    And, now I m back in my comfort zone The Tudors, and Margaret Beaufort is one of the most important members of that family, even though she was only one by marriage for a short space of her life She was absolutely interesting and amazing, the woman who certainly pioneered for her son throughout their whole lives It never fails to amaze me that she had Henry VII at 13, then from that time and on, she was basically a power mom who seems way older than that.The only downside to this is that ther And, now I m back in my comfort zone The Tudors, and Margaret Beaufort is one of the most important members of that family, even though she was only one by marriage for a short space of her life She was absolutely interesting and amazing, the woman who certainly pioneered for her son throughout their whole lives It never fails to...

    Margaret Beaufort Mother of the Tudor Dynasty reminds me a great deal of the non fiction history I just finished Jane Boleyn The Infamous Lady Rochford Both had as their subject an historical figure about whom only scraps of evidence survive to present day, and as a result have rather sparse material to work with As a direct consequence, specific biographic detail on their chosen individuals is somewhat scarce and meagre fare However, whilst Julia Fox padded out her work with vivid descrip Margaret Beaufort Mother of the Tudor Dynasty reminds me a great deal of the non fiction history I just finished Jane Boleyn The Infamous Lady Rochford Both had as their subject an historical figure about whom only scraps of evidence survive to...

    Find the enhanced version of this and other reviews at thing I appreciate most about this book is that Norton doesn t try to recreate Margaret s personality She hints here and there but it is always based on Margaret s own words or actions For example, Norton covers the intense feelings Margaret had regarding the early marriage of her granddaughter but she doesn t make assumptions about Margaret s emotions during her own early marriage to a man near Find the enhanced version of this and other reviews at thing I appreciate most about this book is that Norton doesn t try to recreate Margaret s personality She hints here and there but it is always based on Margaret s own words or actions For example, Norton covers the intense feelings Margaret had regarding...

    I listened to the audio version of this book Despite the somewhat monotonous tone of the narrator, which might be offputting for some, it is worth reading through Not least because it serves to challenge a lot of popular misconceptions that have grown up around Lady Margaret recently propogated by works of popular fiction like The White Queen TV series and the novels ...

    Already have a book on Margaret Beaufort and have her covered via books on other Tudors and find her a fascinating biography Norton did a good job of laying out the bare bones of Margaret s life using many primary sources and quoting from them extensively Wouldn t say there was a great deal of analysis but there really isn t the need Margaret managed to survive and formulate much of her life in an era when women had little power let alone rights She did become a huge influence not in any Already have a book on Margaret Beaufort and have her covered via books on other Tudors and find her a fascinating biography Norton did a good job of laying out the bare bones of Margaret s life using many primary sources and quoting from them extensively Wouldn t say there was a great deal of analysis but there really isn t the need Margaret managed to survive an...

    It was okay, a bit on the light side but for anyone with only the basic knowledge this would be a great bio to get to know Margaret Beaufort better.

    While this could have been simply yet another re telling of the War of the Roses, Norton really digs in deep to pull out every primary source she can get her hands on to try and shone a light on Margaret Beaufort, quite rightly given the title Mother of the Tudor Dynasty While I LOVED all the primary sources she quoted I think it wouldn t have hurt her historiography street cred to update the language to ...

    Fairly quick read about a woman intent on shaping her son s destiny Margaret was married off much too young, spoiled quickly by her husband, and took matters into her own hands at fifteen when arranging aadvantageous match The book painstakingly details all there is to know about her, which admittedly is not much her character is only fleetingly outlined by her contemporaries primarily by the adoring Bishop Fisher , so most of what we are left with are the plain facts of her risks, Fairly quick read about a woman intent on shaping her son s destiny Margaret was married off much too young, spoiled quickly by her husband, and took matters into her own hands at fifteen when arranging aadvantageous match The book painstakingly details all there is to...
