The Red Queen tells the story of the child-bride of Edmund Tudor, who, although widowed in her early teens, uses her determination of character and wily plotting to infiltrate the house of York under the guise of loyal friend and servant, undermine the support for Richard III and ultimately ensure that her only son, Henry Tudor, triumphs as King of England. Through collaboration with the dowager Queen Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret agrees a betrothal between Henry and Elizabeth's daughter, thereby uniting the families and resolving the Cousins War once and for all by founding of the Tudor dynasty.Hide synopsis

This was another excellent book by Phillipa Gregory, who has a special talent for putting words into the mouths and thoughts into the minds of figures from the Tudor period, yet anchoring the narrative in known historical fact when available.
The Red Queen shares a common theme as all the other Gregory fiction works based on history: The subjugation of women, whatever their status, in the Late Middle Ages to the Early Renaissance period.
