Question from Lauren - Non-fiction views on Perkin Warbeck as Richard of York

I'm not familiar with Sandra Worth's work, but enjoyed reading her interview. Thanks, Lara and Sandra, it's great to read author's views on here!

My question is - do any historians in non-fiction books argue that "Perkin Warbeck" was really Richard, duke of York?

That is a good question, I am frequently amazed at the way the Tudor version of events during the later part of the 'War of the Roses' is so blithely accepted by serious academics as solid fact. I feel that the whole issue of Yorkist 'pretenders' requires a more serious study.
