Mary Rose The Mary Rose was King Henry VIII's favourite warship and he named the ship after his sister. The ship was built in 1509, the year Henry VIII came to the throne It is not known exactly what happened to cause the sinking of the ship, but one theory suggests that the crew fired the guns on one side of the ship and were turning the ship to fire the guns on the other side. Unfortunately, they failed to close the gun ports and a combination of this and the wind caused the ship to tilt, fill with water and sink.
