The life of Margaret Douglas was full of scandal, intrigue and romance. Lady of honour to five of the wives of her uncle Henry VIII, some thought she should be queen. Beautiful and tempestuous, Northumberland-born Margaret Douglas created scandal – twice – by falling in love with unsuitable men. She was imprisoned in the
Tower of London three times; her husband and son were murdered; she warred with two queens and helped to orchestrate the Stuart succession.
Alison Weir is the biggest-selling female historian in the UK. Her acclaimed books include The Six Wives of Henry VIII, Children of England, Katherine Swynford, Innocent Traitor and The Lady Elizabeth.
