Slide1

Edmund de la Pole The Earl of Suffolk

(1499 – 1506)

Slide2

What happened?

1499

-

the Earl of Warwick was executed – the last of the major York claimants to the

throne

After

his execution, the next claimant was Edmund de la Pole, Earl of Suffolk.

Edmund

de la

Pole was

the brother of the Earl of Lincoln who had been killed in the attempted

Simnel

Rebellion, meaning his family had a

reputation of

betrayal

Slide3

What happened? (continued)

Suffolk

gave an outward appearance of loyalty to Henry VII but he had been angered by Henry’s refusal to elevate him to a dukedom as his father had

held

1501 - Edmund fled the Kingdom of England

along with his brother, Richard

H

e

sought the help of Emperor Maximilian I, the Holy Roman Emperor

Supporters of the York family gathered around the Earl of Suffolk in Flanders in the knowledge that they were safe under the protection of Maximilian

Slide4

Severity of threat

Due to the death of his brother in 1487, Edmund became the leading Yorkist claimant to the throne

De

la Pole

had

a direct link with the previous Yorkist kings, whereas Henry only had an illegitimate link through the

Beauforts

He

was more of a threat than both

Simmnel

and Warbeck, as their claims could be falsified, whereas Edmund had a direct link to the throne

Slide5

Outcome:

Suffolk’s relations who had remained in England were all arrested and

imprisoned - in

January 1504, 51 men were

attainted

1506 - Maximillian's

son, Philip of Burgundy, was a guest of Henry VII after being blown off course while

sailing

Henry

persuaded Burgundy to accept a deal in return for his release – surrender the Earl of

Suffolk

Slide6

Outcome: (continued)

Philip was persuaded by Henry to hand over the Earl of Suffolk on the grounds that Edmund only be imprisoned and not harmed

Suffolk was imprisoned in the Tower of London but Henry VII did not have him

executed

When Henry VIII became king he didn’t feel bound to this agreement and had Edmund executed in 1513

Edmund’s brother,

Richard de la Pole declared himself Earl of Suffolk and was the leading Yorkist pretender until he died at the Battle of Pavia on 24 February 1525
