Some brief overview of book

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Look for special features inside. Join the Random House Readers Circle for author chats and more. Many are familiar with the story of the much-married King Henry VIII of England and the celebrated reign of his daughter, Elizabeth I.

But it is often forgotten that the life of the first Tudor queen, Elizabeth of York, Henrys mother and Elizabeths grandmother, spanned one of Englands most dramatic and perilous periods. Now New York Times bestselling author and acclaimed historian Alison Weir presents the first modern biography of this extraordinary woman, whose very existence united the realm and ensured the survival of the Plantagenet bloodline. Her birth was greeted with as much pomp and ceremony as that of a male heir.

The first child of King Edward IV, Elizabeth enjoyed all the glittering trappings of royalty. But after the death of her father; the disappearance and probable murder of her brothersthe Princes in the Tower; and the usurpation of the throne by her calculating uncle Richard III, Elizabeth found her world turned upside-down She and her siblings were declared bastards. As Richards wife, Anne Neville, was dying, there were murmurs that the king sought to marry his niece Elizabeth, knowing that most people believed her to be Englands rightful queen.

Weir addresses Elizabeths possible role in this and her covert support for Henry Tudor, the exiled pretender who defeated Richard at the Battle of Bosworth and was crowned Henry VII, first sovereign of the House of Tudor. Elizabeths subsequent marriage to Henry united the houses of York and Lancaster and signaled the end of the Wars of the Roses. For centuries historians have asserted that, as queen, she was kept under Henrys firm grasp, but Weir shows that Elizabeth proved to be a model consortpious and generouswho enjoyed the confidence of her husband, exerted a tangible and beneficial influence, and was revered by her son, the future King Henry VIII.

Drawing from a rich trove of historical records, Weir gives a long overdue and much-deserved look at this unforgettable princess whose line descends to todays British monarcha woman who overcame tragedy and danger to become one of Englands most beloved consorts. Praise for Elizabeth of York "Weir tells Elizabeths story well. .

. . She is a meticulous scholar.

. . .

Most important, Weir sincerely admires her subject, doing honor to an almost forgotten queen." The New York Times Book Review "In Alison Weirs skillful hands, Elizabeth of York returns to us, full-bodied and three-dimensional. This is a must-read for Tudor fans!" Historical Novels Review "This bracing biography reveals a woman of integrity, who . .

. helped her husband lay strong groundwork for the success of the new Tudor dynasty. As always in a Weir book, the tenor of the times is drawn with great color and authenticity." Booklist "Weir once again demonstrates that she is an outstanding portrayer of the Tudor era, giving us a fully realized biography of a remarkable woman." Huntington News
