An old English ballad giving history of Cicely Neville, Duchess of York:
"A gracious lady!
What is her name, I thee praie tell me Dame Cecile,
sir. "Whose daughter was she?"
Of the Erle of Westmoreland, I trowe the yengist,
And yet grace fortuned her to be the highest."
According to the Richard III Society
( "Cicely, romantically known as
"the Rose of Raby" in reference to her beauty, was the youngest daughter
and twenty-second child of Ralph, Lord Neville of Raby, Earl of
Westmoreland, by his second wife, Joan Beaufort, daughter of John of
Gaunt. As far as can be ascertained, she was born at Raby in 1415, and
was raised with her future husband, Richard Duke of York, who became a
ward of her father in 1415. When Richard left the Earl's household to
assume the duties of his rank, he was betrothed to Cicely...In 1443-4 she
spent so much on apparel (L608, almost the annual income of an earl) that
York had to appoint a special officer to monitor her expenditures. After
1459, events were less happy. In October 1459, after the unremitting
enmity of Queen Margaret and her faction had forced York into open
resistance at Ludlow, the sudden desertion of the Calais garrison forced
York, Cicely's sons Edward and Edmund, her brother Salisbury, and her
nephew Warwick into precipitous flight. Cicely was left behind with the
younger children Margaret, George, and Richard, to face the King's army
and the sack of Ludlow. Kendall surmises that as a woman of courage she
stood at the Ludlow market cross and pleaded for the safety of her
people. The King's forces conveyed Cicely and her children to Coventry
where Parliament attainted her husband and relatives for treason...In the
summer of 1460 she traveled to London...joining York at Hereford "in a
chair (carriage) covered with blue velvet" and drawn by four shite
coursers...Cicely assumed the state and dignity of a reigning sovereign
before York died, and maintained it thereafter...Exemplified by Penman's
The Sunne in Splendor, Rhoda Edwards' The Broken Sword, and the
four-volume biographical series by Eleanor Fairburn, Cicely is a tower of
strength for her sons, raising them in the belief of the high destiny of
the House of York."

Cause of Death: killed by King Henry VII at Bosworth
According to the Encyclopaedia Britannic (, Battle of
Bosworth Field (August 22, 1485):
"...battle in the English Wars of the Roses, fough 12 miles (19km) west
of Leicester and 3 miles (5 km) south of Market Bosworth, between the
forces of the Yorkist King Richard III and the Lancastrian contender for
the crown, Henry Tudor (the future Henry VII). It was in effect the last
battle of the wars, and it established the Tudor dynasty on the English
throne. Henry, returning from exile, landed at Milford Haven (August 7)
and marched toward Richard at Leicester. Early on August 22 Richard's
army reached a superior position on Ambien Hill. Richard's ally, John
Howard, Duke of Norfolk, was killed in the initial skirmish. Though
called to the area by the king, Thomas, Lord Stanley (later 1st Earl of
Derby), and Henry Percy, Earl of Northumberland, failed to assist the
Yorkists in battle. When Richard moved against Henry Tudor, Sir William
Stanley, brother of Lord Stanley who had privately pledged support for
Henry, attacked Richard's flank. The Yorkist army melted away, while
Richard, preferring death, was unhorsed and killed in the bog."
His famous saying: "A horse! a horse! my kingdom for a horse!"
