Members of the Woodville family - particularly Jacquetta and Elizabeth Woodville - are well known to readers of historical fiction, and myths and unsubstantiated rumours about the family abound. This book presents a well-researched account of the Woodvilles and their important roles in 15th century English history, from 1437 when Richard Woodville married Jacquetta, a widow and a duchess, well above Richard's social status, to the death of Katherine, wife of Jasper Tudor, Duke of Bedford, in 1497.
