Prince Arthur of Wales

Born on the 20th September 1486 was Arthur, Prince of Wales, the boy on whom all Henry VII's hopes and dreams were pinned.

So important was it to Henry that Elizabeth give birth in the Hampshire town of Winchester, that he risked both their lives by rushing to get them there. This journey caused Elizabeth to give birth early, fortunately the queen delivered a healthy baby boy at St. Swithun’s Priory 

“afore one o’clock after midnight.”
