Henry adored his mother Elizabeth of York who was a kind, loyal and obedient woman. Henry was spoilt and pampered during his childhood by both his mother and his grandmother.
"We know from other sources that Henry VIII had a cold relationship with his father, but was very close to his mother. We know that the young Henry was devastated by the death of his mother." It has been reported that Henry deeply loved his mother, whom he referred to as one of the kindest, most beautiful women he’d ever known. All throughout his life, he would make mention of his beloved mother and sometimes be moved to tears over his sadness of her passing.
King Henry VIII named his daughter by Anne Boleyn after his mother - she became Queen Elizabeth I.
