A picture emerged that supported the proposition that she had a relationship with King Edward IV. For example, the king appears to have given her land. Also he sent presents to her former father-in-law, Lord Sudeley, while Eleanor was alive — though following her death he changed tack and destroyed Lord Sudeley.

My research on the bigamy accusations led me to investigate all the other alleged stories about Edward IV and his private life. This is a problem, because some historians have used this birth date to back a claim that Edward himself was illegitimate. A political story, promoted by the French government and other opponents of Edward IV after he became king of England, hinted that his mother had a love affair with an archer.

When I sought out evidence for the date in question, I discovered that actually only one 15th-century source mentions 28 April Unfortunately, that source erroneously claims that the day in question was a Monday.

In short, I believe we can no longer claim to know for certain precisely when Edward was born. However, letters written by the Duke of York to King Charles VII of France — attempting and failing to set up a prestigious marriage for Edward with one of the daughters of the king of France — indicate that the duke considered Edward to be his son. That point is proved even more clearly by the wording that the duke used.

In the surviving letters, he repeatedly refers to Edward as his son and heir. In his own writing, Edward naturally addressed the duke as his father. His letters suggest that a good relationship existed between them. When the Duke of York was killed inyoung Edward was still unmarried — and remained so when he became king of England. Edward IV therefore found himself confronted by a fruitless relationship.

The cousin in question was Henry Beaufort, Duke of Somerset. A wealth of clear contemporary evidence suggests that Edward loved Henry and that the two men slept together. This is by no means the only instance of an English king having a same-sex relationship. Likewise the relationship between Edward IV and the Duke of Somerset aroused opposition in some quarters. This led to an attack on the Duke of Somerset, which finally helped to break up his relationship with the king.

More even went as far as to claim that Edward IV was believed, in some quarters, to have secretly married Elizabeth Lucy. More goes on to say that the claim was false — making Richard III a usurper. While the offering of the English crown to Richard III was indeed based upon evidence that Edward IV had committed bigamy, the evidence clearly shows that the alleged first and legal wife of the young king was not called Elizabeth Lucy. She was, in fact, Lady Eleanor Talbot.

But, as in the case of Elizabeth Lucy, not a single shred of contemporary evidence exists to show that Edward IV had anything to do with Mistress Shore. Unlike Elizabeth Lucy, however, Mistress Shore definitely did exist. Her maiden name was Elizabeth Lambert. A marriage for her was arranged by her family, and her first husband was called William Shore. Unfortunately, that marriage proved difficult, and the young wife appealed to the church for its annulment.

Eventually she married again. Curiously, a of sources prove that her first husband, William Shore, was a supporter of Edward IV, and worked with him. However, no contemporary sources ever claim that Mistress Shore had a relationship with the king. However, that too proves to be untrue. The king is recorded as only acknowledging one illegitimate child during his reign. It was a boy, but his name is unknown. So he cannot have been the illegitimate child who was accorded formal recognition by Edward IV himself. Curiously, however, one or two girls also seem to have been recognised as illegitimate daughters of Edward IV years later, during the reign of Henry VII.

For all the question marks hanging over her marriage to the king, Elizabeth Widville seems to have exercised a great deal of influence over Edward IV. Despite later stories that he had many love affairs, from until his death inEdward seems to have been rather fond of his wife.

However, their status was always questioned in some quarters. One result was that George was imprisoned and executed — apparently on the orders of Elizabeth Widville herself. A contemporary report written by Italian diplomat Domenico Mancini certainly suggests that this was the case.

But in 15th-century England, regency powers were always ased to the senior living prince of the blood royal — not to the mother. To find out more. To find out more about the author, visit www.
