The Royal House of TUDOR begins with Henry VII King of England, a Welshman who seized power after "The War of Roses"
Henry TUDOR VII King of England born Jan 28 1457 in Pembroke, Pembrokshire, Wales and died Apr 21 1509 in Richmond Palace, Richmond,
Surrey, England and married to Elizabeth of York PLANTAGENET born Feb 11 1466 in Westminster London England and died Feb 11 1503 in London, London England. Issue of Henry and Elizabeth were seven Children. Of note are two children, Margaret, a relative of the Royal Stewart's, (see 1.1 Generation 5 for details) and Henry VIII, perhaps the most famous English monarch of all time. Henry VIII TUDOR King of England born Jun 28 1491 in Greenwich, London, England and died Jan 28 1547 in Westminster, Middlesex, England. Henry had six wives and at least two mistresses. The dissolution or divorce, if you prefer, of Catherine of ARAGON by Henry created "The Church of England" and a power struggle between Catholic's and Protestant's which lasted for generations. Not until the English civil wars ending in 1651 was their resolution with a "Constitutional Monarchy" which required Protestant monarch's.
Henry TUDOR VIII King of England b Jun 28 1491 in Greenwich, London, England and d Jan 28 1547 in Westminster, Middlesex, England had
six wives and two mistresses addressed as follows:
1. Catherine of ARAGON b Dec 15 1485 in Alcal'a de Henares, Madrid, Madrid, Spain and d Jan 7 1536 in Kimbolton Castle, Huntingdonshire, England.

2. Anne BOLEYN b May 1500 in Blicking Hall, Norfolk, England and d May 19 1536 in Tower of London, London, England. Purportedly Henry had Anne beheaded for sexual relations with her brother while married to Henry. Some historians believe she was executed so Henry could marry Jane SEYMOUR. Issue of Henry and Anne was three children including Queen Elizabeth TUDOR I, probably England's most famous Queen b Sep 7 1533 in Greenwich, London, England and d Mar 23 1603 in Richmond. Surrey, England. Elizabeth is often referred to as the "Virgin Queen" probably untrue, but she never married. Elizabeth(a Protestant) had her Catholic cousin, Mary Queen of Scots executed due to evidence Mary planned to overthrow Elizabeth. In any event, Mary had the last say, since her son James I of England (a Protestant) succeeded Elizabeth, and ended the Tudor monarchy.

Queen Lady Jane GREY "Queen for Nine Days" is the great granddaughter of Henry VII. The genealogy goes thusly, Henry VII and Elizabeth of York issued a daughter Mary, married to Charles BRANDON and their offspring included a daughter named Frances BRANDON married to the 1st Duke of Suffolk Henry GREY and finally Queen Lady Jane GREY b Oct 1537 in Bradgate, Leisestershire, England and d Feb 12 1554 in The Tower Of London married to Guilford DUDLEY b 1536 in Healton, Northumberland England d Feb 12 1554 in The Tower of London. By all accounts they were a beautiful couple. Jane was well educated and a committed Protestant. This was a time when the Catholic and Protestant fever was at its highest. Noble Protestants placed Jane on the Throne and Catholic nobles arrested Jane and Guilford and tried and convicted them of "High Treason" and had them beheaded. This enabled the Catholics to place Mary Tudor I on the throne.
