The Forgotten Tewdwr/Tudor

Poor Henry VII has been lost between Richard III (Now is the Winter of Our Discontent) and Henry VIII (divorced, beheaded, died. Divorced, beheaded, survived.)

His claim to the throne, hence his over throw off Richard, can be traced back (via MSHist) to the marriage of Owen Tewdwr and the widow of Henry V, Catherine of Valois. Who was also the sister of Jehanne d’Arc’s Dauphin, Charles VII.
