death “IV Id Apr” in 1483 of “Rege Edwardi iiii”[1221]. The Vitellius A XVI Chronicle records the death “at Westmynster” 9 Apr [1483] of “kyng Edward IV” and his burial at “Wyndesor”[1222].
     "m (Manor of Grafton Regis, Northamptonshire 1 May 1464) as her second husband, ELIZABETH Wydeville, widow of JOHN Grey of Groby, daughter of RICHARD Wydeville Earl Rivers & his wife Jacquette de Luxembourg (Grafton Regis [1437]-St Saviour’s Abbey, Bermondsey 8 Jun 1492, bur St George’s Chapel, Windsor). A manuscript pedigree dated to [1500] names "Queen Elizabeth" as daughter of "Richard Earl Rivers" and mother of "The Queen that now is" and of "Thomas Marquess of Dorset"[1223]. A manuscript records the marriage “in festo Apostolorum Philippi et Jacobi” of “rex Edwardus” and “Elizabetham filiam domini de Rivaye et ducisse Bedfordie”[1224]. The Continuation of the History of Croyland records the marriage “privately” of “king Edward” and “the widow of a certain knight, Elizabeth...though she only had a knight for her father, had a duchess for her mother”[1225]. She was crowned Queen 26 May 1465 at Westminster Abbey. Her marriage was declared null and void 25 Jun 1483 by the Act of Parliament “Titulus Regius”, their children becoming illegitimate, but recognised as valid once more Oct 1485 by the first Parliament of King Henry VII.
     "Mistress (1): ELEANOR Talbot, widow of THOMAS Butler [son of Ralph Boteler Lord Sudeley], daughter of JOHN Talbot Earl of Shrewsbury & his second wife Margaret Beauchamp (-30 Jun 1468). The Memoirs of Philip de Comines record that the bishop of Bath “discovered to the duke of Gloucester that his brother king Edward” had married (before he married the queen), the bishop performing the ceremony “nobody was present but they two and himself”[1226]. The declaration of nullity of the marriage of Edward IV and Elizabeth Wydeville (25 Jun 1483 by the Act of Parliament “Titulus Regius”) was based on his alleged pre-contract of marriage with Eleanor Butler. The Titulus Regius 23 Jan 1483 (O.S.) records that “King Edward was...maryed...to...Dame Elianor Butteler doughter of the old Earl of Shrewesbury, with whom the same King Edward had made a precontracte of matrimonie...bifore he made the...pretensed mariage with...Elizabeth Grey”[1227].
     "Mistress (2): CATHERINE Clarington, daughter of ---. Buck records that King Edward IV had “many mistresses...whereof the most famous was Catharine de Clarington, Elisabeth Wiatt alias Lucy, Jane Shore, the Lady Elianour Talbot” but he cites no primary sources on which he bases this information[1228].
     "Mistress (3): ELIZABETH Lucy [Wyatt/Waite], daughter of ---. Buck records that King Edward IV had “many mistresses...whereof the most famous was Catharine de Clarington, Elisabeth Wiatt alias Lucy, Jane Shore, the Lady Elianour Talbot” but he cites no primary sources on which he bases this information[1229]. Thomas More´s biography of King Richard III (dated to [1513]) records that King Edward IV was betrothed to “Dame Elizabeth Lucy, whom the king had also not long before gotten with child”, although it is clear from the context that More is reporting the same incident which other earlier sources indicate involved Eleanor Talbot (see above)[1230]. No earlier primary source has been found in which Elizabeth Lucy/Wyatt is named, nor has any primary source been traced which identifies the mother(s) of King Edward´s three illegitimate children who are shown below.
     "Mistress (4): JANE Shore, daughter of ---. Buck records that King Edward IV had “many mistresses...whereof the most famous was Catharine de Clarington, Elisabeth Wiatt alias Lucy, Jane Shore, the Lady Elianour Talbot” but he cites no primary sources on which he bases this information[1231]. Thomas More´s biography of King Richard III (dated to [1513]) records that King Edward IV “had three concubines in whom three diverse qualities differently excelled: one the merriest, another the wiliest, the third the holiest harlot in his realm...the merriest was Shore´s wife [Jane]”[1232]."

Edward IV (?) King of England was King of England: EDWARD IV. Parliament declared the three Lancastrian kings usurpers and Henry VI, his wife, son, and chief adherents, traitors. Edward closed the session with a speech of thanks to the Commons, the first time an English king had addressed that body. The mass of Englishmen now wanted a monarch to keep order and to allow them to attend to trade, industry, and agriculture. Civil war continued intermittently, and Henry VI was finally captured (1465) and put in the Tower. Edward's marriage to the commoner Elizabeth Woodville, and the beginnings of the creation of a new nobility, angered the older nobles. Edward now increasingly unpopular (1469-70).

1471: Edward's victory at Barnet (1471), where Warwick was killed. Henry VI died (in all probability, was murdered) in the Tower.

After the death of Henry VI, Edward faced no serious internal threat. Parliament denied him adequate support for war against Louis XI, and, in any case, when Edward invaded France in 1475, he was bought off without fighting. Thereafter he concentrated on domestic affairs: he reorganized revenues from crown lands (greatly expanded by the addition of the Yorkist estates); began the practice of taking benevolences, theoretically free gifts but actually forced; supported the wool trade and benefited from the increased customs duties. His resulting wealth, combined with a peaceful foreign policy, made him independent of Parliament. These policies served as precedents for later Tudor government. between 1461 and 1483.4,16 He was Knight of the Burgundian Order of the Golden Fleece in 1468.2

He was created Duke of Clarence by his brother King Edward IV on 28 June 1461. He was first summoned to Parliament on 28 Feb. 1466/7. He was married at Calais on 11 July 1469 to ISABEL NEVILLE, elder daughter and co-heiress of Richard Neville, 1st Earl of Warwick and 2nd Earl of Salisbury (descendant of King Edward I), by Anne Beauchamp, Countess of Warwick (descendant of King Edward III), daughter of Richard Beauchamp, 13th Earl of Warwick.

Their children were born at sea off Calais in 1470, at Farley Castle near Bath in 1473, at Warwick Castle in 1475 and at Tewkesbury in 1476. He joined his father-in-law in the rebellion against the King (his brother) in favour of the deposed King, Henry VI, but, changing sides, assisted in King Edward's victory at Barnet on 14 Apr. 1471. In this battle his wife's father was slain, whereupon he, "in consideration of that his marriage", was created Earl of Warwick and Earl of Salisbury on 25 Mar. 1471/2, and, on 20 May 1472, was made Great Chamberlain of England. Isabel Neville died at Warwick Castle on 22 Dec. 1476, and was buried at Tewkesbury.

He was executed in the Tower aged twenty-eight on 18 Feb. 1478, said to have been drowned in a butt of malmsey wine, and was buried in Tewkesbury Abbey.

Edward the new Earl of Salisbury's mother (and RICHARD III's wife) Anne was the younger of 'Kingmaker' Warwick/Salisbury's two daughters but again the grant was to Edward rather than a recognition of his right to the title through his maternal ancestry, though doubtless this played a part, for example in the selection of the place name of which he was made Earl. Edward Earl of Salisbury of the 1477/8 creation died the year before his father RICHARD III was defeated and killed at Bosworth, and the Earldom of Salisbury accordingly became extinct. in 1478.6

; Per Genealogics:
     "Owen Tudor was born about 1400, the son of Maredudd ap Tudur and his wife Margaret.
     "His marriage to Catherine, queen-widow of England, is not certain. Reputedly about 1428 he married Catherine de Valois, widow of Henry V, king of England, and daughter of Charles VI, king of France, and Isabeau of Bavaria. They became the parents of three sons and one daughter.
On 2 February 1461 at Mortimer's Cross, between Hereford and Leominster, a battle took place between the Yorkists and Lancastrians. No account of the battle has survived but, according to locals, on the battle's anniversary the faint sound of horses' hooves and of men shouting can still be heard at Mortimer's Cross.
     "The victorious Yorkists revenged themselves by continuing the murderous pattern of repirsals begun at St. Albans in 1455. Several of the Lancastrian leaders were captured and immediately executed. Jasper Tudor 'stole away privily disguised and fled out of the country; his father was not so lucky.
     "Owen Tudor could not understand that he was to die only because he was King Henry VI's stepfather. When captured he believed that he would not be executed until he saw the axe and the block. Then he said 'That head shall lie on the stock that was wont to lie on Queen Katherine's lap', and, putting his heart and mind wholly unto God, meekly accepted his death."1

Jasper Tudor KG., Earl of Pembroke, 1st Duke of Bedford was buried after 21 December 1495 at Keynsham Abbey, Keynsham, Bath and North East Somerset Unitary Authority, co. Somerset, England; From Find A Grave:
     BIRTH     Nov 1429, Hatfield, Welwyn Hatfield District, Hertfordshire, England
     DEATH     21 Dec 1495 (aged 66), Wales
     Lord of Hatfield, Earl of Pembroke and 1st Duke of Bedford, honors which he gained, was stripped of, and was restored to during the turbulent last years of the War of the Roses.
     He was a Lancastrian, knighted by his half-brother Henry VI on 25 Dec 1449, accepted into the Order of the Garter 27 Oct 1485.
He held positions of highest responsibility, including Privy Councillor to the King, High Steward of Oxford University, and Lord Deputy for Ireland. Yet when Henry VI went mad and was removed by the Yorkists in 1461 he was attainted and stripped of his Honors-- which he regained in 1479 after being instrumental in Henry's brief restoration.
     Jasper fled to Brittany after the Battle of Barnet in 1471 and was again brought down-- but he had a genius for the unique kind of double-dealing endemic to the Age, the kind that establishes a real loyalty to one side and a contingent sort of acquiescence in unexpected good fortune enjoyed by the other. This kind of diplomacy doesn't rise to the level of treachery, and he was to regain his Honors and his high station once again.
     After he helped arrange the marriage of his nephew Owen Tudor that ended the Dynastic Wars and created the Tudor dynasty of Henry VII, Jasper bore the crown of bride Elizabeth of York (Edward IV's daughter) at the Coronation.

; In 1453 his half-brother Henry VI, King of England, created him Earl of Pembroke. In 1455 Jasper Tudor fought for Henry VI against the Yorkists at the first battle of St.Albans, and, in 1461, at Mortimer's Cross, where he was defeated by Edward IV. In 1470 he returned to England to join Richard Nevill 'the Kingmaker' who restored Henry VI to the throne. In 1471 after the Lancastrians had been defeated, he fled England once more with his young nephew, Henry Tudor, the future Henry VII, whom he had cared for since 1469. In 1485 he returned to England to aid Henry's attack on Richard III, and, on 22 August 1485, was present at the battle of Bosworth. Henry VII, his nephew, created him Duke of Bedford.2

     BIRTH     3 Feb 1437, Grafton Regis, South Northamptonshire Borough, Northamptonshire, England
     DEATH     8 Jun 1492 (aged 55), Bermondsey, London Borough of Southwark, Greater London, England
     British Monarch, Queen consort of King Edward IV. The eldest daughter of Sir Richard Woodville and Jacquetta of Luxembourg. She married John Grey, a Lancastrian knight, in 1452. She had two sons by this marriage. Grey was killed at St. Albans in 1461. She secretly married Edward, the Yorkist claimant to the throne, on May 1, 1464. She was crowned on 26 May 1465, the first commoner (though well-blooded) to become Queen. Elizabeth was beautiful, but selfish and calculating, demanding favors, grand marriages, and titles for her family members. She bore 10 children, 2 sons and 5 daughters survived to adulthood. When Edward died suddenly in 1483, all of their children were declared illegitimate, their two sons were held in the Tower of London (the Princes in the Tower), and Richard III took the throne. Elizabeth then conspired with the Lancastrians, promising Henry Tudor her daughter Elizabeth of York in marriage if he could take the throne from Richard. When Henry VII became King, all of her children were legitimized once more. Now simply Dame Elizabeth Grey, she retired to Bermondsey Abbey, where she died at the age of 56. Bio by: Kristen Conrad

     "EDWARD of York, son of RICHARD Duke of York & his wife Cecily Neville (Rouen 28 Apr 1442-Palace of Westminster 10 Apr 1483, bur St George’s Chapel, Windsor). The Annales of William Wyrcester record the birth 28 Apr 1442 “apud Rothomagum” of “Edwardus filius secundus Ricardi ducis Eboraci et heres, rex Angliæ et Franciæ”, adding that he was “conceptus...in camera proxima capellæ palatii de Hatfelde”[1217]. Questions about Edward's paternity were first raised during his reign and were repeated by his brother Richard who declared him illegitimate on 22 Jun 1483 prior to seizing the throne. The Historie of England by Polydore Vergil records that “Cecyly king Edwards mother...being falsely accusyd of adultery, companyd...of that great injury which hir soon Richard had doon hir”[1218]. The matter even found its way into Shakespeare's Richard III[1219]. It is suggested that his real father was an archer named Blaybourne. Historian Dr Michael K. Jones revealed, in a UK television documentary[1220], evidence from the Rouen cathedral register which indicates that Richard Duke of York was on campaign in Pontoise from 14 Jul to 21 Aug 1441, the period when Edward would have been conceived. This does not of course constitute proof that the duke's absence was continuous throughout the period. In addition, there is no proof that Edward's mother stayed in Rouen throughout the time in question, so she could have joined her husband temporarily on campaign. Created Earl of March [Sep/Dec] 1445. After rebelling with his father, he was also forced to flee at Ludford 13 Oct 1459, arriving in Calais 2 Nov. He was attainted 20 Nov 1459, forfeiting all his titles and honours. He defeated the Lancastrians at Northampton 10 Jul 1460 and captured King Henry VI, whom they brought to London 16 Jul 1460. His attainder and forfeiture were nullified Oct 1460. He succeeded his father 1460 as Duke of York, Earl of Ulster and Earl of Cambridge. He defeated the Earls of Pembroke and Wiltshire at Mortimer's Cross, near Wigmore, 2 or 3 Feb 1461, and marched on London where he was proclaimed EDWARD IV King of England by Parliament 4 Mar 1461. Crowned 28 Jun 1461 at Westminster Abbey. He was deposed in favour of King Henry VI 3 Oct 1470, but restored to the throne 11 Apr 1471. A manuscript calendar records the death “IV Id Apr” in 1483 of “Rege Edwardi iiii”[1221]. The Vitellius A XVI Chronicle records the death “at Westmynster” 9 Apr [1483] of “kyng Edward IV” and his burial at “Wyndesor”[1222].
     "m (Manor of Grafton Regis, Northamptonshire 1 May 1464) as her second husband, ELIZABETH Wydeville, widow of JOHN Grey of Groby, daughter of RICHARD Wydeville Earl Rivers & his wife Jacquette de Luxembourg (Grafton Regis [1437]-St Saviour’s Abbey, Bermondsey 8 Jun 1492, bur St George’s Chapel, Windsor). A manuscript pedigree dated to [1500] names "Queen Elizabeth" as daughter of "Richard Earl Rivers" and mother of "The Queen that now is" and of "Thomas Marquess of Dorset"[1223]. A manuscript records the marriage “in festo Apostolorum Philippi et Jacobi” of “rex Edwardus” and “Elizabetham filiam domini de Rivaye et ducisse Bedfordie”[1224]. The Continuation of the History of Croyland records the marriage “privately” of “king Edward” and “the widow of a certain knight, Elizabeth...though she only had a knight for her father, had a duchess for her mother”[1225]. She was crowned Queen 26 May 1465 at Westminster Abbey. Her marriage was declared null and void 25 Jun 1483 by the Act of Parliament “Titulus Regius”, their children becoming illegitimate, but recognised as valid once more Oct 1485 by the first Parliament of King Henry VII.
     "Mistress (1): ELEANOR Talbot, widow of THOMAS Butler [son of Ralph Boteler Lord Sudeley], daughter of JOHN Talbot Earl of Shrewsbury & his second wife Margaret Beauchamp (-30 Jun 1468). The Memoirs of Philip de Comines record that the bishop of Bath “discovered to the duke of Gloucester that his brother king Edward” had married (before he married the queen), the bishop performing the ceremony “nobody was present but they two and himself”[1226]. The declaration of nullity of the marriage of Edward IV and Elizabeth Wydeville (25 Jun 1483 by the Act of Parliament “Titulus Regius”) was based on his alleged pre-contract of marriage with Eleanor Butler. The Titulus Regius 23 Jan 1483 (O.S.) records that “King Edward was...maryed...to...Dame Elianor Butteler doughter of the old Earl of Shrewesbury, with whom the same King Edward had made a precontracte of matrimonie...bifore he made the...pretensed mariage with...Elizabeth Grey”[1227].
     "Mistress (2): CATHERINE Clarington, daughter of ---. Buck records that King Edward IV had “many mistresses...whereof the most famous was Catharine de Clarington, Elisabeth Wiatt alias Lucy, Jane Shore, the Lady Elianour Talbot” but he cites no primary sources on which he bases this information[1228].
     "Mistress (3): ELIZABETH Lucy [Wyatt/Waite], daughter of ---. Buck records that King Edward IV had “many mistresses...whereof the most famous was Catharine de Clarington, Elisabeth Wiatt alias Lucy, Jane Shore, the Lady Elianour Talbot” but he cites no primary sources on which he bases this information[1229]. Thomas More´s biography of King Richard III (dated to [1513]) records that King Edward IV was betrothed to “Dame Elizabeth Lucy, whom the king had also not long before gotten with child”, although it is clear from the context that More is reporting the same incident which other earlier sources indicate involved Eleanor Talbot (see above)[1230]. No earlier primary source has been found in which Elizabeth Lucy/Wyatt is named, nor has any primary source been traced which identifies the mother(s) of King Edward´s three illegitimate children who are shown below.
     "Mistress (4): JANE Shore, daughter of ---. Buck records that King Edward IV had “many mistresses...whereof the most famous was Catharine de Clarington, Elisabeth Wiatt alias Lucy, Jane Shore, the Lady Elianour Talbot” but he cites no primary sources on which he bases this information[1231]. Thomas More´s biography of King Richard III (dated to [1513]) records that King Edward IV “had three concubines in whom three diverse qualities differently excelled: one the merriest, another the wiliest, the third the holiest harlot in his realm...the merriest was Shore´s wife [Jane]”[1232]."

; Per Genealogics:
     “Elizabeth was born about 1437 at Grafton Regis, daughter of Richard Widville and Jacquetta de Luxembourg.
     “Elizabeth's French mother had come to England as the wife of John, Duke of Bedford, son of King Henry IV. As his childless widow she had married the obscure knight, Richard Widville.
     “Elizabeth became a maid of honour to Margaret of Anjou, the Queen of Henry VI. A marriage was arranged with Sir John Grey of Groby and they had two sons. However Sir John Grey, a Lancastrian, fell at the second battle of St. Albans in February 1461. Elizabeth apparently then came to King Edward IV's notice when she petitioned him to have her husband's lands restored.
     “Edward IV was intrigued by her cool appearance and blonde beauty, but she refused to become his mistress as, she said she 'was too base to be his wife yet too good to be his harlot'. And so the king married her in secret; but after some months he gave her a state entry into London and a magnificent coronation as his queen.
     “She was disliked by many and most dangerously by the king's brother, the Duke of Gloucester. Favours bestowed upon her father, brothers and sisters caused even more offence. Although her family had been Lancastrians, her father was made Earl Rivers and Lord High Constable of England. Her sisters made brilliant marriages and her own eldest son, Thomas Grey, became Marquess of Dorset.
     “When the Earl of Warwick restored Henry VI, she took sanctuary with her children in Westminster where she gave birth to Edward (V), Prince of Wales. The restoration of her husband resulted in the birth of still more children, so that by the king she had ten altogether.
     “After the king's death and fearing the Duke of Gloucester she again went into sanctuary. She had to allow her son Edward to be taken to the Tower in preparation for his coronation as King Edward V. As long as she kept her two royal sons apart, she considered that they both were safe. However she was persuaded by Cardinal Bourchier to allow the younger son Richard, Duke of York also to be taken to the Tower and she never saw either again.
     “In his pursuit to legitimise himself as king, the Duke of Gloucester had Elizabeth and Edward IV's marriage declared invalid by Parliament, alleging that Edward IV had contracted to marry Lady Eleanor Butler and with this action he had Edward IV's children declared illegitimate. The two sons disappeared mysteriously and the Duke of Gloucester became Richard III.
     “After the defeat of Richard III by Henry VII, Elizabeth was restored as Queen Dowager. However all her lands were taken from her and she retired to Bermondsey Abbey where she died in poverty on 7 June 1492.”.5
