The Women of the Cousins’ War is a three-part biography of three remarkable women who lived during England’s Civil War of the Roses — or the Cousins’ War, as it is sometimes called. Bestselling historical novelist Philippa Gregory and two historians, leading experts in their field who helped Philippa to research her novels, re-create the extraordinary lives and times of Jacquetta, Duchess of Bedford; Elizabeth Woodville, queen of England; and Margaret Beaufort, the matriarch of the House of Tudor. This book formed the basis of a two-part BBC documentary series, The Real White Queen and Her Rivals, recently screened on SBS television.

In her introduction, Gregory writes revealingly about the differences among history, fiction and historical fiction. By turning her attention to three women, whose remarkable lives have gone largely unexamined by scholars, Gregory restores them to the historical record and raises important questions about the responsibility of the historian and the significance of women in medieval English society.
