August 25-26 1482
August 25, 1482: Richard, Duke of Gloucester is killed by stray arrow during a rather tense peace agreement with the Scottish King, James III. Edward IV of England suspects murder, and thus marches along with his army to Edinburgh. The frightened and frankly cowardly King of Scotland makes a peace agreement with the English. James, Duke of Rothesay will be betrothed to Cecily of York, and the culprit of the Duke of Gloucester’s murder shall be hung, drawn, and quartered.
August 26, 1482: Margaret of Foix, Duchess of Brittany, gives Francis II a third daughter, Eleanor. She has already delivered two other daughters, Anne (b. 1477) and Isabelle (b. 1478).
1. Each post should cover no more than a year, though you can go into as much detail about the events that occurred in said year.
2. No contradicting previous posts.
3. You can make reference to a butterfly that occurred in a previous year, so long as it doesn’t contradict a previous post.
4. You don’t need to cover what’s happening in every country in a year, just write about what you want to or are knowledgeable in.
5. You must wait until at least one person has posted after you before posting again.
6. You can add portraits if you wish to.
7. The posts can be formatted any way you like, for instance they can be from a characters point of view, just make sure they do not cover more than a year, or contradict a previous post in any way.
8. You cannot kill a character out of the blue unless it contributes to the story. For instance, a character can not die from poisoning unless there is are previously mentioned plots to kill that character. Also no family tree extinctions.
9. Please no one sentence updates. And if you are publishing a shorter update that focuses on one area, then please title that one around a month. Ex: March 1484.
10. Have fun!
I was inspired to create this collaborative timeline after discovering an old collaborative timeline with the same POD. I am also definitely an Edwardian Yorkist, so an extended and glorious reign of Edward V is something that really intrigues me.
