Quote
Margaret was lovely, gracious and very beautiful ("facie venusta valde" says the compiler of the Book of Pluscarden, "a very lovely face"), with a certain ability to write poesy and rhymes (no example of her compositions survived destruction at her husband's hands after her death). She was also superficial and very interested in court's social and gallant life. She was a favourite of her father-in-law Charles VII of France and popular among the courtiers. However, she felt herself alien amongst the French court, and became depressed.

She had a strained relationship with her husband, the future king of France, mainly because of Louis' hatred of his father. Charles VII ordered the marriage, and Margaret frequently supported the king against her husband. It is said that she wore a strongly tied corset because of her fear of pregnancies. Her unhappy marriage furthered her depression, as did the gossip spread regarding her by supporters of Louis.

She died childless in 1445, at the age of 20. Melancholy and distressed by slander against her, she sank into a final languor before dying. Her last words, in response to urging to rouse herself and live, were supposedly Fi de la vie! qu'on ne m'en parle plus ("Fie on life! Speak no more of it to me"). She was buried in St Laon Abbey, Thouars, Deux-Sevres, France.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margaret_of_Scotland_%28Dauphine_of_France%29

Margaret was described as having
Quote
comely figure and exceeding fair countenance. It was says another chronicler, "Moult belle chose de voir les paremens et abillemens, en quoi elle estoit, les quelle elle  avoit apportez de san pois." A long robe flowed from her shoulders and a crown of gold was about her head.

Interesting description of the Slander against her.......

Hi, I have had a good look through my books and also on the interweb :-)
I cannot find any information on her burial. One source said that they could find no reference to her funeral or her will.
She supposedly died at her manor at Grafton but that doesn't mean to say she was buried there. Once again, another fascinating lady with so many gaps in her story.

Thank You .

I also cannot find anything as to where the Duchess or her 2nd husband (Richard Woodville 1st Earl Rivers)  are buried .
