So if …

… Edward IV is either Mr. Rochester or Captain Mainwaring, which other fictional character may be based on one of his contemporaries?
John, 1st Earl of Shrewsbury, posthumously Edward’s father-in-law, who was identified after the battle of Castillon by the gap between his teeth might be Terry-Thomas?
Domenico Mancini, a foreign visitor who barely understood the English language or our law and customs could be Manuel the waiter, perhaps ?

  1. Terry-Thomas wasn’t a fictional character, he was an actor.

    I’m afraid I can’t liken Edward IV to either Mr Rochester or Captain Mainwaring. He was too “available” to be the first, and, when he wanted to be, too efficient to be the second! If I had to find a fictional character for him, I’d go for Toad of Toad Hall!

    I think Richard looks a bit like Hugh Laurie, so perhaps Bertie Wooster might do for him!
