It must also be accepted that it is every bit as possible that he intended to take the throne even before he left York, that the chance he had been waiting for had arrived. There is no evidence of this man before 1483, yet he certainly emerges during that summer. The basis upon which Richard took the throne is well worth an examination since it will differentiate between a usurper seizing an opportunity and a reluctant man doing his duty. Probably in early June, Bishop Stillington approached the Protector with a matter of grave concern.

Richard left York on 23rd April and Edward left Ludlow on 24th. At some point in his journey Richard received a letter from Rivers altering their meeting to Northampton on 29th April. This must have felt even more suspicious atop everything else. Rivers and the new King arrived at Northampton on 29th but whilst Rivers stayed there to await the Protector, the King and the rest of his retinue rode further on to Stoney Stratford, a Woodville manor. When Richard reached Northampton to find the King missing, his concern surely grew.

Edmund was the son who the Duke kept close throughout the conflicts of the Wars of the Roses. Possibly he intended at some point to name Edmund his heir, but he never did. Both died together at Wakefield and Edward went on to take the throne.
