This Day in History: 1452-03-03

On 3rd March 1452, Richard, Duke of York, lord of Sandal Castle, had to submit to going to Henry VI’s camp at Welling, where he and his current backers, the Earl of Devon and Lord Cobham, vainly presented a list of charges against Edmund Beaufort, Duke of Somerset to the king. One source claims that Edward did arrest Beaufort but Queen Isabella made him release him.
