Edward and Richard were the young children of Edward IV and Elizabeth Woodville in the 15th century.

Family tree of Elizabeth Woodville and Edward IV. Their daughter, Elizabeth of York, was Henry VIII's mother.

Why did Henry VII bury his mother-in-law, Elizabeth Woodville, quietly upon her death in 1492? For the same reason she was retired to a convent during the earlier Lambert Simnel crises - she was a reminder of the past glories of the house of York.

"We missed you, son."  My mother said in her most solemn voice.  She never was one to show much emotion.   I noticed my little sisters clinging to her dress, but smiling up at me.  I knew that they could show emotion.   And, I knew that Elizabeth and I would stay up the whole night talking about what had happened since the last time we were together.  What had happened since I had left.  And, I knew she would ask me why I did it.  A.L.M.
