Henry VIII’s Illegitimate Children

Posted By on March 18, 2011

I’ve just written an article over at The Elizabeth Files about Elizabeth’s possible illegitimate siblings. Henry VIII recognised one illegitimate child as his – Henry Fitzroy, Duke of Richmond – but were there others he did not formally recognise?

In my article, I discuss Henry Fitzroy, Catherine and Henry Carey, John Perrot, Thomas Stukeley and Ethelreda Malte. Please do read it and let me know your thoughts.
