The White Queen

The year is 1464 and England has been at war for nine years over who is the rightful King of England. This is a war between two sides of the same family, The House of York and The House of Lancaster in The War of the Roses. The House of York's young and devilishly handsome Edward IV (Max Irons) is crowned King of England with the help of the master manipulator Lord Warwick (James Frain). But when Edward falls in love and secretly marries a beautiful young widow, the commoner Elizabeth Woodville (Rebecca Ferguson), Warwick's plan for control over the English throne comes crashing down around him. Frustrated by the new Queen's influence, he will stop at nothing to maintain his grip on the crown. Meanwhile, Elizabeth's most fierce adversary is the staunchly loyal Lancastrian Margaret Beaufort (Amanda Hale) - a damaged and highly religious woman who would willingly lay down her life to see her young son Henry Tudor take the throne. And then there is Anne Neville (Faye Marsay), Lord Warwick - the Kingmaker's daughter - a pawn in her father's battle for control; who finds her strength and ambition when she takes control of her destiny and marries Edward's younger brother Richard Duke of Gloucester (Aneurin Bernard). Based on Philippa Gregory's "The White Queen", "The Red Queen" and "The Kingmaker's Daughter". 10 episodes.
