Henry VII and Elizabeth of York, the parents of Henry VIII, had an extraordinary marriage: politically, strategically and personally. It was an alliance that both cemented the power of the Tudor dynasty and made their younger son, Henry, the King of England. Leading Tudor historian Nathen Amin explores this remarkable union from their background and their marriage in 1486 to the crowning of Elizabeth in 1487. And from the raising of their children to the tragic demise of eldest son Arthur in 1502 and the profound grief of Henry VII after Elizabeth’s death a year later. In a compelling new talk he reveals the extraordinary legacy of their marriage which marked both the end of the Wars of the Roses, with the accession of ‘rose both red and white’ Henry VIII, and the making of the Tudor dynasty.
