  1. 1. But our story goes way back to… The Beginning. . .
  2. 2. House of York H THE WAR OF ROSES HOUSE OF LANCASTER A horse! My kingdom for a horse!
  3. 3. House of York House of Stuart Henry Tudor declared himself king, took Elizabeth of York, uniting the surviving houses of York and Lancaster, and acceded to the throne as Henry VII, founder of the Tudor dynasty which reigned until 1603 Elizabeth of York was the heir to the Yorkist line. Their children and grandchildren became the House of Tudor and their great grandson was the first king of England belonging to the House of Stuart , King James VI of Scotland The Tudor Rose THE WAR OF ROSES HOUSE OF LANCASTER
  4. 4. The Tudor Dynasty Henry Tudor became King Henry VII of England and Wales following the Battle of Bosworth Field. Henry's family, the Tudors, had been involved in a long and bitter war against the house of York: The War of the Roses. At Bosworth Field Henry led his men against the forces of Richard III. The Lancastrians, followers of Henry Tudor, defeated Richard, who died in the battle: Henry Tudor now became King Henry VII of England and Wales. Henry couldn't be certain that he was safe as King of England. For a hundred years the country had been torn apart by bloody conflicts and wars about who should rule. In order to make sure that he was not overthrown Henry married Elizabeth of York. Marrying Elizabeth would, Henry hoped, prevent the House of York trying to kill him as they still held some power. Henry VII faced other problems though. Not only was he fearful for himself but he had become King of a country that had no money, law and order were a problem and perhaps most worrying was the fear of a Spanish invasion. Henry's rule was successful. he ended the war of the roses through his his defeat of Richard III and marriage to Elizabeth of York. He managed to make peace with Spain, his eldest son, Arthur, married Catherine of Aragon (She married Henry VIII after Arthur died) and he brought stability, law and order back to England and Wales.
