Perkin Warbeck (circa 1474 - 23 November 1499) was a pretender to the English throne during the reign of King Henry VII of England. Traditional belief claims that he was an impostor, pretending to be Richard of Shrewsbury, 1st Duke of York, the younger son of King Edward IV of England, but was in fact a Fleming born in Tournai around 1474. The Perkin Warbeck of the traditional tale was claimed to be the son of a French official, John de Werbecque and Katherine de Faro.
