A 19th century CE illustration depicting Catherine of Valois (l. 1401 - c. 1437 CE). Catherine was the wife of Henry V of England (r. 1413-1422 CE) and mother of Henry VI of England (r. 1422-61 & 1470-71 CE). She also later married the Welsh courtier Owen Tudor (c. 1400-1461 CE) and so started the Tudor dynasty. (Engraved by W. H. Mote (1803-1871) after an illustration by J.W. Wright)
