"I witnessed a great number of excellent concerts in the royal court of King Henry VII."
Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington[src]

Henry VII (28 January 145721 April 1509) was King of England from his seizure of the crown in 1485 until his death.[2]

He was the father of King Henry VIII and the grandfather of Queens Mary I and Elizabeth I.[2]

Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington was a wizard at King Henry's royal court.[3][4]


The name "Henry" comes from the Germanic name Heimirich which meant "home ruler", composed of the elements heim "home" and ric "power, ruler". It was later commonly spelled Heinrich, with the spelling altered due to the influence of other Germanic names like Haganrich, in which the first element is hagan "enclosure".

Notes and references

  1. Mary I, Queen of England, was a witch. This means that she has to have a magical ancestor somewhere in her line, possibly her great-grandmother, Margaret Beaufort, who claimed to have "visions" from god; these "visions" may be because she was an unknown seer, possibly making Henry a squib.
