When Edward IV died in 1483, the succession of the York House was called into question by doubts about the legitimacy of his sons (the Princes of the tower)Thus, the Public Prosecutor’s Office has undoubtedly passed to a younger, more legitimate brother Edward IV, Richard, Duke of Gloucester.But Richard, too, found himself entangled in the web page in an uncertain way, given that those who believed in the legitimacy of the children of Edward IV’s accession to Richard III with suspicionSince the day Edward IV married Eleanor, or pretended to marry her, the York house, already so sure of its lineage, faced a controversial and uncertain future.John Ashdown-Hill argues that Eleanor Talbot was married to Edward IV, and therefore Edward’s subsequent union with Elizabeth Widville was bigame, rendering his children illegitimate.In his quest to reveal the truth about Eleanor, he also reveals fascinating new evidence that sheds new light on one of the greatest mysteries of all time – the identity of the “bones in the urn” in Westminster Abbey, believed for centuries to be the historical remains of the “Princess in the Tower”.
