Henry Tudor (Henry VIII) was the King of England for 38 years from April 21, 1509 until his death on January 28, 1547. He was Lord, and later assumed the Kingship, of Ireland, and continued the nominal claim by English monarchs to the Kingdom of France. He was the son of King Henry VII and Elizabeth of York. He famously had 6 wives, and four children that made it to adulthood. He was the father of the current monarch of England Queen Elizabeth, as well as the father of her three half siblings; Henry Fitzroy, Mary Tudor, and Edward Tudor.

Early LifeEdit

He was born the third child and second son of Henry VII of England and Elizabeth of York. Henry became the heir to the English throne when his older brother, Arthur died. He became King at the age of 18 when his father died. Henry married his first wife Catherine of Aragon that same year. They stayed married for 24 years until he met Anne Boleyn. However when Pope Clement VII refused to annul his married Henry broke away from The Catholic Church creating The Church of England.

Season 1Edit


King Henry of France announced that Mary Tudor of England was dying. Once she was declared dead, he wanted Mary Stuart of Scotland and his son, Prince Francis to already be married and to take England together with Mary as the new Queen, skipping over Henry VIII 2nd daughter, Elizabeth, since she was Protestant.

Mary said she could not, as Elizabeth was Henry's own blood. Her England rejected her as their Queen, it would mean her death.


Mentioned in conversation of The Battle of Solway Moss


Pietro de' Medici made a reference to Queen Catherine about the time some of King Henry VIII's wives practiced laying their head on the chopping block before their execution.


Season 2Edit

Queen Catherine mentioned how The Boleyn Sister worked together and it worked out for only their father. Catherine was referring to Anne and Mary Boleyn. Mary was Henry VIII's mistress, although Anne Boleyn refused. Years later Anne refused to sleep with King Henry until he divorced his first wife and married her. Anne later gave birth to Elizabeth Tudor/

Season 3Edit

Queen Elizabeth mentioned to Lady Lola how royals have strange family loyalty. Brining up how her father cut of her mother's head. And her sister had her jailed.
