Character description

Edward, Prince of Wales (1453–1471), only son of King Henry VI of England and Margaret of Anjou, was known as Edward of Lancaster, Edward of Westminster, and the Silver Swan (for his heraldic badge). During the Wars of the Roses, he and his mother went on the run from the Yorkists, and eventually allied with Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick, to restore Henry VI briefly to the throne. Edward married Anne Neville, Warwick's daughter, in 1470 and returned to England, but was killed at the Battle of Tewkesbury. He was the only Prince of Wales ever to die in battle.
