Post on Margaret d'Anjou

I found this nice blog "Medieval Women" where Susan Higginbotham has posted two nice articles.

The first is on Margaret d'Anjou, queen of Henry IV. The article is titled "Margaret The She-Wolf?" She says, "Margaret is usually depicted in historical fiction as a vengeful and half-mad harpy, intent on destroying anyone who gets in her path..." concluding that "Just because such propaganda served a purpose in the fifteenth century, however, is no reason for us to blindly perpetuate it today."

There are also some other nice posts on Wars of the Roses related topics on this blog.
