    later in 1487 to cause Henry Tudor all kinds of trouble until he was killed at the very bloody Battle of Stoke on 16 June 1487.  Insofar as Lincoln was the senior genuine Yorkist claimant, this was a major victory for Henry.

    You have exactly 10 seconds to change that look of disgusting pity into one of enormous respect!

      I could have sworn he died at Bosworth and that only his younger brothers were left.

      Like I said, it has been many years since I studied this so I'm running on old memories. Lincoln had by far the better claim to the throne though by that point, except for Clarence's son, they all went through at least one female line at that point and in the case of Tudor both female and bastard lines.
