    THE REIGN of Henry VII () has long been regarded as one of the most important in English history. His victory at Bosworth closed a period of twenty-five years in which the crown had been violently seized five times and three kings had been killed. This is a major new student edition of the text described as "the first modern classic of English history." Francis Bacon's insight into human motives, his life-long experience of politics and government, and his remarkable literary skills, render this History of the Reign of King Henry VII a major work of English literature and an important document in the history of political thought.

      King Henry VII of England (reign from August to April ) was the first King of England of the Tudor Dynasty. He had a difficult reign at times – he had to fight to gain the English throne and fight to keep it, meaning that he was often suspicious of others. Juliana Cummings explains.   In his latest book, Daring Dynasty: Custom, Conflict and Control in Early-Tudor England, historian and Tulane alumnus Mark Horowitz illuminates the legacy of the first Tudor king: Henry VII.A compilation of works derived from nearly 30 years of research, Horowitz’s book covers the reign and royal policy of Henry VII but also draws parallels between the past and present.

    Henry considered his subjects to be not only the people of England, but also the people of Scotland, Wales, and Ireland. Wales had been for the most part subdued by Henry's medieval predecessor, King Edward I, but Henry's government engaged in efforts to consolidate the small western territory into to real administrative unity with England. HENRY VI, King of England, son of King Henry V. and Catherine of Valois, was born at Windsor on the 6th of December He became King of England on the 1st of September , and a few weeks later, on the death of his grandfather Charles VI, was proclaimed king of France also.
