Storyline

A portrayal of one of the most dramatic and turbulent times in English history. A story of love and lust, seduction and deception, betrayal and murder, it is uniquely told through the perspective of three different, yet equally relentless women - Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort and Anne Neville. In their quest for power, they will scheme, manipulate and seduce their way onto the English throne. The year is 1464, before the Tudor dynasty ruled the country, and war has been ravaging throughout England over who is the rightful King. It is a bitter dispute between two sides of the same family, The House of York and The House of Lancaster. The House of York's young and handsome Edward IV is crowned King of England with the help of the master manipulator, Lord Warwick "The Kingmaker." But when Edward falls in love with a beautiful Lancastrian commoner, Elizabeth Woodville, Warwick's plan to control the throne comes crashing down. A violent, high-stakes struggle ensues between ...

Trivia

In an astounding coincidence, Emma Frost, the writer of "The White Queen" BBC series, shares her name with a famous Marvel Comics "X-men" character, "Emma Frost, the White Queen," a member of the mutant clans. Yet this show, based on 16th-century historical personages, is in no way related to Marvel Comics or the mutants. See more »

Goofs

In various scenes, Henry Stafford(Michael Maloney) is seen with English Pointer dogs. This particular breed didn't exist during the 15th century. The English Pointer breed was created during the early/mid 17th century, mixing various mastiff breeds (including the "great Dane") and the Spanish "perdiguero". See more »

the best show
27 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am absolutely obsessed with this show! I love it and can not get enough! I was ify about it at first even though I always find historic shows and movies very interesting, then watched it on demand and was in amazement how fantastic it was. I am going to be upset when the season ends. Will definitely be watching the entire season again thanks to starz on demand. Max Irons is an amazing actor as is his father. I have a new celebrity crush. The entire cast are great actors. I keep telling everyone I know to watch the show. It is definitely my favorite show. Thank you to Starz for another entertaining show. I just hope that they continue the show with many more seasons and episodes. It is by far the best show on television right now. It is historic, entertaining, intriguing, and makes me never want to stop watching. I am not yappy when the episode is over.
