Edmund de la Pole, Earl of Suffolk, is executed. A potential
claimant to the English throne due to his Plantegenet ancestry, he
had been attainted in 1504 after he attempted to gather an army for
an invasion. Henry VII had taken him prisoner from Philip of
Burgundy on the understanding that he would guarantee his safety,
but Henry VIII did not feel bound to this agreement, anxious at the
threat he might pose while the king was out of the country
campaigning in France.
