When Edward IV first took the throne, he never managed to keep Henry VI under lock and key. It led to Henry VI taking the throne back. However, six months after that Edward IV went back to war and this time Henry VI was captured. Sometime between May 21 and May 22, 1471, Henry VI died but the cause of death has never been confirmed.
There are many who suspect Edward IV for his predecessor’s death. If you have seen The White Queen, you know that Henry VI was killed by Edward and his two brothers, George and Richard. It was a way to ensure the Lancastrians had nobody to place on the throne and could not fight against the York House.
