+Catherine (of Aragon) (b.1485 - d.1536)
Elizabeth of York gave birth to a son which was named Arthur and was heir to the English throne. The child was born several weeks early.
Catherine of Aragon finally arrived at Plymouth in preparation for her marriage to Prince Arthur after several months of travelling.
After several days of celebration and reception Prince Arthur and Catherine of Aragon were married at St. Paul's Cathedral.
Prince Arthur took up his position as governor of the Welsh Marches and moved to Ludlow Castle. He was accompanied by his wife Catherine of Aragon.
Prince Arthur fell ill at Ludlow with consumption, an illness that he seems to have suffered from a lot during his life. The illness was severe and he died.
The title of Duke of Cornwall was transferred to Prince Henry after the death of Arthur. The title is normally given to the eldest son of the reigning monarch or their sons.
