Description
Heiress to the red rose of Lancaster, Margaret Beaufort never surrenders her belief that her house is the true ruler of England and that she has a great destiny before her. Her ambitions are disappointed when her sainted cousin Henry VI fails to recognize her as a kindred spirit, and she is even more dismayed when he sinks into madness. Her mother mocks her plans, revealing that Margaret will always be burdened with the reputation of her father, one of the most famously incompetent English commanders in France. Married to a man twice her age, quickly widowed, and a mother at only fourteen, Margaret is determined to turn her lonely life into a triumph. She sets her heart on putting her son on the throne of England regardless of the cost to herself, to England, and even to the little boy. Disregarding rival heirs and the overwhelming power of the York dynasty, she names him Henry, like the king; sends him into exile; and pledges him in marriage to her enemy Elizabeth of York's daughter.

Believing that her piety and lineage has destined her for greatness beyond her ordinary looks and expedient marriage, Margaret Beaufort is determined to see her son Henry on the throne of England-regardless of the cost. And after constant battles kill any other claimants, the little boy is the last Lancaster male to bear a claim to the throne. Sending her son out of the country to keep him safe and betrothing him to her enemy Queen Elizabeth Woodville's daughter, Margaret feigns loyalty to King Richard III and marries one of his faithful supporters-all while laying secret plans for the battle between the houses of York and Lancaster that will see her son the King of England. When King Richard's only son dies, Margaret launches her plan with a deadly command that strikes to the heart of the White Queen. Henry Tudor invades from France and with the support of Margaret's husband, defeats the King's army, gaining the throne and sealing his marriage to the White Rose princess. The ultimate triumph belongs to Lady Margaret; she has founded the greatest dynasty that England will ever know: the Tudors., Tudor, House of, Tudor, House of., Unabridged., Wars of the Roses (Great Britain : 1455-1485), Women, YDXCPengYDXCPrdaYW6ZS3BDXMM3RASMUOCLCFOCLCOOC LCQTXUPPOCLB@NOCLCOOCLTnLvILS, York, House of, York, House of., [Solon, Ohio] :Playaway Digital Audio ;Prince Frederick, MD :[Distributed exclusively by] Recorded Books, LLC :[Manufactured by] Findaway World, LLC,[2010], p2010., [United States] :Simon And Schuster Audio,p2010., [United States]:Simon & Schuster Audio,2010., computerc, data file, digital, e-uk---, e-uk---e-uk-en, eAudiobook hoopla, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/sas_9781442304406_180.jpeg, online resourcecr, playaway, spoken wordspw, texttxt, unmediatedn, volumenc, ©2010
