Owen was a descendant of the Welsh Prince Rhys ap Gruffudd. Owen appeared before the Council, acquitting himself of all charges and was released.
Owen was treated well afterwards and was in the household of the King until the mids. But no one yet has found time or place of Owen Tudor's marriage with Catherine of France. He fell into the hands of the Yorkists, who beheaded him in Hereford marketplace and set up his head on the market cross. The Welsh public may have perceived this as a gesture of kindness from the Tudor Queen to the people of her ancestral country.
He was the founder of the Tudor dynasty. Legend has it that he accidentally fell onto the queen's lap during a drunken dance at court.

He went on to become a successful and influential stallion, being Leading sire in Great Britain and Ireland on six occasions. Why this happened is a mystery but the great Tudor dynasty could quite easily have been known as the Maredudds Merediths. This privilege endured after the Conquest of Wales by Edward I with the family continuing to exercise power in the name of the king of England, within Wales. There is no direct evidence for their marriage.
Jasper had one illegitimate daughter named Ellen Tudor. Henry V went to war with France and even after the English victory at Agincourt, plans for the marriage continued. However, in reality, the Tudors kept their Welsh roots at arms length. The five sovereigns of the Tudor dynasty are among the most well-known figures in Royal history.
Changing allegiances Key people bolstered Henry Tudor's army by switching sides, including Rhys ap Thomas who should've ambushed him in Wales. Katherine and Henry were married at the parish Church of St. Polydore Vergil says Owen and Queen Katherine also had a daughter who became a nun, though no other source corroborates this.
