Edward VI (12 October 1537 - 27 November 1590) was the only surviving son of Henry VIII by any of his six wives. Though his father had a bad reputation for the mistreatment of wives, Edward was known as a good husband and a good monarch. His wife was a moderating force on him, edging off much of the characteristic Tudor blood lust as there were very few executions during his reign. Edward was not focused on conquest, he wished to promote Protestantism throughout Europe. During the French Wars of Religion he spent much time at war, while his wife was regent. He negotiated the creation of Brittany and Aquitaine becoming new Protestant nations.
