Summary
  • "From ... acclaimed historian Alison Weir comes the first biography of Lady Mary Douglas, the beautiful, cunning niece of Henry VIII of England, who used her sharp intelligence and covert power to influence the Tudor succession after the death of Elizabeth I."--
  • Lady Mary Douglas, the beautiful, cunning niece of Henry VIII of England, used her sharp intelligence and covert power to influence the Tudor succession after the death of Elizabeth I. From her auspicious birth in 1530 to her appointment as lady-in-waiting for four of Henry's six wives, Margaret's life was steeped in intrigue, drama and tragedy. Her life spanned five reigns and provides many missing links between the Tudor and Stuart dynasties. Weir brings this captivating character out of the shadows
Summary
A profile of the niece of Henry VIII reveals her lesser-known contributions to period politics, covering her two affairs, arrangement of her son's marriage to Mary Queen of Scots and role in securing the throne for James VI
