Edward IV (b. 28 Apr 1442 Rouen), son of Richard 'the protector', 3rd Duke of York and Cecily Neville was the first Yorkist king.
Edward spent the first half of his reign involved in the Wars of the Roses, until he finally beat the Lancastrians at Tewkesbury. Peace lasted from 04 May 1471 until he died 09 April 1483, at Westminster Palace. He was buried at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle at Windsor, Berkshire, England.

Edward's only surviving will is dated 1475. The one from his death bed that hands over the reigns to Richard III disappeared. But in the 1475 version, he gives his wife (chief executor), care of his son. "No provision was made for a minority. The Queen was to have any household goods she wanted and power to dispose of the rest. Her daughters were also to be governed and ruled by her in their choice of husbands."

Please don't create any more profiles for pre-1500 people. All of them already exist in Wikitree for the English Royal Family and you will be creating more work and problems. The idea is to have a single shared tree which you connect your own ancestry too. Every person in Wikitree needs to have only one profile.

Can you backup footnote 6 with a source? It may not be enough just to state there was a marriage without sources. Looks great otherwise. Chryse Whitis
