referred to Marguerite of Angoulême as one of the most elusive queens in French history. "As a published author, she accomplished a feat that most women could only dream: renown and success in a man's world and man's profession. Her most famous work, Heptameron, has been celebrated as a social and political critique."

Following the death of her first husband Charles IV, Duke of Alençon,Comte d'Armagnac & Rodez,Marguerite retained possession of some of her husbands titles and lands whilst the duchy of Alençon was merged with the French crown.

Charles IV of Alencon's 2 surviving sisters,Françoise d'Alençon, Duchesse Vendôme & of Longueville and Anne d'Alençon,Dame La Guerche and Marquise of Montferrat did receive some personal property but were cheated out the duchy of Alençon.

She protected several reformers and was interested in Reform of the Church but did not agree with iconoclasm and vandalism of churches ,she received her last rites from a Friar and died a Catholic.

Perhaps had she lived long she may have become a Huguenot like her strong willed daughter Jeanne III of Navarre.Though no one would know if she was secretly Protestant.
