      Marriage 4 Elizabeth WYDEVILLE b: ABT 1437 in Grafton Regis, Northamtonshire
      • Married: 1 MAY 1464 in Grafton Regis, Northamptonshire
      • Note: Note: Edward earned the enmity of Yorkist Richard Neville the"Kingmaker" & Earl of Warwick by marrying Elizabeth the widow ofa Lancastrian knight. While Warwick was negotiating for amarriage with a French princess (more suitable in genealogicalterms), Edward married Elizabeth, & so Warwick rebelled againstEdward. No doubt he believed that if he had "made" this king,he could also unmake him. She was a highly unusual match for amedieval King of England. Before his coronation, fine, butEdward married her when he was already King, and the first kingof a new line, who could very well do with making some foreignalliances.
