Edmund Tudor (Edmwnd Tudur in Welsh) was born either at Much Hadham Palace in Hertfordshire or at Hadham in Bedfordshire. He was the older son of Owen Tudor and the dowager queen, Catherine of Valois. In 1452, Edmund and Jasper Tudor were formally brought into the royal family and were made earls: Edmund the Earl of Richmond and Jasper the Earl of Pembroke. Their other brother Owen was already a monk at Westminster Abbey. The new earls were given precedent over all the other nobles of the realm save the dukes and the King and Queen. Along with the titles came estates and revenues, as well as the potential of noble brides. In March 1453, Edmund and Jasper were given joint custody of Margaret Beaufort, heiress of the Duke of Somerset. After Margaret’s first marriage to John de la Pole was annulled, Henry VI made arrangements for his half brother to marry her. They married on 1 November 1455 at Bletsoe Castle. Edmund was captured by the Yorkist supporter William Herbert though in mid-1456, who imprisoned him at Carmarthen Castle in South Wales, he died there of the plague on 3 November 1456, leaving his thirteen year old widow pregnant with his child. He was buried at Carmarthen Grey Friars. At the dissolution of the monasteries in 1539, his remains were removed to the choir of St David’s Cathedral. Margaret Beaufort sought protection from her brother-in-law Jasper Tudor. Edmund’s posthumous child, Henry, Earl of Richmond, the future Henry VII, was born at Pembroke Castle, almost three months after his death.
It’s a cute little thing though.
Sometimes it is hard to remember that owls are incredibly dangerous predators seen by cultures throughout the world as ill omens. Especially when they look like toasted marshmallows.
My boss once described them as flying pillows filled with seething hatred.
Further confirming that owls are the avian equivalent of cats.
My favourite animals are cats and owls, I like evil animals

"Bien," the Queen Dowager spoke, smiling at the child. "Remember, if you need anything, you should never hesitate to ask me."
