Somerset, Edward Seymour, 1st Duke Of

Type :  


Edward Seymour, 1st Duke of Somerset, 1st Earl of Hertford, 1st Viscount Beauchamp of Hache, KG, Earl Marshal (c. 1506 – 22 January 1552) was Lord Protector of England in the period between the death of Henry VIII in 1547 and his own indictment in 1549.


 early career
Edward Seymour was born in about 1506, to Sir John Seymour and Margery Wentworth. In 1514 he got an appointment in the household of Mary Tudor.

Edward's first marriage, about 1527, to Catherine Fillol, was annulled; the reason is alleged to have been the discovery of a relationship between Catherine and Edward's father; however, this is disputed by the Dictionary of National Biography. His second marriage was before 9 March 1534 to Anne Stanhope.

Edward was the eldest brother of Jane Seymour, who would become Henry VIII's third queen consort. When Jane married the King in 1536, Seymour was created Viscount Beauchamp on 5 June, and on 15 October 1537 Earl of Hertford. He became Warden of the Scottish Marches and continued in favour after his sister's death on 24 October 1537.
