During the reign of Edward IV, there were tax riots spreading across northern England. Publicly, these riots were instigated by the mysterious rebel known as Robin of Redesdale, but secretly, they were started by the Kingmaker, Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick. Because of Warwick’s involvement in the rebellion, it is speculated that Robin of Redesdale was really one of Warwick’s knights, Sir John Conyers. These riots created all out chaos throughout England and were part of Warwick’s strategy to bring Edward IV down. I am thinking of basing a rebellious character on Robin of Redesdale in my third fantasy book.
