Henry FitzRoy, 1st Duke of Richmond and Somerset (15 June 1519–23 July 1536) was the son of King Henry VIII of England and his teenage lover, Elizabeth Blount. Sometimes his father thought about naming him heir. He died in 1536, one year before his half-brother Edward VI of England was born. Elizabeth Blount was a mistress (he had an affair with her) of Henry VIII.
