Description
She was the first Tudor queen, and the namesake of her granddaughter Elizabeth I. Elizabeth of York was the first-born child of King Edward IV, and like her brothers, the Princes in the Tower, she was declared a bastard after Richard III took the throne. But exiled pretender Henry Tudor pledged to make her his wife, before defeating Richard at Bosworth Field and claiming the throne as Henry VII. Alison Weir addresses Elizabeth's possible support for Henry's bid, how their subsequent marriage united the houses of York and Lancaster, and how, despite a widely held view that Elizabeth was marginalized as a ruler, she actually asserted a tangible and beneficial influence, not least on her son Henry VIII. The most popular female historian in Britain, with a particular penchant for the drama of the Tudor era, Weir has given us a veritable procession of highly readable histories—including The Six Wives of Henry VIII, Elizabeth the Queen, The Lady in the Tower, and Mary Boleyn—and gripping historical fiction like Innocent Traitor and The Captive Queen. Both her histories and her historical novels are known for their wealth of detail and for Weir's ability to create suspense even when you already know how the story will end.

"This bracing biography reveals a woman of integrity, who ... helped [her husband] lay strong groundwork for the success of the new Tudor dynasty. As always in a Weir book, the tenor of the times is drawn with great color and authenticity."—Booklist
