Is Annette Bening descended from Edward IV’s daughter Cecily/Cicely….?
Has anyone else heard that the film actress Annette Bening is descended from Edward IV’s daughter, Cecily/Cicely? That is, according to the Wikipedia entry for Elizabeth Woodville, which cites “Cecily Plantagenet – Family tree Tim Dowling Geneanet” Geneanet.org.
It seems Annette Bening played Elizabeth Woodville in the 1995 film of Richard III. (3rd from right in picture)
Yes, I know it’s Wikipedia and has to be approached with caution, but I’d be interested to know if it’s true, or how it came about. Does anyone know?
