English royalty, queen consort of Henry VII. Daughter of Edward IV and Elizabeth Woodville. She married Henry on January 18, 1486 at Westminster, symbolically ending the Wars of the Roses by joining the houses of York and Lancaster under the house of Tudor. Their marriage appears to have been a happy one, and they had 7 children, four of whom survived to adulthood. Elizabeth died at the Tower of London on her 37th birthday. Henry, despite his reputation for thrift, honoured her with a lavish funeral.
