The last of the barons
by Lytton, Edward Bulwer Lytton, Baron, 1803-1873

this is a historical romance set in 1467 (ff.) in england, featuring all the principal historical figures of the time. the last of the barons is the earl of warwick.

Quote:
Richard Neville, 16th Earl of Warwick KG (22 November 1428 – 14 April 1471), known as Warwick the Kingmaker, was an English nobleman, administrator, and military commander. The son of Richard Neville, 5th Earl of Salisbury, Warwick was the wealthiest and most powerful English peer of his age, with political connections that went beyond the country's borders. One of the leaders in the Wars of the Roses, originally on the Yorkist side but later switching to the Lancastrian side, he was instrumental in the deposition of two kings, a fact which later earned him his epithet of "Kingmaker" to later generations.
