Family tree of Elizabeth Woodville and Edward IV. Their daughter, Elizabeth of York, was Henry VIII's mother. Woodville was also mother to the famous "Princes in the Tower," both of whom are widely believed to have been murdered by their uncle, Richard III, so that they could never inherit the throne. Richard III was killed during the Battle of Bosworth in 1485 by Henry VII (Henry VIII's father), thus ending the Plantaganent dynasty and spawning the Tudor dynasty.
