James IV of Scotland received Perkin Warbeck at Stirling. Although
most probably Flemish in origin, Warbeck claimed to be Richard of
Shrewsbury, 1st Duke of York, the younger son of Edward IV, who was
imprisoned in the Tower along with his brother Edward V under the
kingship of Richard III. A traditional enemy of England as part of
the 'Auld Alliance' with France, Scotland welcomed this opportunity
to oppose Henry VII.
