As we make our way chronologically through the Tudor dynasty, Margaret Tudor is featured as our 11th illustration in Tudor Queens and Consorts. Margaret Tudor, Queen of Scots by her marriage to James IV of Scotland, was the daughter of King Henry VII and Elizabeth of York. This illustration is inspired by a miniature found in an illuminated prayer book dating from c. 1503.
Margaret Tudor’s marriage to James IV in 1503 linked the royal houses of England and Scotland. When her husband died in 1513, she became regent for their son James V. Her grandchildren include Mary, Queen of Scots and, through Margaret’s second husband, Lord Darnley (Mary’s second husband).
