**************************************************************************************

When King Henry VII negotiates peace with Scotland, his daughter's hand in marriage to James IV is the ultimate prize.

A true princess, Margaret Tudor leaves her beloved England and accepts her fate unquestioningly. But to her surprise she falls madly in love with the fearsome Scottish King and, as Queen of Scotland, she is initially happy.

But neither the marriage nor the peace are to last. When James IV is defeated in battle by Margaret's own brother, the widowed Queen is torn between fleeing to her home and staying to protect her son's future as the new King of Scots.

It seems that once again Margaret's destiny is not to be her own...

The Tudor saga continues in Mary, Queen of France.
