Henry VIII is one of the most famous kings in British history. Henry, the second son of King Henry VII and Elizabeth of York, was born on 28 June 1491 at Greenwich Palace. He was the second Tudor monarch and was well known for his six wives. After the death of his elder brother Arthur in 1502, Henry became heir to the English throne.
