This book aims to present the figures of Jacquetta, Duchess of Bedford, Elizabeth Woodville, wife of Edward IV, and Margaret Beaufort, mother of Henry VII. In her essay on Jacquetta, the author tries to use original documents, archeology, and myth and histories of witchcraft to create the biography of the young duchess who survived two wars and two reigns to Become the first lady at two rival courts. David Baldwin intends to present the story of Elizabeth Woodville, the first commoner to marry the king of England for love, and Michael Jones aims to write about Margaret Beaufort, the almost-unknown matriarch of the House of Tudor. The book seeks to include portraits and illustrations of rare source materials.
