About Mary Tudor, Queen consort of France

some sources refer to her as Mary Rose Tudor; this is a misnomer.


"Mary Tudor (18 March 1496 – 25 June 1533) was the fifth daughter of King Henry VII of England and queen consort of France through her marriage to Louis XII. The latter was more than 30 years her senior. Following his death, which occurred less than two months after her coronation as his third wife, she married Charles Brandon, 1st Duke of Suffolk. The marriage, which was performed secretly in France, took place without her brother Henry's consent. This necessitated the intervention of Thomas Wolsey and the couple were eventually pardoned by King Henry, although they were forced to pay a large fine."
