3.5/5Margaret Douglas, niece to Henry VIII by his sister Margaret Tudor, Dowager Queen of Scotland, came into the world under rather extraordinary circumstances, when her royal mother of renowned Tudor lineage, heavy in the last stages of pregnancy and in fear of her life, fled from Scotland and her enemies to seek protection under her formidable brother on English soil. In the sixteenth century, England and Scotland had hardly a neighborly, peaceful relationship, the two shared long established [...]

Disclaimer: ARC via Netgalley. Ah the Tudors – a Showtime series made you hot all over again. Not that you ever lost the hotness, you understand. And to be fair to Weir, she was writing about the Tudors long before Showtime got its idea, so she wins. There are problems with books like this one. There are reasons why full length studies of Margaret Douglas (or Lennox) and Elizabeth of York are not often done. There really isn’t quite much information in terms the ladies themselves. This is mo [...]

Lady Margaret Douglas, daughter of Margaret Tudor (one-time Queen of Scotland) is a woman whom often pops up in Tudor and Stuart history (especially as her son married Mary, Queen of Scots). Douglas was always omnipresent even if sort of lurking in shadows. Despite this appearance, she has yet to be discussed on her own merit. Alison Weir pens the first full-biography of this formidable lady in, “The Last Tudor Princess: The Life of Lady Margaret Douglas”. “The Last Tudor Princess” notic [...]

This is a thorough detailing of the life of Lady Margaret Douglas. She was Henry VIII's niece, the daughter of his sister, who was Queen in Scotland.She lived, for her time, a long life. It was wrought with complicated association to the royals of England, Scotland and other relatives in power hierarchies. This put her into a crack of nearly constant diplomacy/manipulation/power association for survival. She succeeded in surviving and at times thriving. But overall, her life was extremely sad. A [...]

This extensive and exhaustive biography of Lady Margaret Douglas covers all documented instances of her and tells about the general goings on around her during her lifetime. She is the daughter of Margaret Tudor (and her second husband), niece of King Henry VIII, and granddaughter of King Henry VII. She had lots of royal ties to both England & Scotland and the current British Royal family are descended through her. Included are lots of letters written by and to Margaret, which are interestin [...]

Why do I keep giving Weir chance after chance. Yet another 500 plus pages of history lessons replacing much lacking fact. Another case of quantity over quality.Margaret Douglas, Countess of Lennox, mother of Darnley and mother-in-law of Mary Queen of Scots - yes, a lost Tudor princess; yes, a woman whose life deserves the spotlight; yes, another case where fact is more interesting than fiction. A woman whose life reveals to us very little - and yet - 500 plus pages!I have said this over and over [...]

This has to be the most mundane biography of any Tudor lady I have yet read. She must have done loads of vicarious living because the majority of the events that happened in her life actually happened to other people. She was a passive participant. Full of quotations from letters and journals, which turned my audio narrator into a cartoon character. I found myself mimicking her to others to their great joy. I'm only about halfway through, so my opinion may changeNope, didn't change I rejoiced wh [...]

A full scale bio of Lady Margaret Douglas, Countess of Lennox has been long overdue. Alison Weir has now filled in this gap. The book is well researched with long footnoted passages. It is readable, but not a page turner. The narrative of Margaret’s parents, her youthful romance and her eventual love match with Henry Stewart (the 4th Earl of Lennox) necessarily covers the politics of royal succession in England and Scotland. The detailed sequence of events leading up to the marriage of Mary Qu [...]

First and foremost, a large thank you to NetGalley, Alison Weir, and Ballantine Books for providing me with a copy of this book, which allows me to provide you with this review.In a style that she has made popular, Weir chooses a lesser known member of the the English monarchy (more times than not, a Tudor, as is the case again here) and gives a thorough account that leaves amateur enthusiasts astounded and begging for more. Answering that key question, 'Who was Margaret Douglas?', Weir offers t [...]

interesting and detailed historical book about the life of a tudor princess who was in both the spheres of the scottish and english courts and survived where alot didnt but her ultimate aim came at a high price

Well-presented details of the life of a key member of the Tudor-Stuart dynasties: grand-daughter of Henry VII, first cousin of Elizabeth, and grandmother of James I. Unfortunately for her, she seemed to have a knack for getting involved in situations that ended up angering Henry VIII and Elizabeth (she and Mary Tudor, being co-religionists, were close friends). Audio narration is well done. However, I found nnoying the constant shift between the narrator's text voice "However, she later said " a [...]

Review:Wow. What a long book. Almost 600 pages. A cast of characters that's almost 20 pages long in itself. About 100 pages of notes to the text alone. This is a mad book, one that spans from Henry VII's time all the way to the tail end of Elizabeth I's.And, the only thing I can think of is: Why wasn't she in Showtime's The Tudors?Seriously, that was all that went through my mind the whole time I was reading the book. Let's assume that the creators actually did the stuff correctly, all right? In [...]

Well, if Margaret Douglas ever was lost, Alison Weir has certainly found her in this incredibly thorough revival of sorts. As a historical figure, the lost Tudor princess was certainly a significant character, a direct royal bloodline to the throne that never got to sit on it, an unusual example of a genuinely happy marriage at the time when marriages were nothing but contracts and breeding projects, relative and friend to the most important figures of her time and a grandmother to James VI (of [...]

I had somewhat lost interest in Weir's writing a few years back, but found myself pleasantly surprised by this new biography of Margaret Douglas.a cousin to the Tudors who was remarkably powerful and a big player in the succession of both the English and Scottish thrones. Her name is frequently glossed over in favor of "larger" figures of the time such as Queen Mary I and her successor the first Elizabeth, but during Henry VIII's reign Margaret (his niece) was largely considered a possible succe [...]

Weir continues to mine the Plantagenet tree, this time for the biography of Margaret Douglas, daughter of Henry VIII's sister Margaret. Douglas' presence at court during the divorce and remarriages should be more informative than it is, but the only real value-added here is the analysis of the Devonshire manuscript for the courtly, romantic thinking of the circle of young people Douglas belonged to in the 1520s. Weir also resolutely ignores the new research on Anne of Cleves and Katherine Parr t [...]

Don't read this book if you want slick, easy, pre-packaged history. There is plenty of romantic fiction out there, if you want that. This book is a serious look at a serious player in the Tudor game. Alison Weir goes to the primary sources; letters, ambassadors' reports, council memoranda, journals and contemporary chronicles. She digs out great big boulders of information and forms her theories about her subject. It is worth your time to follow her labors because she has written a comprehensive [...]

Margaret Douglas, descendant of Scottish kings and queens, niece of Henry VIII and cousin of Elizabeth I, mother in law of Mary, Queen of Scots, grandmother of James VI/I, is a woman little known in and of herself, a fact that Alison Weir attempts to remedy with this biography. Margaret was also a woman who tended to stir up a variety of emotions within the British Isles because of her place in the web of relationships and possible line of succession to the English throne.Before reading this boo [...]

An exhaustive re-telling of the life of Margaret Douglas: daughter of Margaret Tudor, niece of Henry VIII, mother of Darnley, mother-in-law to Mary Queen of Scots - so not really 'lost' at all as the title proclaims. It's good to have a focus on this formidable Tudor woman but Weir doesn't really get under her skin at all so that this becomes a political biography rather than a personal one. And if you're familiar with the intricacies of this period especially the machinations around royal succe [...]

This nonfiction book covers the life of Lady Margaret Douglas, Countess of Lennox. Not someone that one usually reads about when reading about the Tudor period so almost all of the information was new to me. However, having read Weir before, I was prepared for the fully detailed way in which the subject was covered. Weir presents the information in a way that it flows like I'm reading a novel. Not only did I enjoy meeting Margaret, but I also felt like I good sense of the most powerful families [...]

I just picked up this book today. Flicking through it have noted that there are 2 sections with illustrations, however, exactly same illustrations in both sections! Has anyone else noted this? Is it a fault with my copy or all copies?? Oh well back to bookstore next week to change

For the love of god don't listen to the audiobook version of this. The constant attempts to imitate the accents of every person who wrote any original source quoted in the book gets really tiring, really fast, and the dramatic reading of the alleged dying words of Matthew Lennox was just unnecessary.

Packed with an incredible amount of detail. If this time period is not something that really interests you, it might seem tedious, as there are many lengthy descriptions of costume, packing lists, as well as voluminous correspondence. If it's something you enjoy, however, it's nice to hear the subjects speak in their own words.

Please don't look at the time it took me to finish this book to judge it. It was awesome as always from Weir. But I was in the middle of house-hunting when I started it and ended up putting in an offer on a house shortly after. And that house required a lot of work, so between moving and renovating and unpacking and planning a wedding, as well, there wasn't much time to read!

Some parts really dragged, could do with fewer excerpts from letters

Weird reading Scottish history from English perspective. There have to be a lot of guesses.

Meticulous research; incredible book.

After reading this, I would think that the English must have been very glad that Margaret Douglas and her immediate family never achieved the throne. Her grandson did, James VI of Scotland and I of England. The Stuart family cannot be considered the most successful families to have taken the English throne. James luckily did not have much contact with his family. Margaret Douglas never met her grandson, James, for example. While she seemed like a decent enough person, her politics were often unf [...]

Royal Tudor blood ran in her veins.Margaret Tudor was the granddaughter, daughter, cousin, niece, sister, aunt, and grandmother to monarchs of both Scotland and England, but little is known about her life beyond the few snippets that occur here and there in the lives of the more famous Tudor family members. The daughter of Margaret Tudor, the former Scottish queen and sister to Henry VIII, Margaret Douglas would be involved in many of the most infamous plots and intrigues regarding the English t [...]
