Edward IV, King of England, (1932). A Plantagenet of the Yorkist line, Edward (1442-1483) came to the throne in 1461. The first half of his reign was marked by civil war against the Lancastrians. Edward was forced into exile in France in 1470, but returned to decisively defeat his enemies at the Battle of Tewkesbury the following year. The lower image shows Edward's younger brother, the Duke of Clarence, being drowned in a butt of wine for plotting against the king. From Kings and Queens by Eleanor and Herbert Farjeon, illustrated by Rosalind Thornycroft [Victor Gollancz Ltd, London, 1932]
