In November , the Pretender (from the french for ‘claimant’) Perkin Warbeck arrived at the Scottish court, looking for allies in his attempt to win the English throne. Which of course he claimed as Richard IV, younger son of Edward IV.   But Perkin Warbeck was an intriguing and special figure in this early Tudor period. His charge was for raising a rebellion in Cornwall against Henry VII, but his reasoning for the uprising was his "claim" to the English throne. Perkin Warbeck insisted that he was the long lost Richard, Duke of York - one of the Princes in the Tower from years ago.
