I haven't read it cover-to-cover, but Patricia Buchanan's "Margaret Tudor, Queen of Scots" (1985) has been a good reference for me. I wish it had chapter notes though.There is also an older book from the 1950s by Michael Glenne called "King Harry's Sister" - I have it but I haven't read it so I can't tell you anything about its accuracy. And there is another dual bio with Mary (like Maria Perry's) by Nancy Lenz Harvey called "The Rose and the Thorn" (1975).Considering it's been 30 years since a bio of just Margaret, it might be time for another! (Preferably one with source notes)
There's also "The Sisters of Henry VIII" by Hester Chapman which covers both Margaret and Mary.Again, this is 30 years old and the material is probably out of date but Chapman is always readable.
Oh yeah, I forgot that one! My copy is titled "The Thistle and the Rose" and subtitled "The Sisters of Henry VIII".
Great, thanks very muchI'll try and hunt down a copy of one of them
