Richard's position could not be secure whilst his nephews lived. There seems to be no reasonable doubt that early in August Edward V and his brother Richard (whom Elizabeth Woodville had been forced to surrender) were murdered by their uncle's orders in the Tower. Attempts have been made to clear Richard's memory. But the report of the princes' death was believed in England at the time, "for which cause king Richard lost the hearts of the people"

Death mask Edward III - (1312 to 1377)
Edward II (25 April 1284 – 21 September 1327), was King of England from 1307 until he was deposed by his wife Isabella in January 1327. He was the sixth Plantagenet king, in a line that began with the reign of Henry II. Between the strong reigns of his father Edward I and son Edward III, the reign of Edward II was considered by some to be disastrous for England, marked by alleged incompetence, political squabbling and military defeats.
The government of Isabella and Mortimer was so precarious that they dared not leave the deposed king in the hands of their political enemies. On 3 April, Edward II was removed from Kenilworth and entrusted to the custody of two subordinates of Mortimer, later imprisoned at Berkeley Castle in Gloucestershire where, it was generally believed, he was murdered by an agent of Isabella and Mortimer on 11 October 1327,

Edward II of England, from Cassell's History of England, Century Edition, page 365 - published circa 1902
Edward II (reigned 1307-1327). He was the sixth Plantagenet king and his reign was considered by some to be disastrous for England, marked by alleged incompetence, political squabbling and military defeats. His army was devastatingly defeated at Bannockburn, freeing Scotland from English control and allowing Scottish forces to raid unchecked throughout the north of England. In addition to these disasters, Edward II is remembered for his death in Berkeley Castle, allegedly by murder.
King Edward II (1307-1327). After his defeat at Bannockburn by Robert the Bruce of Scotland in 1314, he was dethroned and imprisoned by his wife, Queen Isabella and her lover, Roger Mortimer. After Mortimer's execution, rumors began to stir about Edward's death with many suspecting he was murdered in Berkeley Castle. One famous rumor was that he was murdered by having a red-hot iron inserted into his anus. However no proof was found.
