Where the Tudor Red-Gold Hair came from

A legendary beauty, Elizabeth Woodville was the first child of Sir Richard Woodville (later the first Earl Rivers) and Jaquetta of Luxembourg. She was a maid of honour to Margaret of Anjou. Her first marriage was to Sir John Grey of Groby (died in battle 1461). She secretly married King Edward IV of England in April 1464, and was crowned Queen in May 1465. My 15th great grandmother.

What Really Happened to the Princes in the Tower?

Edward and Richard were the young children of Edward IV and Elizabeth Woodville in the 15th century. Edward V stood to take the throne but both princes were considered illegitimate after an Act from Parliament saying Edward IV and Elizabeth's marriage was invalid and Richard III took the throne in his nephew's place. Both boys were never seen again after 1483. Years later, small skeletons were found underneath the stairs of the chapel in the White Tower, the main keep of the Tower of London.
