  8. 8. Henry: Henry Tudor was born in1457 in Wales. His father was Edmund Tudor. At the time of his birth, England and Wales were involved in the Wars of the Roses. He belonged to the House of Lancaster, which was fighting the House of York, for control of the country. Henry’s mother Margaret was a descendant of King Edward III, which gave Henry a claim to the throne. Margaret gave her son to the care of his uncle, Jasper Tudor. When Henry was aged 14, Edward IV won power for the House of York in the Battle of Tewkesbury. Many Lancastrians died as a result of the battle. Jasper ran away with Henry to France. Claim to the English Throne: Edward IV died in 1483, and his brother Richard stole the throne making himself Richard III. Henry was now the leading Lancastrian claim to the English crown, and saw his support grow. He promised his supporters that if he became king he would marry Edward IV's daughter, Elizabeth of York; which united the two houses of York and Lancaster, who were fighting each other in the Wars of the Roses. The Battle of Bosworth: In 1485 marched across Wales and England to meet Richard III's forces at the Battle of Bosworth Field. In the battle, Richard III was killed and Henry was crowned King Henry VII at the top of Crown Hill. Parliament supported his claim to be king. Henry married Elizabeth of York, uniting the House of Lancaster and the House of York. He adopted the Tudor rose as the symbol of England ending the Wars of the Roses. They had four children: Arthur, Margaret, Henry and Mary. His wife Elizabeth died in childbirth. Keeping Power: Henry VII's grip on power was far from secure. His claim to the throne was shaky and there were lots of plots against Henry. He helped his position by treaties with France and the Netherlands that helped trade between the three countries. In 1503 he arranged the marriage of his daughter, Margaret Tudor, to James IV of Scotland in order to make peace between the two countries. Henry also arranged a marriage between his eldest son, Arthur, and the Spanish princess, Catherine of Aragon, in 1501. But in 1502 the 15-year-old Arthur Tudor died suddenly at Ludlow Castle, leaving Catherine a widow and making his younger brother, Henry, the new heir to the throne. Catherine should marry the young Henry instead, this happened in 1509. Tudor State: Henry VII improved the amount of money that the monarchy had by avoiding war, promoting trade and collecting royal taxes. This meant he was able to leave a fortune to his son, the future Henry VIII. Henry VII began the work of building a modern country. The Court of Star Chamber was set up to deal with punishing criminals. Crime was reduced in Wales and the north through the creation of special councils and more powers were given to Judges. Henry VII's laws increased the power of the King. Death: Henry VII died of Tuberculosis on 21st April 1509 and was buried at Westminster Abbey. He left a safe throne, a rich government and a united country. Henry VII was followed as king by his second son, Henry VIII.
