  Mary Tudor
Princess Mary Tudor was born to Henry VII and Elizabeth of York on March 18, 1496 and was the youngest child of the King and Queen to live past childhood.
Mary was betrothed to Charles (the future Holy Roman Emperor), who, through his mother, was a nephew of Catherine of Aragon, with a marriage planned for May 1514.
Mary, now Queen Dowager, moved to the Palais de Cluny where she was isolated from all men (except the new King, Francis, and her confessor) for six weeks to see if she was pregnant by the late king, and if so, to ensure it was his child.
