Isabel Neville (or Isabella) (5 September 1451 - 22 December 1476) was the elder daughter of Richard Neville, 16th Earl of Warwick, the Kingmaker of the Wars of the Roses, and Anne Neville, 16th Countess of Warwick. She was the wife of George Plantagenet, 1st Duke of Clarence. She was also the elder sister of Anne Neville, Princess of Wales by her first marriage and queen consort by her second.
Isabel Neville (or Isabella) (September 5, 1451-December 22, 1476) was the elder daughter of Richard Neville, 16th Earl of Warwick, the Kingmaker of the Wars of the Roses, and Anne Neville, 16th Countess of Warwick. She was the wife of George Plantagenet, 1st Duke of Clarence. She was also the elder sister of Anne Neville, Princess of Wales by her first marriage and Queen Consort by her second.
Isabel was born at Warwick Castle the seat of the Earls of Warwick. In 1469, her ambitious father engaged her to England's heir presumptive, George, Duke of Clarence, the brother of both Edward IV of England and Richard, Duke of Gloucester (later Richard III). The king was against the marriage as this would bring the already powerful Warwick too close to the throne. The ceremony took place in secret at Calais on 11 July 1469, conducted by Isabel's relation George Neville, Archbishop of York.
Following their marriage Clarence joined forces with Warwick and traitorously allied with the Lancastrians led by Margaret of Anjou, Queen Consort to Henry VI. After Isabella's sister Anne was married to Edward of Westminster, Prince of Wales, the son and heir of Henry VI, Clarence rejoined his brother, realising that it was now unlikely that he would become king.
Isabel's first child was either stillborn or died shortly after its birth at sea. In 1473, she gave birth to a daughter called Margaret and in 1475 to a son called Edward. Isabel died the next year either from consumption or childbed fever.
