Anthony Woodville, 2nd Earl Rivers Template:Postnominals (c. 1440Template:Snd25 June 1483), was an English nobleman, courtier, bibliophile and writer. He was the brother of Queen Elizabeth Woodville who married King Edward IV. He was one of the leading members of the Woodville family, which came to prominence during the reign of King Edward IV. After Edward's death, he was arrested and then executed by Richard, Duke of Gloucester (the future King Richard III) as part of a power-struggle between Richard and the Woodvilles. His English translation of The Dictes and Sayings of the Philosophers is one of the first books printed in England.
