    • Excerpt from Wikipedia:
      In 1483, she was betrothed to the Dauphin of France, later King Charles VIII of France, and was transferred to the guardianship of King Louis XI of France. After Charles renounced the treaty and married Anne of Brittany, Margaret was returned to her father (1493).

      In 1497, she was married to Juan, Prince of Asturias, Infante of Spain (1478-1497), the son and heir of King Ferdinand II of Aragon and Queen Isabella I of Castile, but he died after only six months.

      In 1501, she married Philibert Ii, Duke of Savoy (1480-1504), who died three years later. She was made regent of the Netherland (1507-1515) and guardian of her young nephew Charles (the futer Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor).

      Margaret acted as intermediary between her father and his subjects in the Netherlands, negotiated a treaty of commerce with England favorable to the Flemish cloth interests, and she played a role in the formation of the League of Cambrai (1508).

      After his majority in 1515, Charles rebelled against her influence, but he soon recognized her as one of his wisest advisers, and she was again regent of the Netherlands (1519-30) intermittently until her death. In 1529, together with Louise of Savoy, she negotiated the Treaty of Cambrai, the so-called "Ladies' Peace".

      Both her marriages were childless.

      She lied at Mechelen (between Antwerp and Brussels) after appointing her nephew, Charles V, as her universal and sole heir. She is buried at Bourg-en-Bresse, Franche-Comte.
