In the comments to the 23 January post Why the Tudors?, DorsetGirl said re: Cecily Neville, ‘a drama series with her as the protagonist would be epic, but I can imagine programme commissioners going, “Somebody’s mother?”’
Isabel Neville, Duchess of Clarence, who might have been queen if her husband’s plotting had succeeded, and her sister Anne, who might have been a Lancastrian queen but in the end was a Yorkist one. Were they as ambitious as their father the Kingmaker, or were they merely pawns?
Then there are the more shadowy characters - Eleanor Butler, Jane Shore, Margaret of Burgundy.
And finally Elizabeth of York, daughter of Edward IV and wife of Henry VII. Of all these women, possibly the one who had the least control over her life.
The fifteenth century isn’t my period, so I won’t be writing it. But it would be a good subject for someone.
