As young women, Margot Tennant and her sister Laura were the central female figures of a loose-knit group of British intellectuals, politicians, and aristocrats known as "The Souls." In 1894, Margot married widower H.H. (Herbert Henry) Asquith, who became Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1908 to 1916. In the 1920s, they were made Earl and Countess of Oxford and Asquith. She was famous for her outspokenness and candor, and wrote several volumes of memoirs and autobiography. Her diaries covering the years 1914-16 were published in June 2014 as Margot Asquith's Great War Diaries.
