Summary
Although the Seymours arrived with the Normans, it is with Jane, Henry VIII's third queen, and her brothers - Edward, Duke of Somerset, and Thomas, Lord Seymour of Sudeley - that they became prominent. Jane bore Henry his longed-for son, Edward VI, and both her brothers achieved prominence through her. Her brother Edward was central to Henry's activities in Scotland and become Lord Protector for the young king, his nephew, a hugely powerful position. This title tells the epic rise and fall of the family at the heart of the Tudor court and of Henry VIII's own heart; he described Jane as 'my first true wife' and left express orders to be buried next to her tomb at Windsor Castle. The family seat of Wolfhall or 'Wolf Hall' in Wiltshire is long gone, but it lives on as an icon of the Tudor age
