Principal residence of the Henry VII, it was known as "Palace Placentia" or "Palace of Pleasurance" since the time of Queen Margaret of Anjou. Three Tudor monarchs were born at Greenwich: Henry VIII, Mary I and Elizabeth I. Prince Arthur and Edmund were also born at Greenwich. First built in 1427, Henry VII added his own structure which no longer stands that is now occupied by the Royal Naval College. Since late 2005 exciting archaeological excavation has taken place and experts have discovered the foundations of the original Tudor Chapel and Vestry.
