battle of Blore Heath


Quick Reference

1459.

*Warwick's father, the earl of Salisbury, supported the duke of York in 1459 when he rebelled against Henry VI. He marched from Yorkshire to join York, who was in Wales, near Ludlow. Royalist forces mustered under Lord Audley at Market Drayton to prevent the junction and attacked Salisbury's men on Blore Heath on 23 September. Audley was defeated and slain, and Salisbury joined York.
