The Woodvilles: Behind the Myth with Susan Higginbotham

Elizabeth Woodville - eldest daughter of Jacquetta of Luxembourg and Richard Woodville, Baron of Rivers

John Duke of Bedford (1389-1435), brother of Henry V of England. Married Anne of Burgundy as his first wife, and, as his second spouse, and her first, Jacquetta of Luxembourg, with no issue resulting from either marriage. It was he who caused Joan of Arc to be burned in Rouen as a witch. Jacquetta was the mother of Elizabeth Woodville by her second marriage, making her the grandmother of Elizabeth of York, the consort of Henry VII.

Richard Woodville Born at Maidstone in Kent, he was the son of another Richard Wydeville, chamberlain to the Duke of Bedford. After the duke died, the younger Richard married the widowed duchess, Jacquetta of Luxembourg (1416–1472). This was initially a secret marriage, for which the couple were fined when it came to public notice.

Richard Woodville, 1st Earl Rivers and his wife, Jaquetta of Luxembourg. They are the parents of Elizabeth Woodville and Prince Arthur's maternal great-grandparents. Richard was a knight in the household of Jacquetta's first husband, the Duke of Bedford, whom she married after the Duke died and had something like 14 children with. Love this story!
