Margaret of York, Duchess of Burgundy

Post  Susan Abernethy on Mon Feb 25, 2013 1:10 am

Margaret of York, sister to two kings of England, made one of the most brilliant marriages of her century. She married Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy. When she became a childless widow, she managed to settle into a comfortable, wealthy life and to have a principal role in Burgundian government for her husband’s heirs until her death at the age of fifty seven.

I've always loved Margaret of York. When it comes to the War of the Roses, I'm a Yorkist through and through and she threw everything she had into their cause. True, she used questionable means (a la Warbeck) at times but I can forgive her, in light of how nifty she was.

I believe her step-daughter became Duchess of Burgundy in her own right and would be an ancestress of Marie Antoinette. Making Richard III Antoinette's many-great step-uncle.

Which isn't worth mentioning but my well-documented Ricardianism requires me to. I'm sorry everyone.
