House of Tudor 1485 - 1603 family tree
1st January 1511: In the early hours of the morning Catherine of Aragon gave birth to a son, Henry Duke of Cornwall, son of Henry VIII. Tragically the little boy was to die only fifty two days later on February 22nd. How different Tudor history and England may have been if the little boy had lived.
Symbolism of The Tudor Rose: 22nd August 1485 – The Battle of Bosworth Field was won by the Lancastrians. Their leader Henry Tudor, Earl of Richmond, became the first English monarch of the Tudor dynasty by his victory and subsequent marriage to a Yorkist princess. His opponent Richard III, the last king of the House of York, was killed in the battle.
Henry VIII & Anne Boleyn - detail from 'The Banquet of Henry VIII in York Place' (Whitehall Palace) (painted in 1832). The artist, James Stephanoff (1788-1874) was the son of a Russian stage designer who settled in London. Stephanoff became the official 'Historical Painter in Watercolors' to King William IV.
a wild and crazy date in Tudor history — On 28 January 1457, Henry VII was born and on 28 January 1547, Henry VIII died. Two kings in a row, father and son, same date, birth for one, death for the other, two transposed numbers at the end. Wicked!
