The newest drama on STARZ®, The White Princess, takes place in the aftermath of England’s bloodiest battle, the War of the Roses. While it is a view into the world of King Henry VII, the true focus of the story is his bride, Elizabeth of York.
Elizabeth is forced to marry Henry to unite their feuding families, but viewers will quickly discover that their union is a rocky one at best. In addition to pacifying her new husband and maintaining loyalty to her blood relatives, Elizabeth must also find a way to outmaneuver her most powerful adversary, her mother-in-law.
Their marriage has ushered in an uneasy peace. And although Elizabeth and Henry are far from the ideal couple, the fate of England rests on their relationship.
