The Right Honourable John Kenneth Tudor, 1st Viscount Tudor GK CM EC (born 31 July 1940), was the 20th Prime Minister of Guelphia, serving from March 1992 until March 2000.

Early life and education

John Kenneth Tudor was born in Shepton on the 31 July 1940, the son of Henry and Elizabeth Tudor. The Tudor's owned a small piggery and potato farm on the outskirts of Shepton, but economic pressures forced them off the land in 1956. The family relocated to Earnestvale where John's father was able to get work in a railway warehouse.

Tudor was schooled at Earnestvale Railway Primary School and then Kingsbury Boys School from 1946 to 1958. In 1959, he was accepted to read Law at the University College Kingsbury, and graduated with honours in 1964.

Legal career

Tudor returned to Shepton as a solicitor in 1966 and was employed by the firm Cameron Kensitt. After ten years of service and additional study, Tudor was called to the bar as a barrister in 1977. A year later he founded his own legal practice - Tudor, Wright, and Turner in Shepton and Kingsbury.
