Who were the Tudors?

Kings and queens in the Tudor family ruled England from 1485-1603 . Both King Henry VIII and Elizabeth I belonged to the Tudor family.

During the time that the Tudor kings and queens reigned, a lot was happening in England. People were discovering more about the world through exploration, the Church of England was founded, England got a good reputation for having a strong Navy, more people were able to go to school and learn lots of different things, and art and music became an important part of culture.

Top 10 facts

  • There were six Tudor monarchs (kings and queens).
  • The first Tudor monarch was King Henry VII who was crowned in 1485, and the last was Queen Elizabeth I who ruled from 1558 to 1603.
  • Because Elizabeth I didn’t have any children, when she died in 1603 her cousin James I became king, uniting England and Scotland and starting a new royal family – the Stuarts.
  • Religion was very important in Tudor times . Everyone had to go to church, and it was best if you went to the same sorts of churches that the king or queen did.
  • If you were a Catholic when Henry VIII was king, or a Protestant when Mary I was Queen, you might get arrested, thrown into the Tower of London, or even executed!
  • Mary I had over 280 people put to death because of their religion (she was Catholic), so she got the nickname ‘Bloody Mary’.
  • It wasn’t all bad in Tudor times, though. Music and dances were very popular, and people practised their instruments so they could become good enough to play in the royal court.
  • Music was enjoyed by everyone, no matter which class they came from – gentlemen, citizens of the cities, yeomen of the countryside, and the poor.
  • Theatres were also very popular in Tudor times, which is how William Shakespeare got to be so famous for the plays he wrote. Both rich and poor people went to the theatre.
  • Executions and punishments were another form of entertainment in Tudor times. Lots of people would gather to see someone burned at the stake or beheaded, which doesn’t sound very fun today!
  • 1455-1485 The War of the Roses took place between the houses of York and Lancaster
  • 22 August 1485 Henry Tudor won the Battle of Bosworth Field, which ends the War of the Roses. He also declares himself king from this date
  • 28 June 1491 Henry VIII was born at Greenwich Palace
  • 21 April 1509 Henry VII died
  • 24 June 1509 Henry VIII was crowned king
  • 18 February 1516 Mary I was born in Greenwich
  • 7 September 1533 Elizabeth I was born in Greenwich
  • 12 October 1537 Edward VI was born at Hampton Court Palace
  • 28 January 1547 Henry VIII died
  • 20 February 1547 Edward VI was crowned king
  • 6 July 1553 Edward VI died
  • 10 July 1553 Lady Jane Grey became queen, as Edward VI wanted
  • 19 July 1553 Mary I was proclaimed Queen instead of Lady Jane Grey
  • 1 October 1553 Mary was officially crowned Queen
  • 12 February 1554 Lady Jane Grey was executed
  • 17 November 1558 Mary I died at St. James’s Palace
  • 15 January 1559 Elizabeth I was crowned queen
  • 24 March 1603 Elizabeth I died
  • 29 July 1567 Elizabeth’s cousin, James VI of Scotland, was crowned king – he is also known as James I of England; this ended the Tudor family line, as James belonged to the House of Stuart

Did you know?

  • People in Tudor times ate their main meal in the middle of the day – around when we’d eat lunch. Their main meal could last for three hours!
  • People baked by putting food in an iron box, and placing it on an open fire.
  • In Tudor times, meat was cooked on a spit – it could be turned around and around over the fire so the meat cooked on all sides.
  • People used honey to sweeten food instead of sugar.
  • Children who were naughty at school would be beaten with a cane – boys from rich families would sometimes pay for another boy to get beaten instead. Imagine having that job!
  • If people felt sick, they wouldn’t take the medicines that we take today. Some of the cures they used sound funny to us now – for example, bald people thought they could grow hair if they used a shampoo made from crushed beetles!
  • Tudor towns and villages weren’t very clean. People threw rubbish in the street, and even emptied the loo there! It was very smelly.
  • People didn’t usually live to be older than age 35 in Tudor times.
  • Ships built in Tudor times were called galleons.
  • The Tudor monarch with the shortest rule was Lady Jane Grey – she was Queen for just nine days! She was in the Tower of London the whole time.

Can you find all the following in the gallery below?

  • A model of an English galleon, and what it would have looked like inside:

primary homework help tudor timeline

The Tudors became royalty after winning the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485, which ended the War of the Roses between the House of Lancaster and the House of York. Henry Tudor led the fight on the Lancaster side, and then married Elizabeth of York.

The civil war between the House of Lancaster and the House of York was called the War of the Roses because each side had a certain colour of rose to represent them – red for Lancaster and white for York. The Tudor rose is both red and white, symbolising that the two houses were joined together.

While Henry VIII  wanted his daughter Mary to become queen after his son Edward VI, Edward decided on his deathbed that he wanted Lady Jane Grey to rule instead because she was Protestant, like him. Mary was a Catholic. Jane Grey did become queen, but only for nine days, and she was never officially crowned – Mary became queen instead, and had Jane executed.

The kings and queens in Tudor times were very involved in religious matters. Everybody had to go to church, and whether you were Catholic or Protestant was very important. It sometimes meant the difference between life and death!

Henry VIII set up the Protestant Church of England , which meant England broke ties with the Catholic church. This also meant that Catholics weren’t very popular in England – some were even put to death. But, when Mary I became Queen it was the other way around – her mum, Catherine of Aragon, was Catholic and Mary was Catholic too. She had over 280 people put to death because of their religion, which gave her the nickname ‘Bloody Mary’.

After Mary, Elizabeth I (a Protestant) became Queen.

Some of the games played in Tudor times are games we still play today, such as bowls and tennis. The version of tennis played by Tudors was called ‘paume’.

A lot of what we know about what people would have had in their homes during Tudor times is from inventories, which are lists of possessions that people had when they died.

Music was very popular in Tudor times, and it was a large part of entertainment both in the royal court as well as for the peasants. It also meant that somebody from any class – rich or poor – who was good enough at an instrument could have the chance to play for the king or queen! Musical instruments played include the viol, hautboy, harpsichord, spinet and virginals.

According to someone who lived during Tudor times, William Harrison, there were four different classes in society:

  • gentlemen (nobles and professionals)
  • citizens of the cities (people who were free, not slaves, and who had special rights)
  • yeomen of the countryside (people who were free, not slaves, and could run cities and farms in the country)
  • poor (slaves, farm workers, and vagrants who didn’t have a home and lived on the streets)

School could be expensive, so only people who could pay for it would send their children. At grammar school, they’d learn maths, Latin and Greek, and about religion. Only boys went to school, though sometimes girls from rich families would have tutors. When Edward VI was king, some schools were set up that didn’t cost anything so more people were able to be educated.

Jobs that people would have had in Tudor times include being a butcher, baker, weaver, fishmonger (catching and selling fish), tailor, blacksmith, shoemaker and washerwoman. There were different kinds of jobs in the royal court that involved serving the king or queen, such as being a page or a lady in waiting.

If you did something wrong and broke the law in Tudor times, you could get a pretty harsh punishment . If any of these happened to you, you’d been let off easy: whipping, being branded with a hot iron, and being locked in between bits of wood in the centre of town for people to laugh at you. The worst punishments were executions, such as beheading, being hung, being burned at the stake, or being boiled alive. Executions were public events that lots of people would come to watch.

Names to know:

King Henry VII (1457-1509) – Henry VIII was the first Tudor king, and ruled from 1485-1509. He won the Battle of Bosworth Field, which ended the War of the Roses.

King Henry VIII (1491-1547) – King Henry VIII ruled from 1509-1547. Find out more about him here.  //crosslink//

King Edward VI (1537-1553) – King Edward VI ruled from 1547-1553. He was only nine when he became king, and he died at age 15 from a disease in his lungs. He wanted Lady Jane Grey to become Queen next instead of his older sister, Mary, because Jane was a Protestant like Edward.

Lady Jane Grey (1536 or 1537-1554) – Lady Jane Grey was Queen from 10-19 July in 1553. Even though she was legally Queen because King Edward VI had made it so, Edward’s sister Mary took over the throne and eventually had Jane executed. In fact, Jane had been locked in the Tower of London during the nine days she was Queen.

Mary I (1516-1558) – Mary I was Queen from 1553-1558. She was a devout Catholic and was very strict about people following the same faith – so strict, that she’d have Protestants executed. She was called ‘Bloody Mary’ because of this. Mary married King Philip II from Spain, and they didn’t have any children.

Queen Elizabeth I (1533-1603) – Queen Elizabeth I ruled from 1558-1603.

The Tudors primary resource

Explore the influence of the monarchy during tudor times, from henry viii to elizabeth i.

This primary resource explores significant social changes in Britain during the time of the Tudors, presented as an easy-to-read comic. Discover the influence of the monarchy during this time, from Henry VIII to Elizabeth I. What happened to Henry VIII’s wives? How did Christianity change in Britain during this time?

Pupils will learn about social, cultural and religious changes during the time of the Tudors and how they have affected life in Britain today, using our National Geographic Kids’ Tudors primary resource sheet.

The teaching resource can be used in study group tasks for a simple explanation of significant events during Tudor times, as a printed handout for each pupil to read themselves, or for display on the interactive whiteboard, as part of a whole class reading exercise.

Activity: Ask the children to select one of the key characters from the comic to conduct a case study on. Pupils could write a newspaper article about Henry VIII’s destruction of the Catholic Church, or reporting his death with reference to his six wives. They could carry out their own research on the Spanish Armada and how Elizabeth I reacted to the attempted invasion.

The Tudors for kids KS2 learning at Primary School. Homework help on the history of the Tudors, Tudor Britain and Henry VIII.

Time: 1485AD - 1603AD

Who were the Tudors?

The Tudors are one of the most famous families ever to rule England. They were in power from 1485 when Henry Tudor was crowned King Henry VII, until the time Queen Elizabeth I died, without an heir, in 1603. The Tudors were some of the most colourful people in history.

Tudor Kings and Queens

There were six Tudor Kings and Queens.

  • Henry VII - 1485-1509
  • Henry VIII - 1509-1547
  • Edward VI - 1547-1553
  • Jane Grey - July 1553
  • Mary I - 1553-1558
  • Elizabeth I - 1558-1603

Horrible Histories - Terrible Tudors

Tudors video

He had six wives:

  • Catherine of Aragon - Catherine had a daughter with Henry, but no son so Henry divorced her.
  • Anne Boleyn - Anne had a daughter (who would be Queen Elizabeth I) with Henry, but Henry turned against his wife and had her head chopped off.
  • Jane Seymour - They had a son, Edward (who was the next King) but she died two weeks after he was born.
  • Anne of Cleves - Henry divorced Anne after only six months.
  • Catherine Howard - Catherine was only 19 when they married. Henry had her head chopped off.
  • Katherine Parr - She looked after Henry's children.

Elizabeth I

Elizabeth I

Elizabeth had a quick temper and liked to get her own way. She liked to live in fine palaces in London and it was an exciting time when she ruled. There were a lot of new discoveries during her time and many English explorers sailed off to find new lands.

Unlike Henry VIII, Elizabeth I never married and as she grew older people wondered who would be next Tudor to take over. So when she died on 24th March 1603, the Tudor period ended and the next in line to the throne was James VI of Scotland who became King and started the Stuarts period.

Tudor Britain

Although Elizabethan England was very rich, there were many poor people who had to beg for a living. In 1563 a Poor Law was passed so that money could be raised for the less fortunate ones.

Sir Walter Raleigh

Sir Walter Raleigh

He had many expeditions across the Atlantic to America. From one trip he brought back potatoes and tobacco to Europe, two things that were not known of at that time.

Sir Francis Drake

The Spanish Armada

How did the spanish armada start.

In 1588 King Philip II of Spain, angry that the English were raiding Spanish ships and stealing their treasures, sent a fleet of ships (The Spanish Armada), to invade England. They planned to sail to the Netherlands to join with an army, but while sailing through the English Channel, they were attacked by English warships. Fierce sea battles took place and during one night, while the Spanish ships were anchored near France, the English sent eight ships that had been set on fire, into the middle of the Spanish ships. The Spanish panicked and scattered all over the place.

The next day battle raged all day but the English, in the end, won.

What happened to the Spanish Armada?

Having been blown north around Scotland and Ireland, most of the Spanish ships were wrecked in terrible storms.

Tudor Timeline For Homework Help


The Tudors are a fascinating topic, with Tudor monarchs among most famous of all of England's Kings and Queens.

One of the most common tasks for kids while they are studying the Tudors, is to create a 'Tudor timeline' project to help them understand when important events happened. Here, we've listed in chronological order who reigned when, who fought who, and in exactly which order Henry VIII married his wives!

Once you're done, make sure to check out more about the Tudors here!

Tudor Timeline

1485: The Battle of Bosworth

The battle between King Richard III (found buried under a car park in Leicester in 2012), and Henry Tudor, 2nd Earl of Richmond, ended in Richard's death. Henry became King Henry VII and so began the Tudor monarchy.

28 June 1491: Birth of Henry VIII

Henry VIII was born at Greenwich Palace. He was the third child of Henry VII and Elizabeth of York and was headed for a place in the church, as his elder brother Arthur was heir to the throne.

1492: Christopher Columbus 'discovers' the West Indies.

Did you know he was actually looking for China when he landed on the Bahamas? He and his crew then encountered the native people who lived there. They traded spears, beads and parrots with them. On later visits, he made slaves of the natives and forced them to look for gold for him.

2 April 1502: Arthur, Prince of Wales dies

Henry, who was handsome and charismatic, not only took his dead brother's place in line for the crown, becoming Henry VIII, but he married his widow as well! He was just 17. Henry was exceptionally tall, at over 6ft. He loved to joust and hunt, compose music and throw huge, extravagant parties.

21 April 1509: Henry VII dies

The court kept Henry VII's death a secret until his son Henry was declared King Henry VIII two days later.

11 June 1509: Henry VIII marries Catherine of Aragon.

Catherine of Aragon was a Spanish princess and an ambassador for the Spanish Court in England. She was the first-ever female ambassador in Europe.

1510: The Mary Rose is built.

This warship was the flagship in Henry VIII's fleet.

1516: Catherine of Aragon gives birth to Mary.

Mary had a long wait to be queen and at one stage was made lady-in-waiting to her younger sister Elizabeth. She took the throne in 1553 and earned the nickname Bloody Mary , because of her persecution of Protestants.

1533: Henry marries Anne Boleyn.

To marry Anne, who was a lady-in-waiting to his wife Catherine of Aragon, Henry had to break from the Catholic Church. He formed a new church (the Church of England) and divorced his first wife Catherine of Aragon.

1533: Elizabeth Tudor is born.

Anne Boleyn gives birth to her daughter, who had red hair like her father's. Elizabeth is destined to be one of England's greatest rulers, reigning for 44 years in what came to be known as 'The Golden Age'.

1534: Henry VIII is named ‘Supreme Head of the Church of England’.

This marked the beginning of the English Reformation.

19 May 1536: Anne Boleyn is executed and Henry marries Jane Seymour.

Henry's marriage to Anne Boleyn wasn't recognised by France and the Holy Roman empire, and besides, she hadn't given him a son! Henry had her beheaded for adultery and treason (although modern historians doubt she was guilty). A French swordsman was brought to England to cut off her head, supposedly to make a quick clean job of it!

1536–1539: England's monasteries are destroyed or closed down.

This was known as the dissolution of the monasteries. Because Henry had argued with the Catholic Church he seized their property. He also needed money to fund the wars with Scotland and France. More than 800 monasteries disappeared.

30 May 1536: Henry marries Jane Seymour

Henry and Jane Seymour were engaged the day after Anne Boleyn's execution, and married 10 days later!

12 October 1537: Birth of Edward VI

Jane finally gave Henry the son and heir he had been waiting for, Prince Edward, who would become Edward VI, but she died 12 days later.

1539: The Great Bible is produced

Following the break with the Catholic Church, a new bible written in English was produced, replacing the old ones, which only the clergy could read.

1540: Henry marries Anne of Cleves.

She doesn't last long as queen. Henry has a busy year. He divorces Queen Anne in the same year, marries Catherine Howard and finishes building Hampton Court Palace.

1542: Mary Stuart becomes Queen of Scotland

Often called Mary Queen of Scots ,  she reigned over Scotland until 1567.

1543: Henry marries Catherine Parr.

1544: Henry VIII invades France.

1545: The Mary Rose sinks in Portsmouth.

The warship sunk in the Solent on 19 July 1545. Only 35 of her 400-strong crew survived. In 1982 the wreck was raised, and 60 million people watched the event live on TV. You can see it at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

Henry died at 55 and is buried in  St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. His son, who became Edward VI, died in 1553, at the age of 15.
