of the History of the World from Creation to Woden, with a Genealogy
of Edward IV (The Edward IV Roll) .
England, after June 1461 (Edward IV's coronation) and before May
1464 (his marriage), probably c. 1461
Edward IV on horseback; Christ in Majesty;
the Fall of Man (partial). This
eighteen-foot-long roll consists of eleven vellum membranes glued

in June 1461, it was a powerful statement of his authority and claim
