Henry Stuart, Prince of Wales, was a prince of global vision. Though he never saw the sea until he was 10 years old, when he was given a ship in 1603, it was love at first sight. Hailed as “Protector of Virginia,” Henry invested in the 1607 expedition of the Susan Constant, Godspeed, and Discovery. The Jamestown voyage established the first permanent British settlement in America. Henry planned to sail to the New World to help establish and grow the fledgling colony. Renowned Scottish author and historian Sarah Fraser thinks history would have been very different had he lived past the age of 18.
