House of Tudor

  1. Henry VII
    Considering he had a very tenuous claim to the throne, Henry VII would produce one of the most fascinating and well known of all the royal dynasties. We have all heard about his son with six wives and his grandchildren, particularly Bloody Mary and the Virgin Queen.
  2. Henry VIII
    Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived – the rhyme is well known and Henry VIII is probably the best known monarch because of his penchant for beheading wives and advisors and for producing England’s first sitting queens.
  3. Edward VI
    Despite Henry VIII’s insistence on having a son to continue the great Tudor dynasty, it is his two daughters that are most well known. His only son, Edward VI became king at the age of nine and only ruled for 6 years before succumbing to an illness and dying.
  4. Lady Jane Grey
    Historians dispute whether Lady Jane Grey should feature in lists of English monarchs, after all, she was only queen for nine days and only because of a plot to keep Mary Tudor from the line of succession.
  5. Mary I
    As well as earning the title of Bloody Mary, Mary I is also considered to be England’s first ruling queen. Her predecessor Lady Jane Grey’s claim to the title is disputed and Empress Matilda was known as Lady of England rather than Queen, so her claim is debatable too.
  6. Elizabeth I
    When Elizabeth was born, no one suspected that she would be one of the greatest monarchs of the Tudor dynasty, she is better remembered than either of her siblings and continues to have a cult surrounding her name.
