The long and eventful life of Margaret Tudor, daughter of Henry VII, younger sister to the heir Arthur, Henry, who became Henry VIII, and Mary. Aged 14 she is married to King James of Scotland who is eventually killed at Flodden and their 17-months child becomes James V of Scotland. Margaret marries Douglas, Earl of Angus, and seems to be forever pregnant. The long story progresses with great aplomb, splendid stuff and a member of the Tudor dynasty not frequently focused on. It is very good.


The Tudor Princess by Darcey Bonnette

Love, treachery and betrayal at court...The perfect read for fans of Philippa Gregory and Susannah Dunn. From her earliest days, Margaret Tudor knows she will not have the luxury of choosing a husband. As daughter of Henry VII, her duty is to gain alliances for England. Barely out of girlhood, Margaret is married by proxy to James IV and travels to Edinburgh to become Queen of Scotland. Despite her doubts, Margaret falls under the spell of her adopted home. But she has rivals. While Jamie is an affectionate husband, he is not a faithful one. And providing an heir cannot guarantee Margaret's safety when Jamie leads an invading army against her own brother, Henry VIII. In the wake of tragic loss she falls prey to the attentions of the ambitious Earl of Angus - a move that brings Scotland to the brink of anarchy. Beset by betrayal, secret alliances, and the vagaries of her own heart, Margaret has one overriding ambition - to preserve the crown of Scotland for her son, no matter what the cost. Exquisitely detailed and poignant, The Tudor Princess vividly depicts the life and loves of an extraordinary woman who helped shape the fate of two kingdoms - and in time, became the means of uniting them.


Praise for 'Secrets of the Tudor Court':

'Throbs with intensity as it lays bare the secret delights of Tudor court life. A tale of innocence and ruthless ambition locked in a love-hate embrace.
Barbara Kyle, author of 'The King's Daughter'

'A beautifully written story with wonderful attention to detail. I loved the book.'
Diane Haeger, author of 'The Queen's Mistake''
