Richard III Characters

Edward Plantagenet is the son of George Duke of Clarence, and is in his grandmother the Duchess of York’s keeping after Clarence’s arrest. 

Ferreting out the fact of his father’s death from his grandmother, he blames the King, as he trusts his uncle Richard’s slanders against Queen Elizabeth. He refuses to weep for the King’s death unless the Queen weeps for his father’s. Richard has him locked up to avoid more succession troubles as he takes the throne.
