Yorkists: The Young Princes

Young Princes

King Edward IV dies
Edward V is king,
Richard acts as regent
until boy, becomes a king.

Richard has the young princes
moved to the Bloody Tower,
Richard has aspirations
of being crowned himself.

Richard questions their heritage
Parliament agrees to his claim,
princes declared illegitimate
no longer, heirs to the throne.

Richard becomes Richard III
the princes become no more,
murdered and hidden in tower
by an unknown murderer.
