Edward IV, (1442-1483) was King of England from March 1461 until October 1470, and again from April 1471 until his death in April 1483. In a turbulent world, Edward Duke of York-with good title to the throne-overthrew the corrupt government of the weak and feeble-minded Henry VI, setting the foundation stones for a strong and prosperous England.
