The prince might have been a child but he was also a major landholder, which Hicks neatly exhibits, and as such had a council, a somewhat confusing body, which Hicks also helps to clarify. There can be little doubt after reading all that Professor Hicks has compiled that Edward V was an important figure in the second reign of his father. This same clarity is even more noticeable in Hicks’ discussion of the death of Edward V and its larger significance.

The princes in the tower were the intended next king of England and his younger brother. After their father died they were taken to the Tower of London to prepare for the eldest's coronation. They were never seen again. The convenient disappearance of both his nephews meant the king’s brother was now next in line for the throne. The lucky uncle became Richard III of England, whose tumultuous reign was quickly brought to an end by Henry Tudor, crowned Henry VII.

The first biography of the king whose fate remains one of the greatest mysteries in English history. Though he was never crowned, Edward reigned for 77 days until Richard made himself his nephew's Lord Protector before imprisoning him and his younger brother Richard in the Tower of London.
