Following his seco nd release from imprisonment, he led the Yorkist forces in the north of En gland, defeating the Lancastrians at Hedgeley Moor and again at Hexham (bo th 1465). In reward for driving out the Lancastrians, Neville was creat ed Earl of Northumberland. This title had long been held by the Percy fami ly, but they were in disgrace. However, when Henry Percy was rehabilitat ed in 1470, Neville was forced to give up the earldom and many important o ffices in favor of his former foe. He was in compensation created Marque ss of Montagu, but without suitable estates to support such a dignity. N ow set against Edward IV, he joined his brother Warwick in the restorati on of Henry VI.
