The Yorkist Kings and the Wars of the Roses: Part One: Edward IV By David Bret
eBook (ePub): $9.22

Edward IV has always been overshadowed by his controversial younger brother Richard III, and is most remembered for his pursuit of pleasure~the archetypal medieval playboy. There was considerably... More > more to him than this. During the first half of his reign he was an astute military tactician who never lost a battle, a courageous, approachable monarch loved by his subjects. The second half of his reign finds him different. With his Treasury solvent having being stretched quelling a decade of civil unrest, and with England's peace marred only by the murky intrigues of his brother Clarence, Edward was free to indulge in his fancies. He lived extravagantly, and though devoted to his queen, Elizabeth Woodville, played the field~there were hundreds of women and at least one male lover. Sadly, he ate himself into an early grave, leaving England to face the most chaotic period in its history thus far. Celebrity biographer David Bret has nurtured a lifelong passion for the Plantagenet kings, and is a fervent Ricardian.< Less

There is renewed interest in Richard III since the discovery of his remains when it was revealed he was not the hunchbacked monster of Tudor myth but a tall, handsome man who suffered from scoliosis... More > of the spine. If the Tudor propagandists perpetrated this myth,what else was made up? Richard remains the most controversial monarch in British history. Edward IV’s sudden death plunged England into chaos. As protector of his young sons, they were placed in the Tower and never seen again, setting in motion a mystery which has never been solved. Did Richard kill his nephews, or were they dispatched by the Duke of Buckingham, or by Henry Tudor and mother, Margaret Beaufort? What was the nature of the relationship between Richard and Buckingham? Was he just too trusting of this conniving man, caught out when at his weakest—mourning a brother he had adored? The fact that he has thousands of devoted supporters over 500 years after his death points to the fact that Richard III was more than a king. He was a legend.< Less
