But don’t skip our sneak peek of the show!
The White Queen is a fascinating portrayal of one of the most dramatic and turbulent times in English history. Love and lust, seduction and deception, betrayal and murder. It’s all uniquely told through the perspectives of three different, yet equally motivated women – Elizabeth Woodville (played by Rebecca Ferguson), Margaret Beaufort (played by Amanda Hale) and Anne Neville (played by Faye Marsay). In quest of power, they will scheme, manipulate and seduce their way onto the royal English throne.
It is 1464. The Tudor dynasty does not yet rule the country. War over who is the rightful King has been ravaging England. It’s a bitter dispute between two sides of the same family, The House of York and The House of Lancaster.
The House of York’s young and dashing Edward IV (played by Max Irons) is crowned King of England with the guidance of master manipulator, Lord Warwick “The Kingmaker” (played by James Frain). But when Edward falls for the gorgeous Lancastrian commoner, Elizabeth Woodville, Warwick’s plan to seize the throne is ruined. A violent, high-stakes conflict arises between Elizabeth, her fiercest adversary, Lancastrian Margaret Beaufort, and Anne Neville, a pawn in her father’s endless game for power. Each woman vies for the royal crown.
And now for the question: If you could be part of royalty during the Tudor dynasty, what would be your favorite part of the lavish lifestyle? Answer in a comment below by 9 a.m on February 4th for your chance to win. Click here for complete contest rules.
