Edmund Tudor
Birth: 1430
Hertfordshire, England
Death: Nov. 1, 1456
Carmarthenshire, Wales

English Aristocracy. He was the 1st Earl of Richmond and father of King Henry VII of England. He was the older son of Owen Tudor and Catherine of Valois who was the former wife of King Henry V of England. It is not known for sure if he was born at Much Hadham Palace in Hertfordshire or at Hadham in Bedfordshire. King Henry VI recognized him as Earl of Richmond in November 1452. He married Lady Margaret Beaufort of the powerful Beaufort family in November of 1455 when she was only twelve years old. It was in the beginning of the Wars of the Roses that he was captured by the Yorkist Herbert family. He was imprisoned at Carmarthen Castle in South Wales where he caught the plague and died. King Henry VI, his only child was born posthumously at Pembroke Castle only two months after his death. (bio by: Cemetery Cop)
