About meI was born May 3, 1446 in Fotheringhay Castle, Northamptonshire, England, the sixth of fourteen children. I am the daughter of Cicely Neville and Richard Plantagenet, 3rd Duke of York. I have two brothers who became Kings of England: Edward IV of England and Richard III. In July, 1468, I wed Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy, as his third wife.
About my libraryMy husband's late father, Duke Phillip the Good of Burgundy, had formed one of the great libraries of Europe, with over 1,000 volumes. My own library is only a few dozen volumes, but many are among the most beautiful volumes known, from some of the best Flemish Burgundian artists.
