Astrology chart. Edward VI of England (1537-1553). Edward was King of England from the age of nine until his death aged fifteen from a severe lung disease (possibly tuberculosis). This woodcut chart is from the 1570 edition of 'Ephemerides novae' by the Flemish astronomer, astrologer and mathematician Johannes Stadius (c.1527-1579). The chart is divided into twelve areas and includes symbols showing zodiacal constellations and the positions of various heavenly bodies (the planets, Moon and Sun), usually as they appeared at the time of the subject's birth.
