Who was Margaret Tudor? – Helen Castor on Woman’s Hour

Helen Castor discussed Margaret Tudor on Woman’s Hour BBC Radio 4 this morning.

‘It’s expected that the coming year will see the rules on male primogeniture overturned. Commonwealth leaders have agreed it, so it only remains for parliament to change the law and, if William and Kate’s firstborn is a girl, she will, one day, be queen. So how different might our list of kings and queens have been if the succession had passed to daughters. Louise Adamson met the historian Helen Castor who’s a Fellow of Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge to find out about Margaret Tudor’s life and legacy.’
