The White Queen

The White Queen

The White Queen is described as a tale of love and loss, seduction and deception, betrayal and murder woven through the stories of three different yet equally driven women caught up in the ongoing conflict for the throne: Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort and Anne Neville. The year is 1464 and England has been at war for nine years battling over who is the rightful King of England — it is a war between two sides of the same family, The House of York and The House of Lancaster, whose heraldic symbols were a white and red rose, respectively, giving the power struggle its name. The House of York’s young and handsome Edward IV (Irons) is crowned King of England with the help of the master manipulator Lord Warwick “The Kingmaker” (Frain). But when Edward falls in love and secretly marries a beautiful young widow, the commoner Elizabeth Woodville (Ferguson), Warwick’s plan for control over the throne comes crashing down around him. Meanwhile, Woodville becomes a queen with the help of her mother Jacquetta (McTeer), a self-proclaimed sorceress. Elizabeth’s most fierce adversary is the staunchly loyal Lancastrian Margaret Beaufort (Hale), a damaged and highly religious woman who would willingly lay down her life to see her young son Henry Tudor take the throne. And then there is Anne Neville (Marsay), Lord Warwick The Kingmaker’s daughter — a pawn in her father’s battle for control who finds her strength and ambition when she takes control of her destiny and marries the King’s younger brother Richard Duke of York (Aneurin Bernard).
