- Prince of Wales & Earl of Chester, Jun 1471, Duke of Cornwall 17 Jul 1471.
K.G. 15 May 1475, Earl of March & Earl of Pembroke Jul 1479.
Place and date of death uncertain. The "Boy King" was never crowned but acceded the Throne on 9 Apr 1483 and was deposed 25 June 1483. Because of a power struggle between his paternal uncle Richard, duke of Gloucester and his maternal uncle Anthony Woodville, 2d Earl Rivers, both Edward and his brother, Richard, duke of York (1472-83) were confined in the Tower of London shortly after their father's death in April 1483. They were not seen again outside the tower. They were declared bastards by the duke of Gloucester, who usurped the throne as Richard III in June 1483.
- (Medical):(Presumed) by Duke of Gloucester, later Richard III.
