Through the fog that envelopes the battlefield at Barnet on Easter Sunday, 14th April 1471, Edward IV leads his army into the thick of the fighting, his banners flying above him and Knights of the Body beside him. Opposing him are soldiers wearing the red livery of the Earl of Warwick, with his distinctive badge of the ragged staff, and in the background can be made out the 'Kingmaker' himself, along with his brother, Marquis Montagu.
