Character description

See also Richard Plantagenet, 3rd Duke of York (the child's paternal grandfather).

The child Richard, Duke of York and Duke of Norfolk (1473–????), also known as Richard of Shrewsbury, was one of the two "Princes in the Tower." He was the younger son of King Edward IV of England and Elizabeth Woodville. From him, it became a tradition for the second son of the British sovereign to be named Duke of York. After his father's death, his uncle Richard, Duke of Gloucester (later Richard III) took custody of 10-year-old Richard and his older brother. They were sent to the royal lodgings in the Tower of London. Their whereabouts afterwards and eventual fate is unknown and one of the most fascinating historical mysteries. Several young men later turned up claiming to be Richard, including Perkin Warbeck (c. 1474–1499).
