The riveting story of Margaret Pole, daughter of George, Duke of Clarence and was one of the few surviving members of the Plantagenet dynasty after the Wars of the Roses.

About the Author

Philippa Gregory was an established historian and writer when she discovered her interest in the Tudor period and wrote the Internationally bestselling novel The Other Boleyn Girl. Now she is looking at the family that preceded the Tudors - the magnificent Plantaganets, a family of complex rivalries, loves and hatreds. Her other great interest is the charity that she founded nearly twenty years ago - Gardens for the Gambia.

A former student of Sussex university and a PhD and Alumna of the Year 2009 of Edinburgh University, her love for history and commitment to historical accuracy are the hallmarks of her writing
