      I haven’t found anything where Perkin, aka Richard says who killed his brother Edward. That doesn’t surprise me because he would have been out of the country at the time, in hiding.

        “I myself, then nearly nine years of age, was also delivered to a certain Lord to be killed, [but] it pleased Divine Clemency, that lord, having compassion on my innocence, preserved me alive in safety: first, however, causing me to swear on the holy sacrament that to no one should I disclose my name, origin, or family, until a certain number of years had passed.”
        where I he says also was delivered indicates that someone (presumably his brother) was delivered either prior to or at the same time as him, and was delivered to the person who was to kill him…a person whose identity he also indicates he was sent with 2 people who would likely know who sent them abroad with him.

    He was the real mc coy, the true son of Elizabeth Woodville and Edward IV. He stayed in the courts of Europe and was considered Richard the son of Edward IV throughout. The invader Henry Tudor proclaimed him a pretender, well he would do that because his own claim to the throne was a very weak one.
