  RICHARD NEVILLE, EARL OF WARWICK - LoveToKnow Article on RICHARD NEVILLE, EARL OF WARWICK
WARWICK, RICHARD NEVILLE, EARL OF (1428-1471), called " the king-maker," was eldest son of Richard Neville, earl of Salisbury, by Alice, only daughter and heiress of Thomas, the last Montacute earl of Salisbury.
Richard, duke of York, was his uncle, so when York became protector in 1453, and Salisbury was made chancellor, it was natural that Warwick should be one of the council.
Yet when Richard of York was disposed to claim the crown, it was, according to Waurin, Warwick who decided the discussion in favor of a compromise, perhaps from loyalty to Henry, or perhaps from the wish not to change a weak sovereign for a strong.
