    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.
