Henry Tudor was born on June 28, 1491 in Greenwich Palace. Since he was the second son, not expected to become King, we don't know much about him until the death of his brother, Aurthur who left behind his wife Catherine. She signed a treaty that she would marry the next heir to the throne, Prince Henry. The marriage did not occur because Henry's father had been slow to pay his part and her parents were refusing to pay their portion. This continued until Henry VII died and Henry VIII emerged.
