Arthur Tudor, Prince of Wales, 1486–1502 (English royal)

* Arthur Tudor was the first son of King Henry VII of England and Elizabeth of York. He died suddenly, at age fifteen. When Henry VII later died, Arthur's younger brother, Henry, became king as King Henry VIII.

The times of birth of Arthur and his sister, Margaret (see her chart), were recorded in the Beaufort Book of Hours, a family chronicle inherited by Henry VIII’s grandmother, Lady Margaret Beaufort. While the date of birth of the future Henry VIII was recorded in the book, his time of birth was not recorded, because he was the third born of Henry VII's children and thus he did not rank highly enough.

According to the Book, "in the morning afore one of the clock after midnight was born Prince Arthur at Winchester."
