Margaret Beaufort Haiku

“If I have to be

A teenage mother, son of

A bitch will be king.”

Margaret Beaufort was born 575 years ago today. She gave birth to her son, Henry Tudor (the future Henry VII) at age 13, which was NOT the usual thing in those days, because even then, they knew that the younger the mother, the higher the chance of bad shit happening. As it was, she had four husband and only one kid, and goddamnit, she was going to make a sure that kid was a SUCCESS.
