Henry Fitzroy has become more well-known since Showtime’s The Tudors, but he is often the forgotten son. Henry VIII of England was so focused on having a legitimate son, much of history forgets about the Duke of Richmond and Somerset. It doesn’t help that the young duke died in 1536, when he was just 17-years-old.
However, there is another bit of history that many people forget. This illegitimate son of Henry VIII did get married. On November 25, 1533. Unfortunately, there were no children between the two of them and Mary found herself a widow after less than three years of marriage.
