The Black Bull of Clarence is the first heraldic beast in the Queens beast Series to come from a Yorkist King of England. King Edward IV ruled over England twice as a result of the Wars of the Roses. Edward IV was the first Yorkist King of England, and he ruled from 1461 to 1470 prior to the outbreak of war. After the war was settled and he had dethroned King Henry VI, he continued to rule from 1471 until his sudden death.
