His father died on April 9, 1483. Thus Edward V became King of England and Richard his Heir Presumptive. This was not to last. Robert Stillington, a priest, presented evidence that Edward IV had contacted a secret marriage to Lady Eleanor Talbot in 1461. Talbot was still alive when Edward married Elizabeth Woodville in 1464.
