Description

Anne Neville was the queen to England's most notorious kings, Richard III. Shakespeare made her marriage truly remarkable - 'Was ever woman wooed thus?' - as her husband's killer allured the sorrowing widow. In addition to killing her first husband Richard also helped kill her father, father-in-law, and brother-in-law, imprisoned her mother, and was suspected of poisoning Anne herself. Living less than thirty years, she packed into her short life incident enough for many adventurous careers, but always, apparently, as a passive instrument of a succession of others. This biography seeks to tell the story of her life properly, to uncover the real Anne Neville and the remarkable twists and turns of her fraught and ultimately tragic life.show more
