She is credited with the establishment of two prominent Cambridge colleges, founding Christ's College in 1505 and beginning the development of St John's College, which was completed posthumously by her executors in 1511.. She is greatly considered to have played a major role in, if not lead, the conspiracy against Richard III in 1483. The conspiracy failed and Richard III sought to pass an act of attainder in Parliament against Margaret, calling her "mother to the king's (Richard) great rebel and traitor, Henry, earl of Richmond." She was spared by her husband’s good service to the king, her husband at this time being Thomas Lord Stanley. Her marriages had proven to be very well selected and helpful to her, no doubt her marriage then to Thomas Lord Stanley was the most important, since it undoubtedly saved her life and her son's, then allowing him to become King Henry VII, allowing history to continue as we know it. Margaret was married four times. First, William de la Pole, earl of Suffolk, married his seven-year-old son John to the six-year-old Margaret. (Lancastrian supporter of Henry VI, king awarded her). Henry dissolved Margaret’s marriage to Suffolk’s son in 1453 for treason, then he granted the wordship and marriage of the nine-year-old girl to his half-brothers, Jasper and Edmund Tudor (thought to make Edmund, earl of Richmond his heir, in the right of Margaret Beaufort). Second, twelve-year-old Margaret was married to Edmund Tudor in 1455, by November of 1456 Edmund was dead, and Margaret six months pregnant. Third, which she participated actively in arrangements, to Henry Stafford, a staunch Lancastrian. He died from wounds suffered from fighting for Edward IV and the Yorkist’s at the battle of Barnet. Fourth, a Yorkist supporter, Thomas Lord Stanley. In 1479, she carried the king’s youngest daughter to her christening, while in 1483, during Richard III’s coronation, she carried Queen Anne’s train, “taking precedence over all other peeresses, even over King Richard’s sister.” She negotiated at length with the French king on her son’s behalf. Most significantly, in the last years of his reign, Henry VII delegated power to his mother’s council as a way of relieving the “enormous burden of work” on his own counselors’. From 1499-1507 Margaret presided over this court, “her powers: and her authority judged to be “considerable,” her role unprecedented: in this position, she “broke new ground.” The most gleaming examples of her achievements individually are evident mainly when “parliament declared her a femme sole, a “sole person not covered of any husband,” an act that allowed her lawful title to her own property without reference to her husband” (Jansen 33). Without a doubt this was a highly unprecedented move, and is absolutely astonishing considering the view of women, and how many believed that no power should lie with a woman at all, that it was ‘too great’ of a responsibility for a woman to bear. This proclamation by parliament was followed by Margaret taking “a vow of chastity, which she took in 1499, further enhanced her autonomous status.” (Source is Sharon L. Jansen's The Monstrous Regiment of Women: Female Rulers in Early Modern Europe).
