The White Queen Alphabet:

B [3/?] - B is for Beaufort

“My cause is Holy, my purpose Divine… God will take you on this Sabbath day and when He does, I will be reborn.”

A lot of people hate Margaret and to me she’s the best character in this series. I’ve always been one to root for the underdog and Margaret truly is one. She’s suffered through so much and wanted only to dedicate her life to her god, and when she couldn’t have that she accepted her circumstances with humility. When she wanted her son on the throne she only believed she was doing “God’s will”. Whenever I think of her I think of Margaret of Anjou saying, “If you want something enough, you can get it. Always.” Margaret has persevered through her circumstances and triumphs in the end. Since youth she was nothing more than a pawn on the chessboard. She waited and waited for years until it was time for her to make her own move. She’s a bad bitch and she deserves to be happy. And she’s always so sly and sassy! She truly is a queen in her own right.
