In today's Claire Chats I continue my series on those said to be illegitimate children with a look at Henry Fitzroy, Duke of Richmond and Somerset, who Henry VIII did acknowledge as his son, and his half-sister (or maybe sister) Elizabeth Tailboys.
Here are the links I mention in my video:
- 26 November 1533 - The Wedding of Henry Fitzroy and Mary Howard
- Was Elizabeth Tailboys the daughter of Henry VIII?
I also recommend Elizabeth Norton's book Bessie Blount and also Beverley Murphy's book on Henry Fitzroy Bastard Prince: Henry VIII's Lost Son.
