"Margaret Beaufort was a descendant of Edward III through John of Gaunt, and was the mother of the leading Lancastrian claimant to the throne- Henry Tudor-later Henry VII. Stanley was already quite powerful as he had connections through a previous marriage to the Neville family. His family had a long association with the lancastrian cause, although he had been reconciled to Edward IV in 1460.Stanley was also descended from Edward I. Margaret and Lord Stanley were therefore a formidable combination. Margaret herself was a very tough and determined woman (and 'pushy mother'), she was a key conspirator in Buckingham's rebellion against Richard III, and negotiated the marriage between Henry Tudor and Elizabeth of York (daughter of Edward IV). What is surprising given all this is that Richard III trusted the Stanleys at all. They seriously undermined his position at the Battle of Bosworth."
