Description

Memorable not for his life but his death, Edward V is probably better known as one of the Princes in the Tower, the supposed victim of his uncle, Richard III. Though he was crowned, Edward reigned for 77 days until Richard made himself his nephew's Lord Protector before imprisoning him and his youngest brother Richard in the Tower of London. Michael Hicks presents to us the backdrop to this tragically short life - Edward's parents, the contemporary political scenery, his own remarkable achievements - and reveals how he was both the hope of a dynasty and an integral cause of that dynasty's collapse.show more
