I added in those sundry Plantagenets, & also Owen Tudor, plus the 3 children of Henry VII & Elizabeth of York who died young, Elizabeth, Edmund, & Catherine.  Edmund & Catherine do not have their own listing, but are crammed into the same tomb with Elizabeth at Westminster:

Princess Elizabeth died on Saturday 14 September, 1495 after suffering from atrophy at the age of three years and two months. Elizabeth was brought from Eltham in state and buried on the north side of St. Edward the Confessor's Shrine in Westminster Abbey on Friday the 27th. Princess Elizabeth was the first of four of King Henry and Queen Elizabeth's children to die prematurely and they were greatly affected. The large sum of £318 (£155,479.74 in today's money) was spent on her funeral and Henry erected a small tomb to his daughter in the Abbey made from Purbeck and black marble. On top of the monument is a finely polished slab of black Lydian, upon which were placed inscriptions to Elizabeth and her effigy of copper gilt, both of which are now lost. Later, Princess Elizabeth's younger brother Prince Edmund (who died in 1500 at the age of 15 months) and her younger sister Princess Katherine (who died in 1503 shortly after birth) were also laid by her side. 

OK now "atrophy" is a weird cause of death!  Some sort of wasting disease?  Like what?  Anyone care to speculate?

But what could cause that in a 3-yr-old, I wonder?  Muscular dystrophy?  Cancer?  What?

Ise just a lil forensic detective today LOL  I found a disease called spinal muscular atrophy (& of course I clicked on the NHS link Mr Google sent me).  Tis a congenital gene mutation & sometimes can start ere the baby is even born.  I wonder if in those days they put such a thing down as "failure to thrive" & gave up?  Acuz there's not a thing to be done for it, looks like.  For Elizabeth to have died by age 3 she must've had type I or II of it.  It sez both parents must have the defective gene to pass it along & since the common ancestor between Elizabeth of York & Henry VII is....ummm....help me out here, peeps, they's all interrelated somehow....would it be as far back as Edward III?  John of Gaunt?  FA said Cicely Neville's mother was a Beaufort so mayhap him.

So it's sort of like that Tay-Sachs disease that affects infants of Jewish ancestry, methinks, you're fine if just one of you carries the gene but if you marry someone who's also a carrier, watch out.  Now I'm wondering about Edmund & Catherine.  Would that sort of thing be a genetic crapshoot where you could have healthy children & then have a few with the mutation?  Hmmm.  It's really the only thing I can find on Google regarding causes of a child with atrophy, save for something caused by a giardia infestation that causes severe diarrhea in infants, & Elizabeth was past 3.  There was another but it made them go blind & wasn't life-threatening.  There was also something about a selenium deficiency that retarded growth, but that's it for diseases that atrophy small children.

Ise clever today, huh?

Hey, didn't Queen Anne's only surviving son have to be carried around & died when he was like 10?  Lord knows how many common ancestors the Stuarts had.  Can you think of any other sickly royal offspring like that?

Tho if it does turn out to be disease with a big red glaring neon sign for DON'T BREED EVER, the only other thing I can think of that makes you waste away is cancer, so that'd be the 2nd choice, methinks.  Maybe poor little Elizabeth had a tumor somewhere inside.  Unless it was obvious, who'd notice?

OK wait, I thunk of more....polio?  Juvenile diabetes?  Is 3 too young to get Lou Gehrig's disease?

Methinks I ain't as clever a forensic detective as I thunk LOL
