“We heartily desire our executors to consider how behoofful it is to be prayed for.”

King Henry VIII was the first King of England in the House of Tudor. He ascended to the throne by defeating King Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth – the last King of England to win his throne on the battlefield. He restored power and stability to the English monarchy following the years of the Wars of the Roses and ruled for 23 years before peacefully passing on. He died suddenly at Ludlow Castle on 1502, after uttering his philosophical final words.
