How justified was Edward IV's reputation as a libertine? In this study, Ashdown-Hill scrutinizes contemporary evidence for the king's alleged promiscuity, even making a detailed itinerary showing where Edward spent his nights. As well as searching for elusive mistresses and illegitimate offspring, the study examines the king's marriages to Elizabeth Woodville and Eleanor Talbot and the legitimacy of their children - a matter of controversy that became a major problem for the Plantagenet dynasty.
