  • Notes 
    • Elizabeth Wydevill was also known as Elizabeth Woodville. From circa 1452 her married name became Grey. As a result of her marriage Elizabeth Wydevill was styled as Queen Consort Elizabeth of England on 26 May 1465.
      Her marriage to Edward IV Plantagenet King of England was annulled on 25 June 1483 by an Act of Parliament known as the 'Titulus Regius' because of King Edward's alleged precontract to Eleanor Butler. The marriage was ultimately recognised as valid in October 1485 by the first Act of Parliament of King Henry VII.
