This information has been carefully compiled but you are advised to double check the data with printed sources as the Museum cannot be held responsible for any errors or omissions. Please note that, for example, Edward VII is always listed with this title for cross referencing purposes even though at the time of some of his wins he was still the Prince of Wales - this applies to several individuals who inherited or were given titles in the course of their racing careers.

Perhaps his parents hoped that he would unite Britain as King Arthur had done before him? A united realm was what King Henry was constantly struggling for, and was possibly his greatest wish for his son.
