Elizabeth Woodville Meeting Edward IV for the First Time

Imagined Picture of Queen Elizabeth and King Edward IV, Based on Old Legends

By

Medieval Queen Elizabeth Woodville, Queen to Edward IV, depicted meeting her future husband, Edward VI, for the first time. One of the stories about Elizabeth Woodville and Edward IV is that she met him on the side of the road, with her two young sons by her previous marriage, to petition him in a legal matter -- and then charmed him into marriage. This imagined portrait (and much later) is based on that story.
