Joan Beaufort
Birth: 1404
Death: Jun. 15, 1445

Scottish Monarch. Queen consort of James I. The daughter of John Beaufort, Marquess of Somerset and Margaret Holland, she caught the eye of James I during his imprisonment in England. She so inspired him that he wrote a long love poem to her, The King's Quhair. They were married in Southwark on February 2, 1424. Together they had eight children, including the future James II. Two years after her husband's murder, she married James Stewart, the Black Knight of Lorn, in 1439. She had one son by Stewart, John, Earl of Atholl. Joan died at Dunbar Castle. (bio by: Kristen Conrad)
