Lady Margaret CLIFFORD ( - )

1. Lady Margaret CLIFFORD was the daughter of Henry CLIFFORD (1517-1570) and Countess Eleanor BRANDON (1519-1547).


This lady, the only surviving child of Henry Clifford and Eleanor, was by many regarded as having had a greater claim to the English throne than Queen Elizabeth. At Queen Mary Tudor's marriage to Philip II in 1554 Margaret had been her only female relative present and so through her was linked with the two greatest continental rulers, Charles and his heir Philip.
