- Expectations 1483
- In 1483 Edward IV died suddenly.
- Edward V was only twelve years old.
- There was every hope that he would succeed his fathers throne without difficulty but his young age left the crown in a vunerable position.
- The huge suprise in 1483 was that the threat to the Yorkist dynasty and the new Yorist King, Edward V came from within the family and from its most loyal member and protecter- Richard, Duke of Gloucester
