     Edward V Plantagenet, King of England was born on 4 November 1470.2 He was the son of Edward IV Plantagenet, King of England and Elizabeth Wydevill. He died after November 1483 at Tower of London, The City, London, England, murdered at the orders of either King Richard III or King Henry VII.2 He died in 1483 at London, England. He was buried in 1678 at Westminster Abbey, Westminster, London, England.
     He was created 1st Earl of Chester [England] on 25 June 1471.1 He was created Prince of Wales on 25 June 1471.2 He was created 1st Duke of Cornwall [England] on 17 July 1471.2 He was invested as a Knight, Order of the Garter (K.G.) on 15 May 1475.2 He was created 1st Earl of March [England] on 8 July 1479.2 He was created 1st Earl of Pembroke [England] on 8 July 1479.2 He succeeded to the title of King Edward V of England on 9 April 1483.2 He was deposed as King of England on 25 June 1483.2
     He was only 12 years old when he succeeded to the throne and Richard, the Duke of Gloucester was appointed his guardian. Edward had been living with his younger brother Richard, aged 9, who was the Duke of York, with their mother Queen Elizabeth, near Ludlow. The Duke of Gloucester brought the young King to London ready for the coronation and installed him in a 'suitable residence' - the Tower of London. Shortly afterwards he took the Queen's remaining son Richard to join his brother at the Tower. Gloucester's friends then proclaimed that the two children were illegitimate and that Edward had no claim to the throne. Parliament ratified this and Richard, Duke of Gloucester, was proclaimed King Richard III. The two young boys were murdered by Gloucester and his friends and their bodies lay undiscovered until the reign of Charles II when their remains were transferred to Westminster Abbey.3 He has an extensive biographical entry in the Dictionary of National Biography.4
