The first-ever biography about

John Howard

with new revelations as to why he became

Richard III’s main supporter.

 

In 1455 John Howard was an untitled and relatively obscure Suffolk gentleman.

Thirty years later, at the time of his death at the Battle of Bosworth Field, he was Earl Marshal, Duke of Norfolk, Lord Admiral and a very rich man (and his direct descendant is Duke of Norfolk today).

 

How had Howard attained these elevations? Through his service to the House of York, and in particular to King Richard III during the setting aside of Edward V.

 

John Ashdown-Hill examines why Howard chose to support Richard, even ultimately at the cost of his life; what secrets he knew about Edward IV; what he had to do with the fate of the ‘Princes in the Tower’ and what naval innovations, hitherto ascribed to the Tudors, he promoted. Based on original research and containing previously unpublished material, Richard III’s ‘Beloved Cousyn’ is an important contribution to Ricardian scholarship.

 

  • Beloved Cousyn‘ brings out many fascinating details which have previously been overlooked
  • Contains new discoveries and interpretations and is an important contribution to discover John Howard’s central relationship with the royal house of York
  • Howard rose rapidly from Edward IV’s coronation onwards, he became knight, peer and admiral
  • The book rewrites the history of shipbuilding, outlining Howard’s naval innovations, hitherto ascribed to the Tudors
