Flemish Commoner Perkin Warbeck, who claims to be the Duke of Kent, the rightful king, remains the pretender to the throne and a thorn in Henry's side. He has been a guest at the court of James IV but is wearing out his welcome. He tries vainly to get renewed support in Ireland but is rebuffed although the Spanish Ambassador does offer him comfortable asylum but no military support. His last chance is to lead the ragtag peasant army from Cornwall, which is marching on London to protest Henry's heavy-handed taxation policies and is looking for a leader to rally around.
