    Margaret of Anjou (French: Marguerite d'Anjou) (23 March 1430 – 25 August 1482) was the wife of King Henry VI of England. As such, she was Queen consort of England from 1445 to 1461 and again from 1470 to 1471. She also claimed to be Queen consort of France from 1445 to 1453. Born in the Duchy of Lorraine, into the House of Valois-Anjou, Margaret was the second eldest daughter of René I of Naples and Isabella, Duchess of Lorraine.

Margaret of Anjou (c.1429-82) wed Henry VI of England at 15. After raising an army to defend herself from the vultures that were gathering now that Henry VI was deemed mentally incompetent, Margaret restyled herself a warrior-queen. She led several victories during the War of the Roses before she & her family escaped to Scotland. In 1462 she went to France to seek help from Louis XI-he gave her re-enforcements. Back in England, things went well until Margaret's only child was slain by Edward VI.
