Edmund Tudor, 1st Earl of Richmond, also known as Edmund of Hadham (1431-1456) was the father of King Henry VII of England and a member of the Tudor family of Penmynydd, North Wales. He was an older son of Owen Tudor and Catherine of Valois (widow of King Henry V of England). In 1455, he married 12 year old Margaret Beaufort. Edmund's only child, the future Henry VII, was born at Pembroke Castle in 1457, almost three months after his death.
Margaret Tudor - Daniel Mytens - 1620-38 (She was buried at the Carthusian Priory of St John in Perth (demolished during the Reformation, 1559). The Tudor dynasty ended with the childless Elizabeth I, and the line of succession to the English throne was passed through Margaret's heirs. Her great-grandson, James VI of Scotland, became James I of England, thus uniting the crowns of the two countries and conferring on Margaret something of a posthumous triumph.
Katherine Tudor, great-granddaughter of Henry VII Katheryn was the heiress to the Berain and Penymynydd estates in Denbighshire and Anglesey. She is sometimes referred to as Katheryn Tudor, her father being Tudor ap Robert Vychan and her mother Jane Velville. Her maternal grandfather Sir Roland de Velville (1474 - 6/25/1535) was thought to be an illegitimate son of King Henry VII of England by "a Breton lady".
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.
