Thomas Seymour, 1st Baron Seymour of Sudeley, KG (c. 1508 – 20 March 1549[1]) was the brother of the English queen Jane Seymour, the third wife of King Henry VIII and mother of King Edward VI. He is probably best known, however, for his influence in the life of the future Queen Elizabeth I.

Thomas was the son of Sir John Seymour and Margaret Wentworth. He grew up at Wulfhall, the Seymour family home, in Wiltshire, a county in southwest England (famous for the archaeological site, Stonehenge). The Seymours were a family of country gentry, who, like most holders of manorial rights, traced their ancestry to a Norman origin. To his contemporaries, he was forceful and reckless, and also, very attractive to women. Sir Nicholas Throckmorton, a boyhood friend of King Edward, described Thomas Seymour as "hardy, wise and liberal ... fierce in courage, courtly in fashion, in personage stately, in voice magnificent, but somewhat empty of matter." And though ambitious, his brother, Edward Seymour, far surpassed and out-distanced him in their rivalry over control of their nephew, Edward Tudor, and for power.[2]
