Character description

Margaret of Anjou (1430–1482), a major figure in the English Wars of the Roses, served as the leader of the Lancastrian side for more than 15 years. She married King Henry VI at age 15 and as queen soon filled the void of power left by her husband's mental instability and indifference to royal responsibilities. She raised armies and helped restore her husband (briefly) to the throne after the Yorkist party deposed him. The couple had one son, Edward, Prince of Wales, who was killed in the war in 1471. Margaret was heaped with abuse by her contemporaries for so far overstepping the role of 15th-century women.
