Description

The White Queen is a riveting portrayal of one of the most dramatic and turbulent times in English history. A story of love and lust, seduction and deception, betrayal and murder, it is uniquely told through the perspective of three different, yet equally relentless women - Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort and Anne Neville. In their quest for power, they will scheme, manipulate and seduce their way onto the English throne. The year is 1464, before the Tudor dynasty ruled the country, and war has been ravaging throughout England over who is the rightful King. It is a bitter dispute between two sides of the same family, The House of York and The House of Lancaster. The House of York’s young and handsome Edward IV is crowned King of England with the help of the master manipulator, Lord Warwick “The Kingmaker.” But when Edward falls in love with a beautiful Lancastrian commoner, Elizabeth Woodville, Warwick’s plan to control the throne comes crashing down. A violent, high-stakes struggle ensues between Elizabeth, her most fierce adversary, Lancastrian Margaret Beaufort, and Anne Neville, the pawn in her father’s power game - each woman vying for the crown.

  • Seriously LOVE this series!!

    First of all I love period pieces that are factually based and really well done and The White Queen is no exception!! Being a limited series made for TV I expected it to be low budget and on the cheesy side but I was SO happy that I was wrong! Not only does it not look low budget, but the most important thing is that it is incredibly well acted and the casting is really well done. I was very pleasantly surprised with the performance quality of the main cast, this series really does have great acting in my opinion. Not only is the acting fantastic, but the chemistry between Elizabeth (Rebecca Ferguson) and Edward IV (Max Irons) truly is exceptional, the viewer is transported to another time and can really feel the immense amount of love these two had for one another. These two actors really are fantastic, both together and singularly, and I honestly would love to see them paired up again in a future project! There are two more series that continue the story line (The White Princess and The Spanish Princess) but this, in my opinion, is by far the best of the bunch in terms of acting and chemistry. If you like period pieces, especially ones based on real events and fantastically acted, then this series is a definite MUST SEE!!!
  • Amazing Historical Series

    Amazing series on the power behind kings. The power of women. I have always been interested on the history of England. This is a great summary on what comes before the Tudors. The war of the roses between the Yorks and Lancasters. What a paradox that Margaret Beaufort - an extremely devoted Catholic- brings with the power of prayer the Tudors to the throne who later expel the Catholic Church of England to establish the Church of Anne Boleyn.

    I enjoyed this series very much, but was very happy to hear that it is continuing. Not gonna lie, less than thrilled that from what I've read EVERYONE of the main characters have been recast. Children, of course, they grow up, but the other characters? What for, and whose less than brilliant idea was that ?? Don't know whether I'll be bothering with this.
  • Beautifully done

    I enjoyed HBO's "The Tudor's" very much, and decided to try "The White Queen", which I had heard very little about. I have to admit, I was hooked from the first episode! It has all the elements of engaging drama I love-romance, intrigue, duplicity, and epic battle scenes! Is this completely historically accurate? Um, no. If I want that, I'll go to The History Channel. This delectable series is for those of you out there who want to just escape for a time and be thoroughly entertained! Enjoy!
