    Edward IV was rather too fond of his favourite foods and wines as he reached middle age, and he became seriously overweight. The king died, perhaps of a stroke at Westminster on 9 April 1483 CE, aged just 40. He was buried at Windsor Castle and succeeded by his eldest son, Edward, then only 12 years old (b. 1470 CE). The young Edward V of England w...
