Edmund Tudor was Margaret Beaufort's second husband, and father of her only child, Henry. Henry became Henry VII, the first Tudor monarch, so you could say that Edmund was the grandfather of the dynasty. He was born around 1430, and died in 1456, as a prisoner of the Yorkists. He was supposed to wait a few years before consummating his marriage with his child bride, Margaret. He didn't, and Margaret was only 13 when Henry Tudor was born.

February 8, 1487: Mary, Queen of Scots, executed. "I forgive you with all my heart, for now, I hope, you shall make an end to all my troubles," Mary told the executioner. His first blow missed her neck altogether. The second struck her neck, but didn't cut through -- he had to saw through to finish the job. When he held her head aloft by the hair, her wig came off and her head rolled to the ground. Then, a bloody little Skye terrier emerged from her skirts, and refused to leave his mistress.
