Plot Summary 1485-1499

Richard III has been killed in the Battle of Bosworth, and his niece Elizabeth of York  must marry the new king Henry Tudor to finally end the Wars of the Roses. Lizzie bears him a son, Arthur, but Henry’s rule remains less than secure. He imprisons young Edward “Teddy”, the son of George, Duke of Clarence in the Tower, and sends Lizzie’s mother, the Queen Dowager Elizabeth to Bermondsey Abbey.

Lizzie and Henry have a daughter, Margaret and a son, Henry. Rebellion builds as a boy claiming to be the lost Richard appears and is acknowledged by Lizzie’s aunt, Margaret of Burgundy. His claim is embraced by James IV of Scotland and other monarchs. After the death of the Dowager Queen Elizabeth, Lizzie inspires Henry’s men to fight against the pretender. Henry is ultimately triumphant. Charged as traitors, Warbeck and Teddy are executed.
