the queen nobody knows about.

Alison Weir’s biography on Queen Elizabeth of York titled Elizabeth of York: A Tudor Queen and Her World is actually quite good considering there hasn’t been much written on this woman’s life, thus not much to go on. There were a few more “may have’s” than I would have liked, leading me to believe that no one really knows exactly who this queen was, but really how well do we know anyone from the past?

Personally, I enjoy how Elizabeth of York reads like a Life & Style magazine article about the Queen, her children, husband, and the times they lived in. Some historians may not enjoy the abundance of details and Weir’s literary writing style, making this history lesson much less of a bore, but I appreciate it!
