Now exiled in France with his family Warwick plans to make his other daughter Anne a prospective queen of England by marrying her to Edward, teenage son of Henry VI and Margaret of Anjou in return for Margaret backing another war against Edward IV. Margaret however refuses immediate military help and both Isabel and George are unimpressed by the deal, George sending his brother a message to say he will have no part in any rising. Nonetheless Warwick goes ahead, routing Edward and forcing Elizabeth and her children to seek sanctuary in Westminster Abbey. Jacquetta is put on trial for witchcraft - in the light of Isabel's miscarriage - but acquits herself by threatening Warwick with her great friendship with Margaret of Anjou. Henry Tudor is taken into Yorkist custody, incensing his mother, but escapes whilst Elizabeth gives birth to a son by Edward. Written by don @ minifie-1
