Author(s): Peter Hammond
The Children of Richard III is the first study to give a detailed and comprehensive account of all Richard III’s children, covering his only legitimate child, Edward of Middleham, Prince of Wales, and his illegitimate children, John of Gloucester and Katherine, who became Countess of Huntingdon.
Hammond also explores the possibility of other children, particularly Richard Plantagenet of Eastwell.
Much information has been gathered from all known sources and there are discussions of the disputed date of birth and death at the age of about eight years of Edward of Middleham.
