Join us for the launch of author Nicola Tallis' new book Uncrowned Queen: The Fateful Life of Margaret Beaufort, Tudor Matriarch.

During the bloody and uncertain days of the Wars of the Roses, Margaret Beaufort was married to the half brother of the Lancastrian King Henry VI. A year later she endured a traumatic birth that brought her and her son close to death. She was just thirteen years old.

Join Nicola in the launch of her new book examining this interesting figure in more detail.
