DESCRIPTION: The story of the King who ended the Wars of the Roses and marked 
the transition from the Medieval Period to the Renaissance and the elevation of 
England as a major power. The story of Henry Tudor is one of twists and turns 
worthy of a best-selling novel, a real page turner –  Recommended.

Following the death of William I, England was almost continuously engaged in civil 
wars and war with France. The two rival Houses of York and Lancaster concluded this 
period of internal conflict with Henry Tudor making himself King after his defeat of 
Richard III at Bosworth Field. To that point, his life had been in danger almost 
continuously. From that point a period of virtual peace was maintained. Conflict with 
France continued, by at home the English could set about the rebuilding of society.

Henry maintained relative peace by a strategic marriage to Elizabeth Woodville from 
the opposing House. There would be attempts periodically to unseat him but the 
country was no longer subject to roving bands of soldiers. The marriage turned into a 
love match and both loyally supported the other.

This is a very interesting period of English history and although the House of Tudor 
only produced two Kings and two Queens, it marked the break between the Medieval 
society and the Renaissance when England flowered, became Britain and set out to 
form the greatest empire in history, a major feat for such a small nation, bounded by 
enemies.
