Book Thoughts: Margaret Tudor, Queen of Scots (Sarah-Beth Watkins)

Watkins, Sarah-Beth - Margaret Tudor, Queen of Scots

★★★★★☆☆

Title: Margaret Tudor, Queen of Scots
Author: Sarah-Beth Watkins
Genre: Non-Fiction / History
First published: 8 December 2017 by Chronos Books
Edition: ARC e-book, courtesy of NetGalley and the publisher

I already knew a fair bit about Henry VIII, but I knew next to nothing about his older sister Margaret, who became Queen of Scots. This is a thoroughly researched, well-presented account of her life, which was surprisingly eventful and interesting.

I found the writing style informative, but fairly easy to read, apart from the original correspondence texts. Having said that, those fragments of letters were fascinating in their own way, seeing how people communicated in the past.

I would thoroughly recommend this biography to anyone interested in British history or ‘kings and queens’.

5 out of 7 stars
