Birth of Edward of Lancaster, Prince of Wales, to Margaret of Anjou and Henry VI of England.

Edward married Anne Nevill, daughter of Richard Nevill earl of Warwick in December 1470. He was killed at the battle of Tewkesbury in May 1471.


Betrayed by Andrew Trollope and the men of the Calais garrison, and refusing to accept a pardon that doesn’t include the earl of Salisbury, Richard duke of York and his supporters leave Ludlow castle and prepare to flee England.


Henry VI is recrowned at St Paul’s. Warwick holds the king’s train and the earl of Oxford carries the sword of state.
