The fateful life of Margaret Beaufort, Tudor Matriarch In 1485, Henry VII became the first Tudor king of England thanks to the efforts of his mother, Lady Margaret Beaufort. She had schemed to install him on the throne and to end the Wars of the Roses.

Nicola Tallis’s gripping account of Margaret’s life, one that saw the fi nal passing of the Middle Ages, is a true thriller, revealing an extraordinarily ambitious and devoted woman who risked everything to ultimately found the Tudor dynasty.

Her story is one of the most exciting of the period and formed the basis of Philippa Gregory’s bestselling novel The Red Queen. Nicola Tallis returns after a much enjoyed visit in 2018 with Elizabeth’s Rival. She is also the author of Crown of Blood.

“Nicola Tallis, one of our great popular historians” Alison Weir
