Margaret Tudor was born 28th November 1489 at Westminster Palace and died 18th October 1541, she was reported to have died from Palsy. She was Queen of Scotland from 1503 until 1513 as she was the wife of King James IV of Scotland. She was the elder surviving daughter of King Henry VII of England & Elizabeth of York.
On this day she departed Richmond Palace to go back to Scotland and in July 1514, she had managed to reconcile the contending parties that decided they did not want her in the office of regent, along with Scotland and France. She concluded peace with England that same month also. But in her search for political allies amongst the fractious Scottish nobility she took a fatal step, allowing good sense and prudence to be overruled by emotion and magnetism.. Showing the thing the men at the time feared she would, a woman’s weakness!
With love, Charlotte x
