Three Suns of York

hree Sun’s were seen at Mortimer`s cross on the morning of 2nd of Feb 1461- the morning of an important battle which would help Edward IV become King. The appearance of the Three Sun’s frightened Edward’s troops, although he convinced them that God was on their side as this was a sign of the Holy Trinity. Later Edward used the Three Sun’s as his symbol “The Sun in Splendour”. It was thought that the Sun’s represented himself and his two brothers George and Richard III, the three Son’s of York!
