Margaret Tudor(1489-1541), Queen of Scotland
Sitter associated with 8 portraits
Margaret Tudor was the elder of the two surviving daughters of King Henry VII and Elizabeth of York. She was the elder sister of Henry VIII. In 1503 she married James IV, King of Scots, thus becoming the mother of James V and grandmother of Mary, Queen of Scots. Importantly, Margaret's marriage to James led directly to the Union of the Crowns. Margaret was married three times, and her history in this regard might be said to parallel that of her granddaughter, Mary Stuart, with its liberal mixture of tragedy, intrigue, duplicity and simple farce.
