Character description

Richard Plantagenet, 3rd Duke of York (1411–1460) was a leading figure in the English Wars of the Roses. He married Cecily Neville, sister of Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick ("the Kingmaker"). Believing he had the better claim to the throne of England than King Henry VI, he fought to become king beginning in 1455, but never achieved it. He was killed at the Battle of Wakefield and two of his sons went on to become kings as Edward IV and Richard III.
