    Elizabeth Woodville Queen of England & wife of Edward IV. Their children included the Princes in the Tower and Elizabeth of York; by the latter she was maternal grandmother of Henry VIII and great-grandmother of King Edward VI, Queen Mary I of England and Queen Elizabeth I and the great-great-grandmother of Mary, Queen of Scots. Through her daughter, she is the ancestor of every English monarch since Henry VIII, every Scottish monarch since James V of Scotland.

    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.
