Elizabeth Woodville Mother Of The Princes In The Tower (Paperback)
|Author: David Baldwin|
|A historical character whose life no novelist would ever have dared to write. A woman whose contemporaries portrayed her as a sorceress demands the attention of all who are interested in medieval and royal history.|
From the Publisher:
This is the first new account of Elizabeth's life for over fifty years and David Baldwin sets out to reveal the true story of this complex and intriguing woman. Hers was certainly a dramatic life with dizzying reversals of fortune; from poverty in 1461 to queenship in 1464, followed by deposition, restoration, and conflicts with Richard III and Henry VII before spending her final years in religious seclusion. There is also the issue of her two sons, the infamous 'Princes in the Tower', and the controversy surrounding their disappearance.
