Tudor History with Claire Ridgway

Did Elizabeth of York really have an affair with Richard III?

August 20, 2021
Thank you to Sebnem for asking "Did Elizabeth of York really have an affair with Richard III?", something which has been popularised by the "Cousins' War" series of novels by Philippa Gregory and the TV adaptations of them. 
 
Is there any truth to this idea? Was Elizabeth of York in love with Richard III? Did Richard and his niece become lovers? And did Richard III poison Anne Neville, his queen? Historian Claire Ridgway looks at what history tells us about Elizabeth of York and her uncle, Richard III.
