Margaret Tudor: Scotland's forgotten queen

Margaret Tudor, sister of Henry VIII and aunt of Elizabeth I, was the first Tudor woman to rule a kingdom and caused scandal with her divorce, but her legacy was the eventual union of England and Scotland.

In 1502 the kings of England and Scotland signed a Treaty of Perpetual Peace. A marriage treaty was signed on the same day.

James IV of Scotland would marry Margaret, the daughter of Henry VII, joining the ruling families of Scotland and England - the Stewarts and the Tudors.
