Fact of the Day: Death of Prince Arthur

King Henry VII of England was known to not show much emotion (except anger) in public, but he was in utter tears and depression on the death of his eldest son Arthur. The young prince died of an unknown illness at the age of 15.

Poor King Henry! And it's crazy how young they would die back then.

Losing a kid would be horrible indeed.

And because of Arthur's death, his younger brother became King Henry VIII.

Had Arthur lived we might never have heard of Henry VIII.
