Battle of Mortimer’s Cross. Edward, earl of March, has learned of the deaths at the battle of Wakefield and prepares to return to London with troops raised in the Welsh marches. He met the forces of Jasper Tudor earl of Pembroke, and his father Owen at Mortimer’s Cross, some 30km north of Hereford.
A parhelion was seen in the sky, which caused Edward’s troops some concern. Being reassured that this was a sign that God was on their side, Edward’s small army defeated the Tudors. Jasper made his escape but Owen, widower of queen Catherine de Valios, was executed.
Edward later took the sun in splendour as his personal badge.
