Best Answer

Elizabeth Woodville was the queen consort of King Edward IV, which was a feat in itself, as she was the first commoner to marry a king of England. She was a central figure in the War of the Roses.

She was the mother of King Edward V, who died as a child in the Tower of London with his brother, Richard of Shrewsbury.

She was also the mother of Elizabeth of York, whose marriage to Henry Tudor was important as it provided the dynastic solution needed to end the War of the Roses. Henry Tudor became King Henry VII, and one of their sons was King Henry VIII.
