After Beaufort died in 1410 (in the Tower of London), she married his half-nephew Thomas Plantagenet, Duke of Clarence, the son of King Henry IV. They had no children. Margaret and both her husbands are buried together in a carved alabaster tomb in Canterbury Cathedral that shows her lying between the two of them.
