Representations of Lady Margaret Beaufort, Countess of Richmond and Derby, Marcela Abadia
This article will focus on two representations of Lady Margaret Beaufort, King Henry VII’s mother. It will examine Bishop John Fisher’s Mornynge Remembraunce, delivered a few weeks after Lady Margaret’s death in 1509, which provides a representation from a close contemporary of hers. It will also look at Rowland Lockey’s portrait Lady Margaret Beaufort at prayer, painted c.1598. By assessing both the sermon and the portrait this article will look at different representations of Lady Margaret Beaufort.
