Description

Vintage engraving showing murder of Edward, Prince of Wales after the Battle of Tewkesbury. According to some accounts, shortly after the rout of the Lancastrians at Tewkesbury, a small contingent of men under the Duke of Clarence found the grieving prince near a grove where he was immediately beheaded on a makeshift block, despite his pleas. Another version of what happened was given by three Tudor sources The story they give is that Edward survived the battle and was taken captive. He was taken before the victorious Edward IV who was with George, Duke of Clarence; Richard, Duke of Gloucester; and William, Lord Hastings. The king received the prince graciously, and asked him why he had taken up arms against him. The prince replied defiantly, 'I came to recover my father's heritage.' The king then struck the prince across his face with his gauntlet hand and those with the king proceeded to kill the prince with their swords.
