  3. Excellent resource – thanks for putting this together! I was showing this to a friend of mine & she was a little confused that there was no line indicating Mary was the child of Henry VIII & Catherine. Is there some meaning behind that indication?

    1. Hi there, and thanks. It would be exciting if there was an implication….but sadly, just incompetence and a missing line! Sorry…

    2. I think there is always a certain amount of confusion,between Mary the first ,ie bloody Mary and Mary queen of scots.

  4. Edward VI is impressive – he looks like he was king until 1554, a year after he died in 1553. Might be typo there, but then again with Tudors and their propaganda – what information can you trust 😉

  5. I am a defendant of the Tudors but don’t have the right to the name because of the prosecution between King Henry 8th. It was changed from Tudor to Tutor.

  6. I have been told that I am a defendant from King Henry VII. I wish my grandmother was still alive so I could ask more questions, all my mom can remember was they had to run for their lives and change their last name from King to Roy and they landed in Nova Scotia before making their way to New Brunswick!

    1. Roy is a variation of Roi. A French and Belgium title of royalty. Like Rex, Ri, Raja, and King, it is a title of monarch. When Henry VIII had his illegitimate son, he was titled, FitzRoy, meaning royal bastard or illegitimate son of the king. Henry VIII’s last name was Tudor, not King.
