Character description

Edward IV (1442–1483), King of England, was a successful military commander and a charismatic leader who played a major role in the Wars of the Roses. His reign was interrupted by this dynastic struggle; it's often dated from 1461-1470 and from 1471-his death. His heraldic badges included the sun surrounded by rays (or "sun in splendour"), recalling his great victory at the Battle of Mortimer's Cross in 1461. The Sun in Splendour also became his nickname, along with the Rose of Rouen for his birthplace.
