    Writers from William Shakespeare to best-selling modern authors have tried to show what sort of man Richard Neville must have been, with quite different results. Sometimes Warwick is portrayed as the skilled political manipulator behind the throne, shaping events for his own advantage. Others describe him as the last of the barons, ruling his fiefdom like an uncrowned king. Whatever the truth, his story is one of adventure, power, and influence at the heart of one of the most dangerous times in the history of England.
