So High a Blood: The Life of Margaret, Countess of Lennox

By Morgan Ring

Bloomsbury, £14.99, 368 pages, hardback

BOOK OF THE MONTH

Religion, personal ambition and the relentless desire for an heir: three key forces of the Tudor period are here united in a biography of Margaret Douglas, half-sister of James V of Scotland. Fighting to seize power despite her uncle, Henry VIII, barring his Scottish relatives from the English throne, she used everything at her disposal to achieve her aims. As alliances shifted and Henry struggled to produce the male off spring he so longed for, Douglas emerges a complex, driven character. This is a fresh, very readable take on a period that continues to fascinate.

Margaret was buried in Westminster Abbey alongside Mary, Queen of Scots
