    In this week’s Quiz, the question on Catherine Valois being the mother of Edmund, Jasper, Owen Tudor and Henry VI- did she have a son named Owen that died?
    I know Owen Tudor was her husband, but wasn’t aware that she had other sons.

      Catherine and Owen Tudor had four children: Edmund, Jasper, Owen (named after his father) and a daughter who was born shortly before Catherine’s death and who is thought to have become a nun and died young. We don’t know Owen’s birthdate, but Toni Mount states that he was “a novice monk: he entered the Benedictine Order and spent his life at Westminster Abbey”.
