  • SUCCESS of EDWARD IV's First Reign 1466-1470
    • He was successful in ESTABLISHING himself as KING
      • This shows that his MONARCHICAL GOVT remained STRONG
    • His success was a SURPRISE because the previous King & his heir were still ALIVE & he was only SUPPORTED by WARWICK
    • ED IV was able to ESTABLISH a POWERFUL REGIME
      • Therefore there was LITTLE CHANCE of Henry VI REGAINING his THRONE
    • It APPEARED that the WoR had been SHORT-LIVED
