Elizabeth York, The Last White Rose by Alison Weir


In the world of Tudor fiction and non-fiction, Alison Weir is a literary titan. Historian and author of 33 books which have sold many millions of copies, she has brought the tumult and political machinations to the page vividly for her readers.

I have been reading Weir since my teens and it was an honour to chat and laugh with her to celebrate her newest title, Elizabeth of York, The Last White Rose – the first instalment in a new trilogy focusing on the mother of Henry VIII. Elizabeth’s life spanned huge moments in history, she was a critical figure who is frequently overlooked. No more does she lie in the shadows as Weir casts her spotlight bringing her to life.

An English princess born into war, she is a character within a rich tapestry of personalities and legend. This is a hefty volume running to 500 pages and with good reason – you almost can’t quite believe that one person could live through so many pivotal moments. Her brothers are the lost princes of the tower, a mystery that continues to pervade and haunt academics, historian and investigators alike.

Tune in tonight for our interview with Alison – it’s one you won’t want to miss.
