Surprised to discover that there was no modern biography of the first Tudor queen and mother of the infamous Henry VIII, Alison Weir has written the first in-depth, engaging book about this woman who was born a York but died a Tudor. Daughter of the last Yorkish king, sister to the murdered princes in the tower, and wife of the first Tudor king, Elizabeth of York's life formed a bridge between the end of the House of York and the beginning of the Tudor dynasty.
