A talk by Philip Hume on Richard, Duke of York/Edward IV: Marcher Lords.
Richard, Duke of York and his son, Edward, controlled a large swathe of the Welsh Marcher Lordships. As Marcher Lords they had unique powers with access to resources and armies that were critical in claiming and winning the crown. This talk explores the development of the Marcher Lordships with their regal-like powers, and their role in the 'Wars of the Roses'.
Philip Hume is the Secretary of Mortimer History Society, and author of On the Trail of the Mortimers (Logaston Press, 2016), The Welsh Marcher Lordships: Central and Northern Region (Logaston Press, due February 2021; and editor of the series), and co-author of The Ludlow Castle Heraldic Roll (Logaston Press, 2019), and several articles in the Ricardian Bulletin. After completing his degree in History at University College, London, Philip had a successful career in senior management in local government.
