It's a fight for the throne in The Tudors-esque British historical drama
The White Queen takes on England's 'War of the Roses', with playing the lead Elizabeth Woodville, a Lancastrian commoner. Elizabeth then falls for Edward VI (Max Irons), the heir of the House of York, who is feuding with the House of Lancaster. When he is crowned King, they marry and this sparks a high-stakes battle for the crown between Elizabeth, Lancastrian Margaret Beaufort (Amanda Hale) and Anne Neville (Faye Marsay).
Showing originally on BBC One in the UK, The White Queen is set to show on cable channel Starz in the U.S.
