Margaret Tudor
Birth: Nov. 28, 1489
Death: Oct. 18, 1541

Scottish monarch, queen consort of James IV. Eldest daughter of Henry VII of England and Elizabeth of York. She married James on August 8, 1503 at Holyrood. He was 30, she was 14. The marriage was accompanied by a treaty of "perpetual peace" between England and Scotland. They had six children, only their son James survived childhood. The peace treaty ended when James IV invaded England in 1513, where he was killed at Flodden. Margaret became regent for the young James V. On August 6, 1514 she married Archibald Douglas, 6th Earl of Angus, which led to her losing the regency to John Stuart, Earl of Albany. She had one daughter, Margaret, by Douglas. John Stuart obtained custody of the young king, and Margaret fled home to England. She returned to Scotland in 1517, when Douglas abducted the king. Margaret obtained a divorce, and the king escaped Douglas' control and began to rule in his own right in 1527. Margaret then married Henry Stewart, 1st Lord Methven, on April 2, 1528. The couple served as the king's chief advisors for a time. Margaret had one daughter, Dorothea, by Stewart. She died of "palsy" at Methven Castle in Perth at the age of 52. It is because of Margaret that the thrones of England and Scotland would become one after the death of Elizabeth I. (bio by: Kristen Conrad)
