KING EDWARD IV is dying and has gathered his family and friends around him to promise a truce when he dies.  The heir of the York family, he snatched the throne from the Lancastrian KING HENRY the SIXTH as part of the bloody Wars of the Roses, and the inter-connected family dynamics led to intrigue and back-stabbing among his supporters: chiefly between his brother RICHARD DUKE of GLOUCESTER and his wife, QUEEN ELIZABETH (WOODVILLE).
