about this item

When Edward of York seized the English throne in 1461, he could have chosen any bride. For three years he had a succession of mistresses, while foreign princesses lined up to be considered for his queen. Enter Elizabeth Woodville, a widow five years his elder. While her contemporaries and later historians have been divided over her character, none deny her beauty. When she petitioned the king to restore her son’s inheritance, Edward was spellbound. Conscious of her honor, Elizabeth repelled his advances. Edward’s answer was to make her his wife. Elizabeth has attracted extreme criticism from hostile chroniclers. This enlightening book reassesses the tumultuous lives of the real White Queen and the king she captivated.
