    Elizabeth Woodville ; c. 1437[1] – 8 June 1492) was Queen consort of England as the spouse of King Edward IV from 1464 until his death in 1483. Elizabeth, known as 'The White Queen' was a key figure in the series of dynastic civil wars known as the Wars of the Roses. Her first husband, Sir John Grey of Groby was killed at the Second Battle of St Albans. Her children included the Princes in the Tower and Elizabeth of York; the latter made her the maternal grandmother of Henry VIII.

    Queen Elizabeth Woodville, the "white queen", married to Edward IV, mother to Elizabeth Tudor (who married Henry VII), and grandma to Henry VIII. I think she gets a bad rap in history and she intrigues me.

Joan of Kent, first Princess of Wales (1328-1385) was the wife of Edward the Black Prince. Their marriage was a love match; the Plantagenet sons of Edward III had a tendency to defy convention & follow their heart. While Edward & Joan never became King & Queen of England, their surviving son became Richard II. Edward treated his wife affectionately in public & in private; his letter to her seven years after their wedding began, "My dearest and truest sweetheart and beloved companion."

Edward & Richard ~ the 'Princes in the Tower'. These two boys were, in fact Edward V (uncrowned king of England) and his younger brother Richard, the only two surviving sons of the late Edward IV. History (and the Tudors) tell us that the boys were murdered some time after 1483 while resident in the Tower of London, and give the likely culprit as their uncle, King Richard III. Historians continue to debate the issue; I point the finger at Henry VII! From Rob. Totally agree.
