(& Their Relation to the River Goddess Melusine)
In 1464 King Edward IV, shocked the nation by announcing Elizabeth Woodville as his queen. The match brought his queen’s family into the thick of the War of the Roses.
Elizabeth Woodville was the daughter of Jacquetta, Duchess of Bedford, and a knight, Sir Richard Woodville.
The Luxembourg family claimed descent from the river Goddess Melusine through their ancestor Siegfried.
In 1469, Edward had a falling-out with Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick.
During this period of upheaval, a follower of Warwick produced some lead images that he claimed Jacquetta had made for the purposes of witchcraft and sorcery. Jacquetta refused to be cowed and wrote the mayor and aldermen of london, and got their assistance.
The king’s council cleared Jacquetta of the charges.
The accusations of witchcraft did not die, however, but were revived by Richard III in 1484, when his parliament declared that Jacquetta and her daughter had used witchcraft to procure her daughter’s marriage to the king.
The name Luxembourg became connected with Melusine, who had the same magic gifts as the ancestress of the Lusignans, and is the same type of water spirit as the "Lady of the Lake" in Arthurian Legend. ♥
