The Black Knight statue sticks out like a sore thumb in the Leeds City Center. It was dedicated to one, Edward of Woodstruck, eldest son of King Edward III, thus, Edward was the Prince of Wales, the heir to the English throne. He was known as a chivalrous knight at home, but a powerful warrior in battle against the French. He was known to have indiscriminately burned whole French villages to the ground, killing many innocent people, and that is why he earned the sobriquet, "Black Knight." Edward died in 1377, a year before his father, so he never attained the English throne. However, his ten year old son Richard became the English king after the death of Edward III. Richard would go on to be blamed for the War of the Roses pitting the House of York against the House of Lancaster.
