Known as the “White Queen,” Elizabeth Woodville was a skilled seductress. Her first husband was killed by King Edward IV, whom Elizabeth then lured into marriage with her irresistible beauty. Because she was considered a commoner, their marriage was a scandal in the kingdom — but she held her own. After several decades, many years of childbearing and the death of her husband, Elizabeth finally stepped out of the public eye to make way for her daughter: the “White Princess.”
King Edward School: Originally called Agnes Street School, the first building was replaced by this structure and re-named to honor the late King Edward VII. It is at the corner of King Street West and Agnes Street.
