1471

With Edward IV occupying Warwck castle, the duke of Clarence, in full battle array, approaches with a view to reconciliation with his brother. He attempts a reconciliation between Edward and the earl of Warwick. On advice from the earl of Oxford, Warwick refuses to talk. Edward offers “diverse good conditions and profitable for the earl if that he would have accepted them” – probably pardon of his life. Warwick refuses all offers and Edward issues his final challenge to battle.
