Margaret Tudor, Queen of Scotland by LadyAquanine73551 Margaret Tudor, Queen of Scotland by LadyAquanine73551
Henry VIII had 2 younger sisters, and Margaret was the older one. She lived between 1489-1541. Henry VII had her marry James IV, King of Scotland as part of a political alliance with England, though things were pretty shaky throughout Margaret's lifetime. Between being Regent of Scotland after the king died, fleeing Scotland & coming back, having wealth and no wealth, and a few succeeding marriages, I'd say her life was pretty dynamic. You can read more here: tudorhistory.org/people/margar…

She had 4 sons, & only 1 survived to adulthood. He would succeed his father as James V.

In regards to the doll, most of it was pretty easy, save for the headdress & that weird necklace she had strung across her chest. I originally set up both Margaret & Mary in a sisterly portrait on Doll-Divine, though I was horrified to discover that I was inaccurate about Margaret's age compared to her brother Henry's. I wrote that she was his older sister, rather than the 3rd child in the family :O_o:. I'm just glad that picture isn't on Doll-Divine anymore.

Hehe, I guess we all finally figured out where those weird monkeys (what the heck are those things?) came from in the accessories section, lol.

I made this using the Tudors Scene-Maker www.dolldivine.com/the-tudors-… on Doll Divine.

She must of been beautiful when she lived, or maybe delicate from the picture. I love this dress, it makes me think of Autumn and pumpkins

With Elizabeth Woodville (AKA the White Queen) as her mother, I'd say that her looking attractive was a pretty good guess, though painters in those days tried flattering their royal subjects as much as they tried being accurate.  She had a gorgeous little sister, & both Henry & Arthur were pretty handsome when they were young, so I'd say she was probably pleasing to look at. 
Thank you about the dress.

Lol, you've wondered too? I actually saw 1 image on Doll-Divine where somebody created the Tudor equivalent of "Lady Gaga" & basically COVERED the girl model in tons of "monkey-possums" as I affectionately call these things, :rofl:. I think it was in response to some insane Gaga outfit that involved stuffed animals.
