1455

Birth of Henry Stafford, later duke of Buckingham, to Humphrey Stafford earl of Stafford and Margaret Beaufort, daughter of the duke and duchess of Somerset.

Stafford married Katherine Wydeville, sister of Edward IV’s queen.

After Edward’s death, Stafford initially supported Richard duke of Gloucester’s moves to take the crown from his nephew, Edward V. Later, however, he led a rebellion against the king and was executed on 2 November 1483.
