It contains many facts, figures, and insights into the turbulent times of the Wars of the Roses, as well as Henry Tudor's victory over Richard III and her subsequent marriage to her uncle's nemesis, paving the way for a more peaceful time for the country, and the start of the Tudor dynasty, and through Elizabeth's daughters, future monarchs too.
The book also, however, looks at the roller coaster of her early years, partly as a princess, partly living in sanctuary, in fear of her life - after seeing her two brothers taken to The Tower, and never being seen again.
Highly recommended for those interested in Mediaeval history, but also those interested in a woman who lived an extraordinary life.
I have pre ordered the Alison Weir book on Elizabeth of York, which is due out in November. It will be interesting to see how it compares to this one.
