A Historic Love // Henry VII and Elizabeth of York
King Henry VII is credited with ending the Wars of the Roses and returning political stability to England.
Henry’s marriage to Elizabeth of York, daughter of former King Edward IV, assisted Henry in achieving this stability, and the marriage produced possibly eight children, about half of whom grew to adulthood.
Elizabeth was the sister of the famously tragic “Princes of the Tower,” and while none of her children experienced such extensively unfortunate fates, her children’s lives were littered with unusual occurrences and misfortunes.
