Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Margaret, Duchess of Norfolk, 2nd Countess of Norfolk (c. 1320 - 24 March 1399), also known as Lady Manny, was the daughter of Thomas of Brotherton, 1st Earl of Norfolk, by his first wife Alice Hayles. She succeeded to the Earldom due to the death of her childless brother, Edward, in 1334, and became Lord Marshal.In 1350, Margaret and John de Segrave began seeking a divorce based on the premise that they were contracted in marriage before she was of age, and that she had never consented to marry him. Furthermore, she had begun a relationship with a knight of great renown, Sir Walter Manny, 1st Baron Manny, as she crossed the channel in October 1350 to meet with him in Calais, without the king's permission.show more
