Buckingham's Rebellion of 1483 involved a series of risings planned across Southern England. This book is a study of this crucial event in the reign of Richard III and is aimed at anyone with an interest in medieval England. Through an analysis of a cross-section of the rebels, the author demonstrates the connections between the leading Southern gentry, their collective involvement in local government and their links with the court of Edward IV. The study of the rebellion serves as an expose of the power relationships, patronage and cronyism in Ricardian England.
