Edward IV marries Elizabeth Woodville, widow of Sir John Grey of Groby, in a secret ceremony. The marriage probably took place near Elizabeth’s home at Grafton Regis, and the only people in attendance were a priest, Elizabeth’s mother Jacquetta of Luxembourg, and two ladies maids. Elizabeth was crowned Queen of England on 26 May 1465.
