Talk: Uncrowned Queen: The Fateful Life of Margaret Beaufort, Tudor Survivor


Chester: Saturday 26 October, 15.40–16.40

Talk synopsis: The life of Margaret Beaufort is one of staggering highs and heart-breaking lows. Forced to give up the son whose birth almost cost Margaret her life, through him she later became the most powerful woman in England. Margaret was not only a survivor, but she would also become an uncrowned queen.
