Encyclopedia > Richard Grey

Richard Grey (1458? – June 13(?), 1483) was son to John Grey, 2nd Baron Ferrers of Groby, and Elizabeth Woodville, later Queen Consort to King Edward IV of England. He was therefore half-brother to Edward, Prince of Wales (later Edward V). He was arrested by Richard, Duke of Gloucester (later Richard III) on April 30, 1483 for his part in an attempted coup. The Woodvilles presumably meant to seize the king’s person and thereby wrest control of the kingdom away from Richard, then Lord Protector. Richard Grey was subsequently executed at Pontefract Castle.
