Where: Monument Valley Park, Colorado Springs

The Kingmaker's Tourney is an annual tournament held near the anniversary of the Battle of Towton, which took place on March 29th, 1461. It is estimated to have been the bloodiest battle ever fought on British soil, claiming nearly 1% of the country's entire population in casualties in a single day.

An important personage participating in that battle was Richard Neville, the Earl of Warwick, who later earned the moniker "Kingmaker." To learn more about him, check out the Wikipedia Page.

In past years, the Kingmaker's Tournament has been organized on the basis of individual challenges based on weapon choice. Three weapons combinations have been contested: sword, sword and shield, and any weapon.
