Family tree of Elizabeth Woodville and Edward IV. Their daughter, Elizabeth of York, was Henry VIII's mother. Woodville was also mother to the famous "Princes in the Tower," both of whom are widely believed to have been murdered by their uncle, Richard III, so that they could never inherit the throne. Richard III was killed during the Battle of Bosworth in 1485 by Henry VI (Henry VIII's father), thus ending the Plantaganent dynasty and spawning the Tudor dynasty.
The Battersea Shield was found in the area around Chelsea Bridge, London. Dated to 350 BC, it seems that an object this elaborate would belong to a member of the warrior elite or even a Celtic chief. The Battersea shield is from the La Tene era which is characterised by the spirals, circles, interwoven knots and lattices that remain in modern Celtic art.
