EVENTS

On 11 Jun 1430 Edmund Tudor 1st Earl Richmond was born to Owen Tudor (30) and Catherine of Valois Queen Consort England (28) at Much Hadham Palace(which belonged to the Bishops of London). There is speculation that the biological father was Edmund Beaufort 2nd Duke Somerset (24) with whom Catherine of Valois Queen Consort England (28) was rumoured to have had an affair. Interesting, perhaps, that he was named Edmund rather than Owen. Interesting that he took the Royal Arms of England differenced. Also interesting that his younger brother was named Jasper; a Persian name meaning 'Keeper of the Treasure.'
