Margaret of Anjou

Margaret of Anjou was the daughter of René, Duke of Anjou (also Duke of Bar, Lorraine, Calabria, Count of Provence and Piedmont, and claimed King of Naples, Sicily and Jerusalem) and wife of King Henry VI of England. She issued her Charter to establish the Queen's College of St Margaret and St Bernard on 15 April 1448, the same day as the foundation stone was laid.

There were no contemporary portraits of Margaret. This travesty of her was published centuries after her death.

The connection with her is remembered in the name of the Angevin Room at Queens'.
