The Battle of Towton was fought during the Wars of the Roses on 29 March 1461, in Yorkshire. It was the "largest and bloodiest battle ever fought on English soil". More than 50,000 soldiers from the Houses of York and Lancaster fought for hours in a snowstorm, which was Palm Sunday. A newsletter reported that 28,000. The engagement brought about a change in England—Edward IV displaced Henry VI as King of England, driving the head of the Lancastrians and his key supporters out of the country.
Elizabeth Woodville (also spelled Wydeville or Widvile; c. 1437 – 8 June 1492) was Queen consort of England as the spouse of King Edward IV from 1464 until his death in 1483. Elizabeth was a key figure in the series of dynastic civil wars known as the Wars of the Roses. Her first husband, Sir John Grey of Groby was killed at the Second Battle of St Albans. Her children included the Princes in the Tower and Elizabeth of York; the latter made her the maternal grandmother of Henry VIII.
