Margaret Tyler entry: Overview screen.
MT's reference to her "aged years" may or may not carry a modern sense. Women at this time were led to think of themselves as old once they were past childbearing; on the other hand life expectancy, for those who survived the childbearing years, was high. In any case MT was probably born before 1530 (making her older, rather than younger, than Queen Elizabeth).
4 August 1578
MT's translation of a Spanish romance by Diego Ortúñez de Calahorra, The Mirrour of Princely Deedes and Knighthood
, was entered in the Stationers' Register
The career of MT's dedicatee must have been largely in the future when she died, at some unknown date after her publication. Nor is it known if she was still alive in 1598, when other hands took up the translation of the Calahorra romance which she had begun.
