Richard III Characters

Margaret Plantagenet, Countess of Salisbury, is the daughter of George Duke of Clarence, and is in her grandmother the Duchess of York’s keeping after Clarence’s arrest. 

She follows her brother Edward’s lead in things, swearing to pray against the King whom they blame for their father’s death, and refusing to weep for the King unless the Queen weep for their father. She loves her cousin Edward, who ought to become King, and goes with her aunt Anne to try and see him at the Tower. Richard puts her out of the way by marrying her off to someone of no consequence, to avoid more succession troubles as he takes the throne.
