Bloomsbury acquires Tudor biography

Bloomsbury has signed a biography of Tudor noblewoman Lady Margaret Douglas, by historian Morgan Ring.

Bill Swainson in London and George Gibson in New York signed world English rights in So High a Blood at auction in a deal with Anna Power at Johnson & Alcock, with plans to publish in spring 2016.

The book, based on previously unexamined sources, explores the story of Douglas, Henry VIII's niece and half-sister of James V, and her role in the period's political and religious landscape.
