Hey,I might be wrong but I feel like with the White Princess soon to be released it's already creating division between Henry/Elizabeth fans and just fans of EOY in general.I feel like some of them are frustrated over the Henry/EOY fans hating on the way their relationship is depicted because of the evidence they give that they loved each other andso those who think that might not have bene the case think that the proof isn't enough and it could have been a Tudor propaganda or something
Okay so this has been in my drafts for easily a month, I am very sorry about that! I have been so inactive lately because I simply didn’t really have the time nor really the passion to blog anymore.
I think your message pretty much says it all! Some people are convinced Elizabeth was trapped in an unhappy marriage with a terrible spouse while others feel that evidence points out that they grew to love each other despite facing rather a lot of challenges as a couple.
I have not yet watched TWP but so far I do get the feeling it wants to break free from the ‘silent image’ most documentaries/shows on TWOTR or ‘the rise of the Tudor Era’ have assigned to Elizabeth of York. Which makes me happy to my very soul, honestly.
I am convinced pretty much all of EOY’s fans are rooting for an image that shows her as a much more intelligent, action-taking figure than we have seen from her before. It’s just a shame there has to be this division? But especially that some people feel like their opinion is the one that should be the norm? And anyone drifting from their view is horribly wrong and downright ignorant or something?
In the end we don’t know what really went down do we? We probably never will. I think we can all agree that Elizabeth of York’s life was ruthlessly complicated but five centuries later people still seem to agree that she was amazingly skilled at making others love her. That definitely counts for something if you ask me.
