Facts and Events
Elizabeth Seymour (c. 1518 – bef. 9 June 1563) was one of nine children, born at Wulfhall, Savernake, Wiltshire, to Sir John Seymour and Margery Wentworth. She was sister to Jane Seymour, third Queen Consort of Henry VIII, and aunt to Edward VI. Elizabeth and Jane served as maids of honour to Henry's second wife, Anne Boleyn, their second cousin. The Seymours gained wealth and power as Henry's attentions turned to Jane. On 30 May 1536, eleven days after Anne's execution, Henry and Jane were married. Elizabeth was chief lady-in-waiting to Jane, who died twelve days after giving birth to Edward VI in 1537.
