"Arthur Tudor (19 or 20 September 1486 - 2 April 1502) was the first son of King Henry VII of England and Elizabeth of York, and therefore, heir to the throne of England and Wales. As he predeceased his father, Arthur never became king. The throne was taken by his younger brother, who became King Henry VIII."
