Summary
"The Yorkist dynasty included both the most notorious king in English history, Richard III, and the most tragic, his nephew Edward V, one of the Princes in the Tower. The Yorkists gained the throne in 1461, when Edward IV, who traced his claim to Edward III, replaced the ineffectual Henry VI as king. Forced into exile in 1470 by his cousin, Warwick 'the Kingmaker', who restored Henry VI to his throne, Edward returned to power after the battles of Barnet and Tewkesbury in 1471. His reign was ended by his premature death in 1483, leaving behind a son Edward, a minor, as his heir. This led to Richard III's ursurpation of his nephew's throne. His reign was ended two years later by his defeat and death at Bosworth Field at the hands of Henry Tudor, who became Henry VII. His marriage to Elizabeth of York, the daughter of Edward IV, founded a new dynasty." "The Yorkists were one of the two main contending parties in England's first great civil war, the Wars of the Roses. They have been immortalized by Shakespeare not only in his Richard III but also in his three parts of Henry VI. Anne Crawford examines the characters of these kings and members of their family and the truths behind the stories in the plays, including the death of the Duke of Clarence by drowning in a butt of malmsey, and Richard III's celebrated murder of his nephews, Edward V and Richard, Duke of York."--Jacket
