Hello! Do you have any information on Lady Salsbury? She was the last Tudor to bebeheaded by King Henry VIII. It seems that not only was she the last Tudor but she was in her eighties when she died. This mysterious person seems to have disappeared from Plantaganant history and I would like to know why. With warmest regards, Bradford Roberts

See http://www.theanneboleynfiles.com/5592/the-execution-of-margaret-pole-countess-of-salisbury/ for an article on her. The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography also has a wonderful article on her. She was actually 67 when she died, not in her 80s as described by Chapuys, but 67 was elderly in Tudor times and she was frail.

    Margaret Pole, Countess of Salisbury was not a Tudor. She was “…the last Plantageanet Princess…”, as the daughter of George, Duke of Clarence, who Shakespeare has dying by drowning in a barrel of malmsey wine. Lady Margaret would have been a first cousin to Henry VIII’s mother, Elizabeth of York. She was also the governess to Princess Mary, Henry VIII’s and Katherine of Aragon’s daughter. She was also the mother of Reginald Cardinal Pole, the last Catholic Archbishop of Canterbury. He reigned as primate of England during Mary I’s reign as queen. They would have been second cousins, once removed.
