OP. Arthur Tudor, whose story was probably much sadder than was previously thought.    My thoughts.  That sounds very interesting. I have never read your novels although, of course, I have heard of them.

Arthur Tudor, Prince of Wales September 1486 – 2 April was the first son of King Henry VII of England and Elizabeth of York. He predeceased his father. When Henry VII died, Arthur's younger brother, Henry, became king as King Henry VIII

Another historical biography to add to my list.

Book about Bessie Blount, mother of Henry VIIIs illegitimate son Henry Fitzroy. Thought it would be interesting since Henry VIII comes up quite a bit in my history class.
