Margaret Skipwith, Mistress of Henry VIII

Although he had six wives, Henry VIII had few long-lasting extra-marital relationships, with no prominent mistresses in his later years. While single following the death of his third wife, Jane Seymour, he began to look around for a new mistress and, perhaps, another queen. Did his choice fall on Margaret Skipwith, a woman who would later become Bessie Blount's daughter-in-law? You can find out more in my guest post over at The Anne Boleyn Files.


You can also read more about Margaret Skipwith and her marriage to the short-lived George Tailboys in my book, Bessie Blount (Amberley, 2011).
