On this day in Scottish History

29 November

1489 - Margaret Tudor, English princess and Queen of James IV was born.

The daughter of Henry VII of England, she became the wife of James in a political marriage known as the "Union of the Thistle and the Rose". It was through her bloodline that King James VI of Scotland was able to base his claim to the English crown on the death of his cousin, Elizabeth I.
