Claimed Identity

Perkin Warbeck's card selector

It wasn't just Perkin self-asserting. For their own (dynastic and/or political) reasons, lots of 3rd parties chose to profess themselves convinced of his authenticity - and even affirmed it themselves.

Just goes to show that sometimes you have to take even the claims of authorities with a certain amount of skepticism and qualify your confidence.
