The Tudor Dynasty

The Tudor Dynasty began when Henry VII took the throne of England, married Elizabeth of York and had children. You could argue that the Tudor dynasty began with Margaret Beaufort and Edmund Tudor or maybe even Catherine of Valois and Owen Tudor. For now, let’s assume it began with Henry and Elizabeth.

To make things a little easier to understand I tried to color code:

Green: Children of Henry VII & Elizabeth of York (E.o.Y)

Purple: Descendants of Margaret Tudor

Blue: Descendants of Henry VIII

Orange: Descendants of Mary Tudor, Queen of France & Duchess of Suffolk

  1. Nice work. For me was a surprise when I have learnt that wife of George Boleyn is descendant of one Plantagenet. This is for me a bit tricky to see mutual connections between Tudors and Plantagenets.
