Edward IV took the throne from Henry VI in 1461, and ruled until 1483.

1483 (aside from a brief period 1470- 71). He was a giant for the time, at 6 foot 2 inches, and an inspiring military leader.

King Richard III did not have a happy reign.

He beheaded anyone he suspected of opposing him.

Henry Tudor won the Battle of Bosworth.

Richard III was the last king from a family known as the ‘Plantagenets’, and for the next 120 years Britain would be ruled by a new royal family: the Tudors.
