Died: DEC 1495
DEATH_AND_BURIAL: following the loss of the Battle of Mortimer's Cross against Edward, Earl of March
Welsh soldier and courtier, directly descended from The Lord Rhys but remembered because of his role in founding the Tudor dynasty and for his relationship with Catherine of Valois, widow of King Henry V of England. At some point Owain anglicised his name from the Welsh Owain ap Maredudd to Owen Tudor, taking his grandfather's name for a surname rather than the more common practice of taking his father's.
probably not married to Catherine; they had 5 children
