One of the most popular and authoritative historians writing today, Alison Weir provides a captivating account of the life and times of Margaret Douglas, Countess of Lennox in this eye-opening biography.
- RRP £20.00
- Save £16.01
The niece of Henry VIII, Douglas had royal Tudor blood running through her veins. Her mother was a queen, her father an earl and many thought she should have been queen of England. Lady of honour to five of Henry's wives, the countess was beautiful and tempestuous and created scandal by falling in love with unsuitable men on two occasions... Fortunately, her arranged marriage turned out to be a love match.
A brave survivor, her dynastic ties to two crowns proved hazardous. Imprisoned in the Tower of London on three separate occasions (once under sentence of death), she also helped bring about one of the most notorious royal marriages of the 16th century - but this, too, ended in tragedy.
Instrumental in securing the Stuart succession to the throne of England for her grandson, this biography covers an extraordinary life that spanned five Tudor reigns.
