Best Answer

Their son, Edward, became King of England after Henry VIII died, being his only legitimate living male heir. He died soon after, at the age of 16, which led to chaos. Some of his advisors conviced the very Protestant Edward that if his oldest sister Mary, who was next in line for the throne, became queen, she would restore Catholicism to England, so they got Edward to put Jane Grey into the line of succession before he died. She famously ruled for a few days before being executed by Mary (Henry VIII's first child with his first wife Katharine of Aragon) who is better known as "Bloody Mary." After her death, Elizabeth, Henry VIII's second child by his second wife, Anne Boleyn, became Queen and led England into a very successful period.

Who were Henry Fitzory and Henry Carey?

Henry Fitzroy, Duke of Richmond (1519 - 1536) was the illegitmate son of Henry VIII and his mistress, Elzabeth Blount. He died when he was 17. Henry Fitzroy was the only acknowledged illegitimate child of Henry VIII. Henry Carey (1526 - 1596) was the child of Mary Boleyn (sister of Anne). As Mary Boleyn had been a mistress of Henry VIII, there was much speculation that this child was also Henry VIII's. But this was never acknowledged. Mary Boleyn was actually married to William Carey. During the reign of Elizabeth I, Henry Carey became Baron Hunsdon and was eventually made Lord Chamberlain. He and Elizabeth were cousins through their mothers - but it is not beyond the realms of possibility that they were actually half brother and half sister!

Who succeded Edward viii?

His elder sister Mary Tudor (Mary I). After the death of Edward VI there was a revolt agains the succession of Mary I, his sister, because she was a Catholic. A young woman, Lady Jane Grey, a grandaughter of Princess Mary Rose Tudor (Henry VIII's younger sister) was put on the throne by the rebels, led by her father in law, John Dudley, the Duke of Northumberland, who had been instrumental in persuading the dying Edward to name the Protestant Jane as his successor. This 'reign' only lasted nine days, and due to the large support amongst the people of England for Mary to be queen, as she was the natural successor, Jane and the rebels were arrested. Six months later, Jane and her husband, Guildford Dudley were executed on 12 February 1554. She would have been 17 later that year. Mary I reigned from 1553 to 1558, as the proper successor to her brother, Edward VI. When Henry VIII died in 1547, he was succeeded by his 9 year old son, Edward VI. Because of Edward's age, his uncle Edward Seymour (Duke of Somerset) made himself protector and took control. Together with Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury, Seymour was determined to make the country Protestant. An Act of Uniformity was proclaimed and a new English Prayer Book produced in 1549. There were some protests and rebellion against this, and the Earl of Warwick -John Dudley, put down the rebellions and was also involved in a power struggle with Edward Seymour, ultimately leading to Seymour's arrest and eventual execution. Dudley became the Duke of Northumberland and took control after Seymour's downfall. Edward VI was never very strong health wise, and it became apparent that he was suffering from tuberculosis and would not live very long. Northumberland seized his chance to persuade the king to name Lady Jane Grey (Northumberland's daughter in law) as his successor, as she was descended from Henry VII the first Tudor king, through her grandmother Princess Mary Rose Tudor, younger sister of Henry VIII. But more importantly she was Protestant, whereas the true successor, Mary Tudor, Henry VIII's oldest daughter, was a staunch Catholic. Edward died on 6 July 1553 and Jane Grey became queen for only 9 days, when support for Mary became overwhelmingly strong, as people wanted to see the rightful heir upon the throne. Lady Jane, her husband, father and father-in-law were all imprisoned and eventually executed under the reign of the new monarch, Mary I (1516 - 1558).
