Even princes have to go to school! Henry did not go to classes with other students. Instead, he had special tutors to give him lessons. Henry studied philosophy, history, religion, and foreign languages. As a boy he could speak French, Latin, and Spanish, and also studied Greek.
Henry liked to be active and was an athletic young man. He played tennis, rode horses, wrestled, and participated in jousts and other competitions. He was also musical and enjoyed playing instruments as well as singing. He even wrote some of his own songs!
