Question from Guy - Total number of Henry VIII's children

How many children did Henry VIII have in total?

[Of course, depending on who you ask, this will have a range of answers - see all the previous questions regarding possible illegitimate issue of Henry VIII - Lara]

  1. Possible illegitimate children include: Thomas Stucley, John Perrot, Henry Carey, 1st Baron Hunsdon, Catherine Knollys, Ethelreda Malte and Richard Edwardes, see their Wikipedia articles for more information.

    Catherine of Aragon's Wikipedia article also mentions 5 who died as babies, and Anne Boleyn is meant to have had a stillbirth and a miscarriage.

    He had a survivng child each with his first three wives, but none with his last three wives.
