Fun Fact: Queen Elizabeth of York

Fun facts about England

Elizabeth of York was the wisest choice to be Queen-consort for King Henry VII of England. The Tudor King took up the claim for the House of Lancaster, while Elizabeth was a member of the House of York and daughter of the deceased King Edward IV. Their children (such as the future King Henry VIII) would become heirs to both dynasties and cement their claim to the throne. While many political marriages often lacked love, King Henry VII was very loyal to his wife. When she died before him, he was so filled with grief that he refused to speak to anyone for days.
