Detail from The Battle of Edgcote - Original Painting by Graham Turner
"The Earl of Pembroke behaved himself like a hardy knight, and expert captain, but his brother Sir Richard Herbert so valiantly acquitted himself, that with his poleaxe in his hand (as his enemies did afterwards report) he was by fine force passed through the battle of his adversaries, and without any mortal wound returned. If every one of his followers and companions in arms, had done but half the acts, which he that day by his noble prowess achieved, the Northmen had obtained neither valour or victory…" Hall
The Battle of Edgcote - Print from an original painting by Graham Turner The Battle of Edgcote Ref: Gic-G307

As Sir Richard Herbert cuts his way through the rebel army, his brother (the Earl of Pembroke) fighting nearby, banners bearing the Earl of Warwick's badges are spotted advancing on the flank*. Warwick, often referred to as the 'Kingmaker' and once one of the Yorkists' principal supporters, had now revealed himself as the force behind the rebellion against his one-time great ally, King Edward IV. The battle weary Yorkists assumed these approaching banners to herald the arrival of the vanguard of Warwick's army, prompting their collapse and rout, and the two Herbert brothers, Sir William and Sir Richard, were captured and taken to Northampton, where they were summarily beheaded the following day on Warwick's orders.
