    Mar­garet was born on 10 Jan­u­ary 1480, as the sec­ond child and only daugh­ter of Max­i­m­il­ian of Aus­tria and Mary of Bur­gundy, co-sov­er­eigns of the Low Coun­tries. She was named after her step­grand­mother, Mar­garet of York, Dowa­ger Duchess of Bur­gundy, who was es­pe­cially close to Duchess Mary. In 1482, Mar­garet's mother died and her older brother, Philip the Hand­some, at that time three years of age, suc­ceeded her as sov­er­eign of the Low Coun­tries, with his fa­ther Max­i­...

    Princess of Asturias

    In order to achieve an al­liance with Queen Is­abella I of Castile and King Fer­di­nand II of Aragon, Max­i­m­il­ian started ne­go­ti­at­ing the mar­riage of their only son and heir, John, Prince of As­turias, to Mar­garet, as well as the mar­riage of their daugh­ter, Juana, to Philip.

    Duchess of Savoy

    In 1501, Mar­garet mar­ried Philib­ert II, Duke of Savoy (1480–1504). This mar­riage was child­less as well, and he died after three years. A grief-stricken Mar­garet threw her­self out of a win­dow, but was saved. After being per­suaded to bury her hus­band, she had his heart em­balmed so she could keep it with her forever. She vowed never to marry again. Her court his­to­rian and poet Jean Lemaire de Belgesgave her the title "Dame de deuil" (Lady of Mourning).

    Mar­garet had re­ceived a fine ed­u­ca­tion. She played sev­eral in­stru­ments, was well read and wrote po­etry. Her court at Meche­len was vis­ited by the great hu­man­ists of her time, in­clud­ing Eras­mus, Adrian of Utrecht (later Pope Adrian VI), and Hein­rich Cor­nelius Agrippa. Agrippa ded­i­cated his (ar­guably) fem­i­nist work Decla­ma­tion on the No­bil­ity and Pre­em­i­nence of the Fe­male Sex, which later be­came widely in­flu­en­tial, to Margaret. She pos­sessed a rich li­brary, con­sist­ing mostly of missals, his­tor­i­cal and eth­i­cal trea­tises (which in­cluded the works of Chris­tine de Pizan) and po­etry. It in­cluded the fa­mous il­lu­mi­nated Très Riches Heures du duc de Berry. She or­dered sev­eral splen­did music man­u­scripts from Pierre Alamire to send them as gifts to mem­bers and her fam­ily and to her po­lit­i­cal re­la­tions, and pos­sessed sev­eral Chan­son­niers her­self. They con­tained works by Josquin des Prez, Jo­hannes Ock­eghem, Jacob Obrecht and...
