4th child of Henry VII and Elizabeth and their youngest to survive infancy. Mary was quite close to Henry VIII when they were kids. She betrothed originally to Charles V, Holy Roman emperor in 1507. The wedding though was called off in 1513. It would be one of two attempts to marry him to a Tudor. He was later suggested as a husband to Mary's niece and namesake, Mary I. Mary I was his cousin, as Charles was the son of Catherine of Aragaon's sister Joanna the Mad. Mary I would marry his son Philip II.

Instead in 1514 she was married to Louis XII of France. He was 52 and she was 18. It was his third marriage. His first marriage was to Joan, daughter of Louis XI of France. He had their marriage on grounds of not consummating it. He did so in order to marry her former sister in law, Anne of Brittany. Anne had been married to Joan's brother Charles VIII (her second marriage. She had seven children by Charles but all but one were stillbirth/died the same day/or before their first birthday. Her eldest son lived to be three. Anne's marriage to Louis only produced two daughters Claude and Renee. It was said that Louise of Savoy, whose son Francis was next in line, had used witch craft to ensure Anne had no sons or hers died. Frances was married to Anne's daughter Claude and became Frances I.

Louis married Mary in hopes of finally having a son. He married her barely ten months after Anne died. He died though three months after they married, so no children came of it. Frances I wished to marry her, it seems he hoped his wife would die as she was alive. There were other French suggestions like the Duke of Savoy. But Mary was in love with Charles Brandon, and had only agreed to marry Louis on the agreement that she would marry for love the second time.

Her brother did not plan on upholding that bargain and wanted to marry her off again. And the court didtnt want Charles gaining even more power. He sent Charles to bring his sister back. Mary and Charles were married behind his back. It was treason and Henry could have had Charles executed. It was the intervention of Thomas Wolseley who saved Brandon from execution. And Henry's love for both his sister and for Charles who was his life long best friend, which saved him from prison as well. They were fined though. They later were given an official wedding at Greenwich that Henry attended.

Mary's relationship was strained with her brother over his wish to marry Anne Boelyn who had been one of her ladies in waiting. Mary spent most of her time at her husband's estate instead of court.

Mary died in 1528 from the sweating sickness. Delegations of both the French and English courts attended her funeral. Her brother and husband by tradition were not in attendance.Her daughter Frances was chief mourner, though her stepdaughters were part as well. She was originally buried at Bury St Edmunds Abbey but was moved to St Mary's at Bury St Edmunds.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Mar...ury_St_Edmunds

Mary had four children with Charles. She was also an active stepmother to her husband's two children from his previous marriage. So much so the girls forced their way to stand with Mary's actual children at her funeral.

-Henry Brandon died at age six
-Lady Frances Brandon married Henry Grey, Marques of Dorset. They were parents of Jane of the 9 days, as well as Katherine and Mary. Frances would later marry a Plantaganent heir Edward Courtenay after the death of Henry. Her only grandchildren were from her daughter Lady Katherine (from whom the queen mum among others is a descendant of).
-Eleanor Brandon- married Henry Clifford, Earl of Cumberland. Eleanor had one daughter to reach adulthood Margaret who became Countess of Derby.
-Henry Brandon- died at either 10 or 11

She was also stepmother to the 2 daughters of Charles and Anne Browne
-Anne- married Edward Grey, Baron Grey of Powys. It was an unhappy marriage and she ran off with a lover Randall Haworth. Her father actually made it so Edward had to continue to support her financially. But he cut Anne of his will. After the death of her husband, Anne married Randall. She was childless from both marriages.
-Mary was married to Thomas Stanley, 2nd Baron Monteagle. The couple had six children. Their son William was succeeded by his grandson, a son of his daughter and heiress Elizabeth Stanley.


Charles would later go on to marry Katherine Willoughby who had been his ward. His two sons with Katherine unfortunately also died young, within hours of each other from the sweating sickness.

Mary was a strong supporter of her sister in law ,Katherine of Aragon and had a strong 'dislike' for Anne Boleyn and what a pity that Mary didn't like longer she might have been a form of support her niece Princess Mary who was named in her honour.

Louisa was as traditional with German royals (still often is in some houses) named for her godparents. In her case her aunts, Queen Louise of Denmark and Anne, Princess of Orange. Her godfather was her paternal uncle by marriage Frederick, Landgrave of Hesse-Kassel. Frederick was married to her father's younger sister Mary. She was the 7th of her parents nine children.

Louisa was quite close to her sister Caroline Mathilda. The Danish court came looking for a bride for the new king Christian VII. Christian was a son of Louisa's Aunt and godmother Louise. Her Aunt had died in 1751. Christian was described as intelligent but he suffered from mental health issues, like schizophrenia. The Danish sent found that Louisa was frail and unhealthy, and instead sought the hand of her sister Caroline Mathilda. Caroline would marry the young king at 15 but the marriage would later be dissolved by divorce for her affairs. Caroline had two children, though one was the daughter of her lover, though officially recognized by the king.

A second attempt was made to marry Louisa off. This time it was to Adolphus Frederick IV, Duke of Mecklenburg-Strelitz. His sister Charlotte was married to Louisa's brother the future George III. The betrothal was called off as Louisa was too ill and there was fear for her health. Adolphus never married, dying at 56. He was succeeded by his brother Charles.

By the time her sister left for Denmark, Louisa's health was in severe decline. She was suffering from TB and was soon an invalid. She died two years later in 1568 at Carlton House in London.

It was the first wedding between a daughter of a monarch and a British subject to be given official recognition since Mary Tudor and Charles Brandon.

Louise had been serving as her mother's secretary since 1866. Her mother had worried about her being too indiscreet for the job but she proved her wrong. Bored with basic court life, she found being her mother's companion and helping with political correspondence was an interesting change in pace.

She was a sought after bride like her sisters. The top three contenders were the Crown Prince of Denmark, Prince Albert of Prussia and Prince William of Orange. The future Frederick VIII was Alexandra's brother, but Victoria was opposed to another Danish match. And insisted her daughter remain close. Frederick would marry Louise of Sweden in 1869. Albert of Prussia was suggested by Vicky, but again the queen was against another Prussian marriage. Albert was also reluctant to move to England. Albert would later marry Marie of Sax-Altenberg. William lived a very extravagant life in Paris and openly with his lover so the queen quickly vetoed him. He died in 1879. He had wished to marry his lover Countess Mathilde of Limburg-Stirrum but his parents refused as a marriage to a noble was unequal, and there was actually concern Mathilde was a bastard of William III making them half siblings. Her parents refused permission which was needed as she was under 20. He died before his father, like his brothers, leading to Queen Wilhemina.


Louise viewed marriage to a prince as unattractive. John Campbell was not only not royal, but his father was a supporter of Gladstone. Louise's brother feared that the family would be dragged into politics.


The queen stepped in for her daughter and overcame protests of her son.


Quote:
That which you object to [that Louise should marry a subject] I feel certain will be for Louise's happiness and for the peace and quiet of the family ... Times have changed; great foreign alliances are looked on as causes of trouble and anxiety, and are of no good. What could be more painful than the position in which our family were placed during the wars with Denmark, and between Prussia and Austria? ... You may not be aware, as I am, with what dislike the marriages of Princesses of the Royal Family with small German Princes (German beggars as they most insultingly were called) ... As to position, I see no difficulty whatever; Louise remains what she is, and her husband keeps his rank ... only being treated in the family as a relation when we are together ...[21]

The couple shared a love for art but it was not a love match. And unfortunately produced no children. Her husband was known to have 'friends' and his friends were known to be bi-sexual or homosexual so rumors spread about his own taste.

My province, and one of our parks Lake Louise, are named for her (Alberta was named for her middle name not for her father) due to the time her and her husband spent in Canada.

March 22 1519- birth of Catherine Willoughby. Week of the wives of Charles Brandon. First Mary and now his last wife. She was the daughter of William Willoughby, 11th Baron Willoughby de Eresby and Maria de Salinas. Maria was one of the Spanish ladies who accompanied Catherine over to England, along with her sister Ines. She remained even after many of the women returned when Catherine's moneys were cut off. She remained one of Catherine's most trusted friends at court. Her daughter Catherine was named for the queen.


Maria was the second wife of William. As a wedding gift they were given possession of Grimsthorpe castle. It remains in the family, with their descendent Jane Heathcote-Drummond-Willoughby, 28th Baroness Willoughby de Eresby. The current family also owns Drummond castle, which is the seat of the current Baroness, but that was a later acquisition. There have been 4 females to hold the title in their own right, including Catherine.

The home gifted to Maria and William (still owned by the family)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grimsthorpe_Castle

Home of the current Baroness (not owned back in Catherine's time)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drummond_Castle


Catherine had two brothers who died in infancy. Catherine inherited her father's barony when he died when she was seven. Her wardship fell to the king but he sold it to his brother in law Charles Brandon. She was a very wealthy heiress though her Uncle Sir Christopher disputed much of her inheritance (believing some were left to heirs male and not all to heirs general). It was not all settled until the reign of Elizabeth I, in her line's favor, but Charles was able to force Christopher to hand over most of his claims on her estate.


Catherine was originally engaged to be married to Charles' eldest son by Mary, Henry Brandon. Mary though died in 1533 and Catherine was one of her chief mourners. Three months after Mary died, Charles married his 14 year old ward. She bore her husband two sons Henry and Charles who both died as teens from the sweating sickness. Catherine and her husband were both active at court. They both greeted Anne of Cleves on her arrival, and helped organize the tour for Henry and Catherine Howard.


She was widowed in 1545. When Catherine Parr died after giving birth to her daughter with Thomas Seymour, Catherine was named her guardian. She asked for financial help from court to support the child. The baby later died and is said to have been buried at Catherine's home. She was also a guardian to Lady Mary Grey, her step-granddaughter, when Mary was put under house arrest. Her own sons died within hours of each other in their teens from the sweating sickness.


She remarried in 1553 for love, to Richard Bertie. Unlike Charles, Richard was only 2 years her senior. Despite her mother having been a great supporter of Catherine of Aragon, Catherine and Richard were not. During the reign of Mary I, they were Marion exiles. Sigismund II, King of Poland appointed them administrators in Lithuania during their exile. Despite her remarriage she continued to use the title Duches of Suffolk.


Catherine died in 1580, back home in England. They returned during the reign of Elizabeth and her husband held some parliamentary positions. He tried to claim her Barony but he was denied. Her husband died in 1582.


Catherine had two children by Richard, who unlike her sons with Charles, would survive to adulthood. They were both prominent protestants.


-Susan Bertie: Susan was first married to Reginald Grey of Wrest, who was restored to the Earl of Kent 2 years later in 1572. Her husband died a year later, and the couple had no children. The new earl was Reginald's brother, and Susan was offered a place at court by the queen (he was childless as well and the title went to a third brother Charles). She later married Sir John Wingfield, who was a nephew of Bess of Hardwick. They had two sons Perregrine and Robert. She was widowed a second time at 42, in 1596 when her husband was shot during an attack on the Spanish city of Cadiz.


-Perregrine Bertie: became 13th Baron Willoughby de Eresby. He was a soldier and diplomat whose last position was Govenor of Berwick. He died there in 1601. Perregrine was married to Mary de Vere, the daughter of the 16th earl of Oxford. The couple had three sons, and made Gripsholm castle their home after his parents moved to London. They were separated when he died. Their son Robert became the 1st Earl of Lindsey. Their son Peregrine was a soldier, and among other things served as commissioner of the swans. Their third son was Henry. The current de Eresby clan are descended from him.

Margaret was born in Lorraine, her mother's land. Her father was Rene the Good, King of Naples and Duke of Anjou. But he was nicknamed the king of many crowns but no kingdoms. Her mother Isabelle was Duchess of Lorraine in her own right, following the death of her father Charles II. She spent most of her childhood though in Provence and then near Naples. Her education was over seen by her mother who saw to her receiving the same education as her older brothers had.

April 23, 1445 she was married to Henry VI. He was 24, and she was 16. Their marriage was part of an agreement with the French king. The French royal couple were related to both the bride and groom. Charles VII was brother to Henry's mother Catherine. And his wife Marie was a sister of Rene. It would have fallen to Charles to pay Margaret's dowry. In return for not paying one, he was to receive Maine and Anjou. Henry feared the reaction of the English public so that was kept secret.

Unlike her husband who was more interested in religion then in governing, Margaret was a formidable political mind. She seems to have inherited it from her grandmother Yolande. Unfortunately her husband had a serious mental issue and lost touch with reality on several occurences including after the birth of their son Edward. Margaret did share her husband's love of learning and she helped found Queen's college Cambridge.

During the war of the roses Margaret led her own army in the final battle of Tewkesbury. Her army was destroyed and her son was killed. She ended up in the tower of London with her husband. May 21, 1471 Henry VI died under suspicion of regicide. In 1472 Margaret was transferred to the custody of Alice Chaucer, Duchess of Suffolk who was one of her former ladies. She remained in custody until 1475 when Louis XI ransomed her. Louis was the cousin of Margaret and her husband, being the son of Charles VII and Marie of Anjou.

She spent her remaining seven years in France, as a poor relation to the king. She was hosted by Francis de Vignolles at his castle Dampierre-sur-Loire which was near Anjou. She died in August 1482 and was buried next to her parents in Angers Cathedral. Her remains were scattered during the revolution though.

Her father Peter was a horrible husband. Peter had secretly married her mother Maria, but then was forced to repudiate her. He kept her as his mistress though until his death, and she bore him three daughters and a son. Beatrice, the eldest daughter became a nun. Constance was second, Isabella third and their brother Alfonso last. Alfonso was crown prince but he died at the age of three. He had been forced to marry Blanche of Bourbon, but after claiming she slept with his half brother on the way to the wedding, he abandoned her after only three days of marriage. He had her imprisoned. Her cousin John II of France appealed to the Pope to have her husband excommunicated and for her freedom but Peter refused. He later had her executed. All during this, he was with Constance's mother. He later married Juana de Castro but he deserted her after only 2 days of marriage. He had a son John with her. Her father was assassinated by his half brother, the eventual Henry II of Castile. Henry had left his brother's body unburied for three days and victim of ridicule and abuse during the time.

She married John of Gaunt September 21, 1371. She was 17, he was 31. Her father had been aided by his brother Edward in reclaiming his throne five years prior. John was a widower. His first marriage had been to Blanche of Lancaster, the younger daughter of Henry of Grosmont, Duke of Lancaster. Blanche was the source of most of John's fortune. She had born him 7 children including Henry IV and Queen Philippa of Portugal. Henry IV was his fourth son, but his three older brothers died before their 4th birthday. Beyond Henry and Philippa, the only child to reach adulthood was Elizabeth whose second husband was John Holland, who was a half brother of Richard II. He was executed for conspiring against her brother.

Constance arrived in England accompanied by her brother in law Edward, and a large contingent of English and Castilian retainers. The people lined the streets to see her. She met her husband officially at Savoy Palace. Her husband claimed her father's titles in her name, though never successful.

Constance bore her husband two children, only one who reached adulthood. Her son John died at a year old. Their daughter Catherine Lancaster became Queen of Castile. She had married Henry III of Castile. Henry's father John I of Castile was half-cousins of Constance. He was the son of Henry II, the man who had murdered her father and took his throne (her half-uncle). She bore her husband three children. Her only grandchildren came from her only son John II. John was the maternal grandfather of Catherine of Aragon, as Isabella of Castile was his daughter by his second wife.

John as was common in those times had a mistress during their marriage. His was Katherine Swynford. Katherine's sister Philippa, who would eventually marry Geoffrey Chaucer, was a lady in waiting to Constance. Geoffrey and John of Gaunt were good friends, his "Book of the duchess' was written in honor of John's first wife.

Katherine had been married previously. She had three children by her first husband including a daughter Blanche named in honor of the first Duchess. John was her godfather. Katherine came into the royal household as a governess to Blanche's daughters. The couple had four children during his marriage to Constance. The couple were married in 1396 after Constance died. By that time their children were all adults, ranging from 17-23.

Their first child John Beauford, Earl of Sommerset was born 2 years after his father married Constance. John's son also named John was grandfather of Henry VII through his daughter Margaret. His daughter Joan was Queen of Scotland. John and Katherine's second son Henry became a cardinal, after serving as bishop of Winchester. Thomas was a military leader for both his half brother and his nephew Henry V in France, and died childless. Joan was married to the Earl of Westmoreland, and was a powerful northern land owner as a widow. Joan was the grandmother of Edward IV and Richard III through their mother Cecily.

John died in 1399, five years after Constance, three years after marrying Katherine and legitimizing their children. John was buried next to his first wife, Blanche at St Paul's cathedral. Blanche was the only one of his wives buried there. Katherine and her daughter Joan were buried at Lincoln Cathedral.
