bullet  General Notes:

Catherine of Valois (27 October 1401 \endash 3 January 1437[1]) was the queen consort of England from 1420 until 1422. A daughter of Charles VI of France, she married Henry V of England,[2] and gave birth to his heir Henry VI of England. Her liaison (and possible secret marriage) with Owen Tudor proved the springboard of that family's fortunes, eventually leading to their grandson's elevation as Henry VII of England.[3] Catherine's older sister Isabella was queen of England from 1396 until 1399, as the child bride of Richard II.


Catherine married Henry V, King of England, son of Henry IV, King of England and Mary De Bohun, on 2 Jun 1420. (Henry V, King of England was born between 1386 and 1387 in Monmouth Castle, Wales and died on 31 Aug 1422 in Château de Vincennes, France.)


Catherine next married Sir Owen Tudor, son of Maredudd ap Tudur and Margaret ferch Dafydd, after 1429. (Sir Owen Tudor was born on 16 Sep 1398 in Monmouth, Monmouthshire, Wales, died on 2 Feb 1461 in Hertfordshire, England and was buried in Greyfriars Church, Hereford, Herefordshire.)
