From Medieval England

The Earl of Warwick (and the son of the Earl of Salisbury), Richard Neville, known as “The Kingmaker” during the War of the Roses, sought to wield considerable political power through the weaknesses of Lancastrian and Yorkist kings. He helped Edward IV become king, and then when the King decided to display some independence, Neville threw a fit, switched sides, and couldn’t understand why some unspectacular leader that he made king dared to defy him. There are some similarities between Neville and prominent modern day New Jersey political leader, but no one ever called Neville “Bridge Boy.”
