Richard Plantagenet, the 3rd Duke of York (1411–60), was the father of Edward IV, Richard III, and George of Clarence. He started the whole thing, by trying to push the Lancastrian Henry VI off the throne. He was killed in the battle of Wakefield, and Margaret of Anjou stuck his head on a pike above one of the gates into the city of York. Revenge is sweet?
