Uncovering Margaret of Anjou: A Queen More Sinn’d Against Than Sinning? ~ A guest post by Catherine Hokin

It is particularly apt to begin this exploration of the reputation associated with Margaret of Anjou (1430-1482) with a quote from Shakespeare. It is in his portrayals (in the Henry VI trilogy and in Richard III) where many people first encounter the woman who would become the wife of the Lancastrian King Henry VI of England and one of the key protagonists in the fifteenth century dynastic conflicts popularly known as the Wars of the Roses.  Read more here:  https://thefreelancehistorywriter.com/2016/05/20/uncovering-margaret-of-anjou-a-queen-more-sinnd-against-than-sinning-a-guest-post-by-catherine-hokin/

Thanks for posting this! Queen Margaret's father, Rene of Anjou, was a close associate of the French King.

Sometime this summer, the "Hollow Crown" Shakespearean series will return to "Great Performances" on PBS. The focus is the Wars of the Roses with "Henry VI" and "Richard III." The cast features a number of well-known British actors.
