My Tudor Girls Family Tree

I’m working for a long time on this art, but I finally finished it!

I started with the “mothers of the dynasty”, Margaret Beaufort (from Tudor/Lancaster side) and Elizabeth Woodville (from York side), representing the red and white roses from the War of the Roses that give rise to the famous Tudor Rose. Beaufort and Woodville decide to marry their children, Henry Tudor and Elizabeth of York to end the war and start a new dynasty.

Henry and Elizabeth had 2 sons and 2 daughters. Arthur married with Catalina de Aragon, the youngest daughter of Ferdinand of Aragon and Isabella of Castille, but the prince died a few months later without consummate the marriage, so Catalina married with Henry VIII. She was the mother of Mary I of England (the Bloody Mary). Henry left Catalina to marry Anne Boleyn, breaking with the Catholic church to be able to hold the wedding. Anne was the mother of Elizabeth I of England (the Virgin Queen). After Anne, Henry married with Jane Seymour and finally had his so wanted male heir, the young king Edward VI. Henry had more 3 wives: Anne of Cleves, Kathryn Howard and Katherine Parr.

Margaret married with James IV of Scots from Stuart Dynasty, and was the mother of James V of Scots. James took Mary of Guise as wife, and was the father of Mary Stuart, also known as Mary of Scots. Mary Stuart was queen of France and queen of Scots, and tried to be queen of England too, and lost her head because of it. But her son, James VI of Scots became king of England after the death of Elizabeth I, the last queen of this dynasty.

Mary Rose Tudor was queen of France for a short period, and had no children from this marriage, but from her second marriage, with Charles Brandon, she had 3 girls, and the older daughter was Lady Frances Brandon, the mother of the Nine Days Queen, Jane Grey.
