The Red Queen - Philippa Gregory Margaret Beaufort was probably my least favorite in all of Philippa Gregory's heroines. I normally love reading about the English monarchs, but I don't know if this queen is at all royal. I guess for what she accomplished as a women in her time was to say the least, incredible and for that reason alone she was never painted in a good light in any historical documents. Gregory does do a wonderful job in portraying Margaret as what she must have been a scheming person, only trying to further herself and her family and cutting those down that got in her way. She is a most significant figure since she is really the one who brought the Tudor name to fame. Not my favorite of Gregory's books, but it is a good historical perspective.
