The Lady in the Tower

Faye Marsay as Anne Neville (1456-1485), Princess of Wales, Duchess of Gloucester and Queen of England

As a member of the powerful House of Neville, she was caught up in the Wars of the Roses fought between the House of York and House of Lancaster for the English crown. Her father Warwick betrothed her as a girl to Richard, youngest brother of King Edward IV, then later arranged her marriage to Edward, the son of King Henry VI.

After the deaths of Edward and Warwick, she married Richard. She became Queen when Richard seized the crown in June 1483, but died in March 1485, five months before Richard was killed at Bosworth Field. Her only child, with Richard, was Edward of Middleham (1473-1484), who predeceased her.
