What do The Borgias, The Tudors, Rome, and Spartacus all have in common? They're all period pieces led by dudes. BBC One and Starz are offering to switch up the perspective on history with the historical drama, The White Queen, proving girl power existed in England years before the Spice Girls.
Set against the War of the Roses, the series, based on Philippa Gregory's novel series The Cousin's War, follows the conflict between three would-be queens—Elizabeth "The White Queen" Woodville, Lady Margaret Beaufort, and Anne Nevill—gunning for the throne of England.
