Perkin Warbeck (c. 1474 – 23 November 1499) was a member of the Templar Order in England, and a pretender to the English throne. Born in Flanders, Warbeck pretended to be Richard of Shrewsbury, Duke of York in an attempt to claim the throne as part of a Yorkist Templar plot, conspiring alongside Margaret of York.

Having previously thwarted Lambert Simnel's attempt to claim the throne, King Henry VII foiled the Templars' second plot, quelling Warbeck's uprisings. Warbeck was captured and later hanged on Henry VII's orders.
