The Tudors — Ferdinando Stanley, fifth Earl of Derby

Ferdinando Stanley, der fünfte Graf von Derby
Ferdinando Stanley, the fifth Earl of Derby, who according to the Last Will of the English King Henry VIII. had the right to follow the children of the latter as the next King of England, if they would not have produced any legitimate offspring

In this Last Will of Henry VIII.'s Ferdinando's relative, James VI., the King of Scotland, had expressly been excluded as a descendant of Margaret Tudor and her first husband, the Scottish King James IV., to ascend the throne of England. Therefore Ferdinando Stanley and his younger brother William had more rights to follow Elizabeth I. as the new King of England than James VI. of Scotland had.
