List item

Edward IV is Britain’s tallest ever monarch standing at 6ft 4.5in (193cm) reaching 6ft 7in when wearing his armour.  He is most famously known for defeating the Lancastrians in the War of the Roses to establish the House of York. 

Edward was twice king of England – from 1461 until October 1470, and then from April 1471 until his death in 1483 at the Palace of Westminster.

His two sons were the famous Princes in the Tower, both of which were assumed to have been murdered by Edward’s brother Richard (Richard III) after Edward’s death in 1483.
