Edward VI of England

King Henry VIII died on January 28, 1547, succeeded by his son Edward VI. Edward was nine at the time.  He was the son of wife number three, Jane Seymour.

One of Edward's connections with Sir Walter Scott is that he continued the wars with Scotland that Scott referred to as "the rough wooing", which were fought over his betrothal to Mary Queen of Scots.
