Born Mother of the Tudor Kindle in the midst of the Wars Mother of PDF #180 of the Roses Margaret Beaufort. Very readable and informative Elizabeth Norton’s book is packed with fascinating snippets of information about Margaret Beaufort and the times she lived in I particularly liked the well chosen excerpts from letters and writers of the time Often portrayed as an austere domineering figure it was refreshing to see examples of Margaret Beaufort’s sense of humour and evidence that she did have a sensitive side It can’t have been easy for her to be betrothed at the age of six then married to Edmund Tudor at twelve finding herself pregnant almost immediately afterwards This was apparently considered a bit hasty of him even by the very different standards of the time so it is hard to have much sympathy when Edmund dies of the plague before he even sees his sonIt is important to remember that Margaret Beaufort could have been ueen – and perhaps paved the way for Elizabeth 1st who saw her as a role model It is also interesting to consider how much influence she had over her son Henry VII – and how different Tudor history could have been if she had been around a bit longer to restrain her grandson Henry VIIIInspired by Elizabeth's fascinating research I made the 'pilgrimage' to the room in Pembroke Castle where Margaret Beaufort gave birth to Henry VII and felt much closer to the real woman after reading this book I rarely give a book five stars but in this case I enjoyed it so much I will—and I know this is a book I will return to in the future Highly recommended
