Margaret Beaufort: Uncrowned Queen

Evening Lecture with Dr Nicola Tallis

During the bloody and uncertain days of the Wars of the Roses, Margaret Beaufort was married to the half-brother of the Lancastrian king Henry VI. A year later she endured a traumatic birth that brought her and her son close to death. She was just thirteen years old. As the battle for royal supremacy raged between the houses of Lancaster and York, Margaret, who was descended from Edward III and thus a critical threat, was forced to give up her son… Join Dr Nicola Tallis as she reveals the life of an extraordinarily ambitious and devoted woman who risked everything to ultimately found the Tudor dynasty.

Nicola’s book, Margaret Beaufort, Uncrowned Queen is the first comprehensive biography in three decades of Margaret Beaufort.
