Today, there are no traceable descendants who are directly descended from King Henry VIII himself. We are descendants of the security branches of King’s two sisters, Mary Tudor and Margaret Tudor.
The family tree continues today with the 11th Duke of Beaufort, His Grace, David Somerset, the rightful successor of the Plantagenet dynasty. The closest descendants of King Richard III. they are Wendy Duldig and Michael Ibsen, 14 cousins of the Anne of York family.
Other descendants include HRH the Duchess of Cornwall and her descendants and David Cameron and her descendants from illegitimate descendants to descendants of James I and VI and thus Henry VIII’s sister Charles II had many descendants, as did William IV.
Hundreds, if not thousands, of Tudor descendants live today, including Queen Elizabeth II, her children and grandchildren. They are related through the Margaret Tudors line. The most famous of the Tudor royal sons, Henry VIII, had 3 legitimate surviving Tudors, none of whom produced an offspring of their own.
The Tudor House survives through the female line, first with the Stuart House, which occupied the English throne for most of the next century, then the Hanoverian House, thanks to James’s granddaughter Sophia. Queen Elizabeth II is a direct descendant of Henry VII.
The queen’s patrilineal lineage goes back to Theodoric I, Earl of Wettin, who died in 976. The queen, like all other European monarchs, can trace her ancestry back to Charlemagne in several ways. Lately she has also been related to other European monarchs, she and the king of Norway are cousins.
The Plantagenet dynasty began when Henry II assumed the crown of England in 1154. It split into the younger branches of Lancaster and York in 1399 and was eventually replaced by the Tudors after Richard III laid the foundation for what is now the Great Brittany.
In the 12th century, English was considered a peasant language: the upper class spoke French and the clergy used Latin. By 1390, English had become the language of literature, just as Plantagenet had made it a respectable language.
The first king of this line was King Henry II of England, who died in 1189. However, an illegitimate line of the plant agent dynasty is still alive. To return to the Plantagenet dynasty, we have to go to King Edward III. return from England.
Break the Plantagenet down into noises: [PLAN] + [TAJ] + [UH] + [NUHT] Say it out loud and exaggerate the noises until you can produce them consistently. Register and say Plantagenet in full sentences, watch yourself and listen. You will be able to spot your mistakes very easily.
Queen Elizabeth II, 1926
Henry’s daughter, Elizabeth I, was the last of the Tudor monarchs. She had no children. However, Queen Elizabeth II is related to Henry VIII through Henry’s sister and she comes directly from Henry VII, the father of Henry VIII. Elizabeth II is also from the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha.
There were other, deeper reasons why Elizabeth did not want to marry, which in my opinion was more important than her fear of losing her autonomy as queen. Elizabeth’s father, Henry VIII, had her mother Anna Bolena executed for treason and adultery, and her stepmother Catherine Howard later suffered the same fate.
The Tudors were a Welsh-English family that ruled England from 1485 to 1603. They came after Henry VII’s victory over Yorkist King Richard III. in power at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485, Elizabeth I died. no children.
The Tudors were by no means historically correct. Apart from the fact that Henry VIII never seemed to get old throughout the series. The only warning I would have given was the episode about the case of Cardinal Wolsey, played by Australian actor Sam Neill.
On July 17, 1917, King George V changed the name of the British royal family from Saxe-Coburg and Gotha to Windsor, England. The last Tudor monarch was in 1603, when Elizabeth I died some 300 years earlier.
