Mary Tudor, Henry VIII's younger sister was known as one of the most beautiful princesses in Europe. She also had the trademark red hair of the Tudors. When she married the King of France, the Ambassador from Venice described her as " a Paradise - tall, slender, grey-eyed, possessing an extreme pallor". She wore her glorious silken red-gold hair flowing loose to her waist. She and her brother Henry were close as children, and he named his daughter Mary after her.
