Childbirth at Catherine's late age was a lottery and she lost. I don't think anyone knows what happened to her baby, Mary, after her mother's death, do they? There were rumours that she grew up to adulthood and married, though I think these are unsubstantiated.
Mary was first taken by her father to London and lived in the Protector's household. When he was executed, Mary was sent to Katherine, Duchess of Suffolk. Despite being a devout Catholic, she was not pleased at the cost to house Mary, who as a Queen's daughter had her own household of servants and such. Katherine wrote many letters to the Protector asking, as it was supposed to be, that Mary's upkeep be paid for. William Cecil intervened and it was passed by Act of Parliament,that Mary should inherit her father's property- as a traitor his property was forfeit. After that, nothing is known about what happened next- her inheritance was never claimed.

There is a poem written by the Duchess of Suffolk's former chaplain that is believed to be written about the death of Mary, around age two.

No-one seems to know. It's assumed that she died young, because presumably she'd have had a prominent position at court had she lived to adulthood. I feel sorry for Catherine Parr too - she did have a sad life.


I get the impression Edward was OK about her remarriage, because he liked his uncle Thomas Seymour.


The Habsburg princes and princesses of Spain had the title "of Austria" but not "of Spain" or "of Aragon and Castile". So you could have ended up with an heir to the English and Spanish thrones who was known as both the Prince of Wales and Prince X of Austria. I'm confusing myself now!

I knew it probably didn't end well! Thanks for that, Charmed Hour. A very nice little tribute for this little girl from the Chaplain.

Isn't it strange that there are no records of little Mary Seymour after 1550 given that she was in the care of Katherine , Dowager Duchess of Suffolk?

Very little is known of Mary. Perhaps any letters, records etc pertaining to her haven't survived.

Few English monarchs have such a poor reputation as Henry VI. Yet he was held in high regard by the Tudors, says Michael Hicks, despite losing the Wars of the Roses.

It is hard to imagine reigns more catastrophic than those of Henry VI. Succeeding to the throne as an infant, his long minority was followed by his disastrous majority, in which he lost both the Hundred Years War (1337-1453) and the first two Wars of the Roses (1459-61, 1469-71), both his realms in France (1453) and England (twice).

Much blame has always been laid at Henry’s door. He did not compare well with his father, Henry V (1387-1422), a charismatic soldier and decision-maker made immortal by his victory at Agincourt in 1415.

Thank you for the article An Ard Ri, that was a fascinating read - the Tudors have always interested me.

You're welcome I must admit I'm more interested in both of Henry VIII's sisters than Henry himself.
