Character description

Richard Neville (1428–1471) was a major figure of the English Wars of the Roses. He was 16th Earl of Warwick in right of his wife Anne Beauchamp, and 6th Earl of Salisbury. His nickname was "Warwick the Kingmaker" because of his ambition and political success in deposing King Henry VI (Lancaster) in favour of Edward IV (York). He became rich and powerful but later quarreled with Edward and switched loyalties, restoring Henry VI briefly to the throne and marrying his younger daughter Anne Neville to Henry's son. He was killed at the Battle of Barnet.
