At the time of his death at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485 he was Earl Marshal, Duke of Norfolk, Lord Admiral and a very rich man (and the current Duke of Norfolk is his direct descendant).

How had he attained these elevations? Through his service to the House of York, and in particular to Richard III during the setting aside of Edward V. John Ashdown-Hill examines why he chose to support Richard, even at the cost of his life- what secrets he knew about Edward IV- what he had to do with the fate of the Princes in the Tower- and what naval innovations, hiterto ascribed to the Tudors, he introduced.

Based on original research and containing previously unpublished material, Richard IIIs Beloved Cousyn is an important contribution to Ricardian scholarship.
