    Father: Sir Richard Wydeville Earl of Rivers b: ABT. 1405
    Mother: Jacquetta de Luxemburg Dame de St. Pol b: ABT. 1416

    Marriage 1 Sir John Grey of Groby Baron Ferrers of Groby b: ABT. 1432 Children
    1. Has Children Sir Thomas Grey Mar de Dorset b: BET. 1451 - 1455
    2. Has No Children Sir Richard Grey b: ABT. 1456

    Marriage 2 Edward IV Plantagenet of York King of England b: 28 APR 1442 in Rouen, France
    • Married: 1 MAY 1464 in Grafton Regis, Northamptonshire 14 3 15 7
    • Note: Edward earned the enmity of Yorkist Richard Neville the "Kingmaker" & Earl of Warwick by marrying Elizabeth the widow of a Lancastrian knight. While Warwick was negotiating for a marriage with a French princess (more suitable in genealogical terms), Edward married Elizabeth, & so Warwick rebelled against Edward. No doubt he believed that if he had "made" this king, he could also unmake him. She was a highly unusual match for a medieval King of England. Before his coronation, fine, but Edward married her when he was already King, and the first king of a new line, who could very well do with making some foreign alliances.
