 The Children of Henry VIII | Mary I, Elizabeth I & Edward VI.

"Although King Henry VIII of England married six times, only his first three wives bore him children, and of a probable total of eleven pregnancies between them, produced only three surviving children. The fact that these royal heirs were born to different mothers would have a direct bearing on the history of England for several decades, for old grudges and jealousies and disagreements over religion remained lively in the hearts of these siblings until death divided them."
