The Real Red Queen at Historical Honey

Who was the real Margaret Beaufort? Was she the religious zealot shown in some fictional portrayals? Was she obsessed with her son? Did she hate the Yorkists?

Recently,  Historical Honey published an article I wrote about the real historical figure behind Philippa Gregory’s Red Queen. Even if you aren’t a fan of Philippa Gregory, check it out. The article focuses mainly on Margaret Beaufort. Here’s the link: http://www.historicalhoney.com/margaret-beaufort-the-red-queen/.

Also, check out Historical Honey. It is a great magazine and has some fascinating articles.
