This is the Signed original Watercolour painting by John Millar Watt.

Margaret of Anjou was the French-born Queen of Henry VI and a major player on the Lancastrian side of the Wars of the Roses. When her husband began to suffer from a mental illness, Margaret took control. Her conflicts with the Yorkist branch of the Plantaganets led to their open rebellion and the instalment of Edward IV on the throne.

Margaret fought to regain her husband's throne, which she briefly succeeded in doing from late 1470 to early 1471. She was captured after the Lancastrian defeat at the battle of Tewksbury and released into exile in Anjou, France where she died in 1482.

Millar Watt's highly romantic scene shows Queen Margaret, her son the future Edward IV and what looks to be a Barbary Pirate. The signed painting was published in Princess Tina issue 46.
