Elizabeth Wydeville, Queen consort to Edward IV, has traditionally been portrayed as a scheming opportunist. But was she a cunning vixen or a tragic wife and mother? As this extraordinary biography shows, the first queen to bear the name Elizabeth lived a tragedy, love, and loss that no other queen has since endured. This shocking revelation about the survival of one woman through vilification and adversity shows Elizabeth as a beautiful and adored wife, distraught mother of the two lost Princes in the Tower, and an innocent queen slandered by politicians.5 CPR, Henry VI, 1429a1436: 516. 6 CPR ... 8 CPR, Henry VI, 1436a144:311; Henry VI, 1441a46: 46a7. ... 10 Calendar of the Fine Rolls, HenryVI, 1437a1445 ( His Majestya#39;s Stationery Office, 1937), 9091, 315; Henry VI, 1445a1452: 76, 198.
