On this day in Tudor history, 20th September 1486, King Henry VII's wife, Elizabeth of York, gave birth to the couple's first child at Winchester.

The baby was a boy and was baptised Arthur, named after the legendary King Arthur. There were high hopes for this boy and King Henry VII believed that his firstborn would be a powerful king who would bring a golden age to the country. Of course, things wouldn't go according to plan.

Find out more about Arthur Tudor, Prince of Wales, who was, of course, Catherine of Aragon's first husband, in today's talk from Claire Ridgway, founder of the Tudor Society.
