Comments with opposing viewpoints are allowed if they are not written in an unnecessarily confrontational or arrogant manner. Not that I can offer you any pics, as this lady lived in an age where the committing of faces to oil and canvas was rarely done - and if it was, the depicted faces were usually male and royal. Mind you, Margaret was royal - in the sense that she was the granddaughter of Edward I. But seeing as her mother was a commoner, I'm thinking Margaret's claim to royalty would have been considered somewhat weak by her contemporaries.
As described in a previous post, Thomas is mostly remembered as being an unexceptional sort of man, and in many ways this is because his life is so eclipsed by that of his daughter.
English Historical Fiction Authors: A Notorious Divorcee and her Abiding Legacy
Truth be told, Thomas' life was pretty much eclipsed by most of his contemporaries - which in itself does not mean he was unexceptional, but there you are. Margaret was named for her grandmother, a lady who must have been quite something else.
Married to Edward I, a man well over 40 years her senior - and a man who by all accounts remained very devoted to his first wife, even after her death - she managed to create a happy home for her new husband and give him three children to brighten his old age. Edward I died while the children of his second marriage were still very small, and Thomas grew to manhood in an England very much defined by the constant conflict between Edward II and his disgruntled barons.
Without going into too much detail here about Edward II and the invasion that led to him losing his crown, let us say that Margaret's childhood saw just as exciting times. Her cousin, Edward III, was crowned in - a boy under the control of his mother and her lover, Lord Mortimer - and her father was probably a tad disgruntled at how high Mortimer was rising.
Medieval marriage Margaret knew none of this. By the time she was old enough to understand, Mortimer was dead - as was her mother. Some years later, in , Thomas Brotherton died as well, leaving his two daughters as his heiresses his son had predeceased him. A divorce.
Margaret was at the time around thirty, and she argued for a divorce based on the fact that she'd been too young to consent to the marriage when she was originally married. Seeing as that was fifteen years ago, and seeing as there'd been quite a few children, one can't help but wonder why she chose this moment in time to demand her marital freedom. Was there perhaps a sniff of illicit love in the air? A divorce? It's me. So was the king, who forbade her from leaving England to plead her case directly with the Pope in Avignon.

Terry Mackenroth bled maroon and without him Queensland's unprecedented recent success may never have taken the State of Origin arena by storm. Queensland had just lost the series with the loss in Origin III was universally regarded as the blackest day in the state's rugby league history.
Would you support it? Mackenroth cut through red tape and went quickly to work. Bennett soon had the green light to go to work on the program as director of coaching and create the emerging Origin program that we see today. Bennett had successfully returned to coach the Maroons post-Super League in after a decade's absence from Origin coaching.
