Veerle Baetens as Margaret d'Anjou in 'The White Queen' miniseries.
The White Queen, Margaret Beaufort as portrayed by Amanda Hale. I began watching the BBC miniseries on Starz with little to no knowledge of the Wars of the Roses. And not having read Phillippa Gregory's series. With that said, surely I can't be the only one who finds Margaret Beaufort the most interesting and compelling character in the story, and in history for that matter.
Amanda Hale excels as Margaret Beaufort, the mother of king Henry VII ~ Great series on the birth of the dynasty that changed the world.
A legendary beauty, Elizabeth Woodville was the first child of Sir Richard Woodville (later the first Earl Rivers) and Jaquetta of Luxembourg. She was a maid of honour to Margaret of Anjou. Her first marriage was to Sir John Grey of Groby (died in battle 1461). She secretly married King Edward IV of England in April 1464, and was crowned Queen in May 1465.
