Edward IV (1442 – 1483)

It may or may not have belonged to king Edward IV but none the less a stunning find in Lincolnshire.

Well, since Edward IV died in 1483 he couldn't possibly have lost an item made in 1485. The Fail article also had a lot of other errors: Edward IV was the brother of Richard III, not his father. Edward IV's last military campaign was in France in 1475 - he sent his brother Richard to do battle for him after that so he couldn't have lost this in battle in the 1480s. And the most egregious was that the picture they used was of Henry Tudor! If that beautiful Sunne in Splendor belonged to and was worn by Edward IV it was obviously made prior to 1483.

Elizabeth Woodville died of the plague as per a long lost document! The queen dowager died at Bermondsey Abbey in London in 1492.

That was a very interesting article, thanks for posting that. Considering how endemic plague was, it would certainly explain a lot about Elizabeth Woodville's speedy and sparse funeral.

He was executed in 1483 and 8 years later the Earldom was extinct upon the death of the childless 3rd Earl in 1491.
