Oɴ ᴛʜɪs ᴅᴀʏ ɪɴ ʜɪsᴛᴏʀʏ,the 11th of February 1466 & 1503, Elizabeth of York is born at the Palace of Westminster and dies thirty seven years later at the Tower of London.
Elizabeth of York was the embodiment of motherhood, of piety and charity. Her beauty and grace is legendary, Polydore Vergil called her “intelligent above all others, and equally beautiful. She was a woman of such character that it would be hard to judge whether she displayed more of majesty and dignity in her life than wisdom and moderation.” So altruistic was she that her own finances suffered for it, freely giving tips and gifts to attendants and servants, gifts of money to the commons who brought her many small gifts of food, alms to the poor and donations to religious houses. She also looked after her sisters, spending much of her income supporting them and taking her sister Katherine’s children into her own care when her husband was arrested for treason. She never forgot her little brothers, towards the end of her life she gave a gift of cloth, “by the commandment of the Queen to a woman that was nurse to the prince, brother to the Queen’s Grace”.
