Richard III featured in Starz drama “The White Queen”
Although the discovery of King Richard IIIâ€™s remains in a car park in Leicester, England has made it known where he found his final resting place, he lives on in the upcoming 10-part historical drama â€śThe White Queen,â€ť scheduled to air this summer on Starz.
Details on the series, provided by Starz, are as follows:
â€śThe White Queenâ€ť is the thrilling story of the women caught up in the ongoing conflict for the throne Â they are some of the most ruthless players in history and will stop at nothing to support their own causes and those of the ones they love.
It is a stunningly rich tale of love and loss, seduction and deception, betrayal and murder, vibrantly woven through the stories of three different yet equally driven women, in their quest for power as they manipulate behind the scenes of history: ÂElizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort and Anne Neville.
The year is 1464 and England has been at war for nine years battling over who is the rightful King of England Â it is a war between two sides of the same family, The House of York and The House of Lancaster.
The House of Yorkâ€™s young and devilishly handsome Edward IV (MAX IRONS Â â€śThe Host,â€ť â€śRed Riding Hoodâ€ť) is crowned King of England with the help of the master manipulator Lord Warwick â€śThe Kingmakerâ€ť (JAMES FRAIN â€“ â€śTrue Blood,â€ť â€śThe Tudorsâ€ť).
But when Edward falls in love and secretly marries a beautiful young widow, the commoner Elizabeth Woodville, introducing the exciting newcomer, REBECCA FERGUSON, Warwickâ€™s plan for control over the English throne comes crashing down around him. Frustrated by the new Queenâ€™s influence he will stop at nothing to maintain his grip on the King.
