King Edward the who? It’s very hard to remember anything about Edward IV. But why? He was an excellent king who restored domestic peace, rooted out corruption and even married for love, not political gain.
Instead of leaving an admirable legacy, he died in 1483 and the kingdom plunged into war, dynastic murder, a series of assaults on freedom and dramatic religious upheaval.
It shows how readily the good rulers do vanishes when they do, while the evil of bad rulers lingers on.
