Warwick once again deployed a decoy to lure the king from London. The Parliament issued attainders for the Yorkist lords, stripping them of land and titles and finding each of them Warwick the Kingmaker book of treason. Warwick and Clarence promptly took ship for Calais with the countess of Warwick, Anne Nevilleand the heavily pregnant Isabel, Duchess of Clarence, promptly fled the country. It was also significant because it resulted in the capture of the king, and the death of Somerset. He appointed his uncle as commander of the garrison, allowing himself to attend to matters of diplomacy and state. Somerset claimed part of the Despenser inheritance and in used force to seize Glamorgan and Morgannwg.

Edward IV's sister Margaret Duchess of Burgundy, who must have been well informed, in the course of writing to her mother-in-law a few days after the battle, states that the Earl of Warwick was captured at the end of the battle, and whilst in the course of being taken alive to Edward "some men Warwick the Kingmaker book him and killed him". In fact, it seems that after the coronation, she was not ever present in her household, which means that her presence at the coronation had been an exception made for the special occasion. Slowly Warwick began to arouse unrest in certain areas. He marched through lands loyal to his cause, raising an army as he went south to face the Earl of Warwick. Another had married Edmund Beaufort, Duke of Somerset. The seeds of discord were sown when Warwick attempted to negotiate a marriage alliance with France for Edward for the hand of Bona of Savoy, only to discover on his return that the king had secretly married Elizabeth Woodvillethe widow of Sir John Grey, a Lancastrian knight.

Warwick favoured an alliance with the French. This turned out to be disastrous for the Lancastrians. Southampton also refused. George Neville, Bishop of Exeter, was confirmed in his post as chancellor by King Edward, and in was promoted to the archbishopric of York. He marched through lands loyal to his cause, raising an army as he went south to face the Earl of Warwick. Warwick took both parts of the inheritance, securing Glamorgan and Abergavenny.

A modus vivendi had been achieved between Warwick and the king for some months, but the restoration of Henry Percy to Montagu's earldom of Northumberland prevented any chance of full reconciliation. He had repaired to his government at Calais, where his power and popularity were unlimited, and which he had now made his headquarters.
