The Red Queen is a 2010 historical novel by Philippa Gregory, the second of her series The Cousins' War. It is the story of Margaret Beaufort, mother of Henry VII of England.

Critical reception

Publishers Weekly noted of The Red Queen that "Gregory puts her many imitators to shame by dint of unequalled energy, focus, and unwavering execution."

AudioFile magazine gave its Earphones Award to the audiobook recording of the novel, calling Gregory "the queen of British historical fiction" and praising narrator Bianca Amato's performance as "regal and riveting".
