House of Tudor 1485 - 1603 family tree
Tudor History from the beginning (shown here) through Henry VIII and his six wives up until Queen Elizabeth I.
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 is buried in St. George's Chapel at Windosr Castle, not in Westminster Abbey (where one might expect). Jane Seymour is buried with him.
Book that helped Henry VIII annul his marriage discovered in Cornwall
Works by philosopher and theologian William of Ockham published in 1495. Contains notes and highlighted texts used to argue king's independence. Discovery shows how kings' advisers scoured country trying to find texts. Passages used as he sought annulment to marry second wife Anne Boleyn. The period, which led to break-up with Rome, is documented in Wolf Hall.
Tudor tree from William the Conqueror to Elizabeth I. Found from a very cool website where the blogger says, "Ask Henry" and answers questions as if he were Henry!
