About the lecture:

The life of Margaret Beaufort is one of staggering highs and heartbreaking lows.

Margaret was forced to give up the son whose birth almost cost her her life, but later, through her son, she became the most powerful woman in England. Margaret was not only a survivor, but she would also become an Uncrowned Queen.
