Lady Margaret Beaufort, Mother of a King

Post  Susan Abernethy on Sat Jan 11, 2014 2:46 am

Lady Margaret Beaufort was the matriarch of the Tudor dynasty of Kings in England.  Her life was greatly influenced by the turning of the Wheel of Fortune.  That she managed to survive the vagaries of the War of Roses in England is something at which to be marveled.

Fascinating! It's odd that in the slew of Tudor sludge in recent years, Margaret has still managed to fall by the wayside. Henry's six wives have each found a fanbase, Elizabeth of York gets a new biography and Margaret...Margaret got to be the psychotic villain in a BBC miniseries.

Yes Bunnies!! One of the major reasons I wrote this article is to set the record straight about Margaret. I didn't watch "The White Queen" but I heard Philippa Gregory had painted Margaret as the "real killer" of the Princes in the Tower. I was appalled. Margaret didn't have that kind of power. She was a very devout woman and wouldn't dream of killing young boys. Richard of Gloucester, on the other hand, may have been present at the murder if King Henry VI in the Tower. And most of what I've read so far says that most of those around Richard III believed he was responsible for the "disappearance" of the princes. Most likely Margaret believed this too and she saw the opportunity to put her son forth as an alternative for the throne. Thanks so much for reading. Hope you are well.
