Margaret, Duchess of Norfolk

alias: Margaret Brotherton; Margaret Marshall -- Margaret, Duchess of Norfolk (c.1320 - 24 Mar 1399),[2] was the eldest daughter of Thomas of Brotherton. Her brother Edward, pre-deceased their father, so she and her remaining sibling, Alice of Norfolk,[3] were co-heirs ... with the earldom of Norfolk falling into abeyance, between them.[4] While Alice did have issue, documentation muddles the exact number of children. She had at least one proven child: Joan, Baroness Montecute,[5] who had no surviving children ... leaving Margaret, the sole heiress.[6]

Margaret was married twice. First to John Segrave ... then Walter, Lord Manny, K.G.[7][8][9] Both men gave her children.[10]

She's the only woman to serve as Earl Marshal, and was created Duchess of Norfolk for life, on 29 September 1397.[11]
