    RED ROSE~ MARGARET OF ANJOU, the powerful, determined wife of the hapless Henry VI. She was the defacto leader of the House of Lancaster during the Wars of the Roses, fighting tooth and claw for the rights of her son, Edward. Her armies won some battles and lost others. When Edward was killed at the battle of Tewkesbury in 1471, Margaret no longer had anything to fight for. She later went back to France and died in obscurity. In her prime, a very formidable woman.
