The purpose of this biography is to rescue a minor Tudor character from the curious combination of fact and fiction that has previously enveloped her, and present instead a clear-cut picture of one whose historical position in the complicated diplomacy of the sixteenth century has never been properly assessed. Though more romantic that that of many, her life is not untypical of other princesses of her time, who played important, if small, parts in its history. Mary Tudor was the favorite sister of a dominant monarch, Henry VIII, and her family characteristics are apparent in everything she did. A colorful figure in a colorful age, Mary adds another chapter, however brief, to the Tudor record. - Preface.

"... Boisseau recontextualizes U.S. feminism in the cinematic 20th century. White Queen challenges the narratives we have told about ourselves and illuminates the imperialism and celebrity worship that lurks within American feminism yet today." -- Lee Quinby, Harter Chair, Hobart and William Smith Colleges May French-Sheldon's improbable public career began with an expedition throughout East Africa in 1891. She led a large entourage dressed in a long, flowing white dress and blonde wig, with a sword and pistol strapped to her side. As the "first woman explorer of Africa," she claimed to have inspired both awe and trust in the Africans she encountered, and as her celebrity grew, she reinvented herself as a messenger of civilization and "racial uplift." Tracey Jean Boisseau's insightful reading of the "White Queen" exposes the intertwined connections between popular notions of American feminism, American national identity, and the reorientation of Euro-American imperialism at the turn of the century.

Without a son and heir, he uses his daughters, Anne and Isabel, as pawns in his political games, and they grow up to be influential players in their own right. At the court of Edward IV and his beautiful queen, Elizabeth Woodville, Anne grows from a delightful child to become ever more fearful and desperate when her father makes war on his former friends. Married at age fourteen, she is soon left widowed and fatherless, her mother in sanctuary and her sister married to the enemy. Anne manages her own escape by marrying Richard, Duke of Gloucester, but her choice will set her on a collision course with the overwhelming power of the royal family.
