The Middletons have nothing on the Woodvilles. The eldest daughter of the essentially middle class family entered a secret marriage with King Edward IV of England, launching the Woodvilles into the Court. Reviled in their day and made infamous by a string of less-than-favorable fictional accounts of their story (The Kingmaker’s Daughter, anyone?), the Woodvilles are the subject of Susan Higginbotham’s new book, The Woodvilles: The War of the Roses and England’s Most Infamous Family. I am eager to start reading it! I am of the opinion that the Woodvilles get a bad reputation–I mean, medieval people, can’t you think of a more creative accusation than witchcraft? It seems like you just call whomever you don’t like a witch.  I would like to see if this book gives us a more impartial opinion of the family.
