Richard, Duke of York: Marcher Lord 

The Wars of the Roses was slow to grow in England. Often seen as a dynastic struggle between York and Lancaster that lasted for thirty years, Matt Lewis takes a closer look at one of the key players in the conflict to explore how Richard, 3rd Duke of York became a rival to King Henry VI. Was he just another power-hungry nobleman? Or is there more to his story than that?
