Margaret of England (20 July 1346 – October/December 1361) was a royal princess born in Windsor, the daughter of King Edward III of England and his Queen, Philippa of Hainault.1 She was also known as Margaret of Windsor.
Margaret's first marriage prospect was the eldest son of Albert III of Austria but this was ended due to politics at the time.
A few years later she was affianced to John of Blois son of Charles of Blois and rival of John V of Brittany to the Breton throne; however, this engagement was abandoned because her sister Mary was already married to John V.
Margaret was brought up with John Hastings, 2nd Earl of Pembroke, son of Laurence Hastings, 1st Earl of Pembroke and his wife Agnes, the daughter of Roger Mortimer (the favourite of Isabella of France). As children they had a close companionship.
