Groomed to be Queen of France, Margaret was highly educated and cultured, writing her own poetry (perhaps music too) and creating one of the most extensive libraries of her age. She was a very active patron; Pierre de la Rue was her court composer, and the great Josquin wrote for her. She also presided over the famous scriptorium of Petrus Alamire, source of many sumptuous music manuscripts.
