Margaret of Anjou was a vengeful and violent woman, or so we have been told - a 'she-wolf' whose vindictive spirit fueled the fifteenth-century dynastic conflict, the Wars of the Roses. In Shakespeare's rendering she literally becomes a bitch, an adulterous queen who mocks her captive enemy, Richard, duke of York, before killing him in cold blood.'
