This is Sudeley Castle, which can be found in Gloucestershire just outside Winchcombe.
The present castle was constructed in the 1400s and is believed to have been built on the site of another castle from the 1100s.
The castle also has a tithe barn and a chapel of St. Mary (both are pictured).
As a result of the war of the roses Sudeley castle would become the property of the Tudor crown who would gift it to Thomas Seymour during the reign of Edward VI. Seymour would marry Catherine Parr, the widow of Henry VIII and it is in the chapel in the ground where she is currently buried.
During the English Civil War the then occupants of the castle declared themselves for Charles I. This would lead to the castle suffering severe bombardment by parliament forces, leaving scars still visible today. Interestingly it was from Sudeley castle that the King would thank Cornish Royalist forces for their loyalty.
In the mid-1800s the castle would change hands and major restorations would take place.
Sudeley castle is still a private residence, although it does occasionally open its doors to the public. It has an intriguing museum, beautiful grounds and a surprising array of wildlife too.

August 15, 1369 – Death of Philippa of Hainault, wife of King Edward III of England, at Windsor Castle, buried at Westminster Abbey
Philippa was a daughter of William I, Count of Hainaut, and Joan of Valois, Countess of Hainaut, granddaughter of Philip III of France. Her eldest sister Margaret married the German king Louis IV in 1324; and in 1345, she succeeded their brother William II, Count of Hainaut, upon his death in battle. She was Queen of England as the wife of King Edward III, whom she married on 24 January 1328, some months after his accession to the throne of England.
Philippa acted as regent in 1346, when her husband was away from his kingdom, and she often accompanied him on his expeditions to Scotland, France, and Flanders. Philippa won much popularity with the English people for her kindness and compassion, which were demonstrated in 1347 when she successfully persuaded King Edward to spare the lives of the Burghers of Calais. This popularity helped maintain peace in England throughout Edward's long reign. The eldest of her thirteen children was Edward, the Black Prince, who became a renowned military leader. Philippa died at the age of fifty-five from an illness closely related to edema. The Queen's College, Oxford was founded in her honour.
Philippa and Edward had thirteen children, including five sons who lived into adulthood and the rivalry of whose numerous descendants would, in the fifteenth century, bring about the long-running and bloody dynastic wars known as the Wars of the Roses. #englishmonarchy#englishroyalty#englishroyals#philippaofhainault#waroftheroses#edwardiii#royals#royalty#royaleurope#royalconsort#medievalroyalty#edwardtheblackprince
“When the days of February were gone, the Lady Elizabeth, being desirous to be married and growing impatient, wrote a letter to John Howard, the Duke of Norfolk, because she knew the King her father much loved him, and that he was very loving to King Edward’s children. She prayed him to be a mediator for her in her cause of the marriage to the King as, she wrote, was her only joy and maker in this world, and that she was his in heart and in thought, in body and in all. And that she feared the Queen would never die. This young lady was inexpert in worldly affairs”.
Today on Mothers of Kings Week, we have Cecily Neville, Duchess of York and mother of Edward IV and Richard III.
Cecily was born in 1415, marrying Richard, Duke of York in 1429. They knew each other well, as the orphaned York had been a family ward since Cecily was a toddler. Their first kid, Anne, was born in 1439. Then came the short-lived Henry, followed by Edward.
But! Some say Eddy was really a hot Rouen archer's son. Why? Because if Eddy was full-term, that meant he'd have been conceived when York was fighting stuff a few days' away. So either he was a premie or a bastard. Why else would the kid have a low-key baptism when the next boy's was fancy? QED.
The Yorks could and likely did travel to each other to 'talk'. And the baptism is proof of jack. They buried a son not long ago and if Eddie WAS a premie, his chances were iffy. Also, if York thought the kid was not his son, why would he want everyone to think he's a cuckold?
Regardless, they had seven surviving kids. Then DRAMA.
York and his faction bickered with Queen Margaret and HER faction, aggravated by Henry VI's madness and York's stronger claim to the throne. Cecily tried to mediate, but York eventually declared his kingship. She and her tiny ones were captured, York and son Edmund were killed, Eddy won the crown. Yay! He married Elizabeth Woodville. Boo!
Cecily was pissed, but reconciled herself to it. Her nephew, the Kingmaker, didn't. He rebelled, and so did George, who used the archer story to say that HE should be king. Ed and Rick fled, Henry VI was king again, Cecily told George to stop being a dick, other sons came back and kicked ass, Henry VI 'died of a broken heart'. In the following years, George died (of being a dick), Eddy died (of parties), Rick died (of 'metal poisoning'.) Then granddaughter Elizabeth became queen, tra la.What were Cecily's thoughts on these decades of drama? We've no fucking idea.
Cecily died in 1495.
Currently sinking my teeth into this literary feast! I must say too; that Margaret of Anjou is becoming quite the unlikely and likeable heroine in part; quite contrary to the propagated persona of the ‘she-wolf’ image heavily promoted in other books, *ahem Ms Gregory. “Mine heart is set, and all mine whole intent,
To serve this flower in my most humble wyse,
As faithfully as can be thought or meant,
Without feigning or sloth in my servyse;
For know thee well, it is a paradyse
To see this flower when it begyn to sprede,
With colours fresh ennewyd, white and red.”
- William de la Pole (written about Margaret of Anjou)
This is the story before ‘the White Queen,’ and it may just change your perspective on a few things. Definitely worth a read if you get the chance!
