9. GABRIELLE ANWAR AS PRINCESS MARGARET ON THE TUDORS (2007)

There were really two princesses from The Tudors that we could have chosen for our list: Sarah Bolger as Princess Mary and Gabrielle Anwar as Princess Margaret. But fuck it, we decided to dedicate a pick to an older gal, and show some love to King Henry VIII’s older sister, Margaret.

She was only on the show for like six episodes (Margaret died of tuberculosis in the first season), but she made her mark with us because, well, she was kind of a badass.

Her younger brother banished her from the kingdom after she killed her husband, the King of Portugal, and then secretly married another less powerful man. Just ask some of King Henry VIII’s headless wives—it takes major cojones to go behind the back of that dude.
