Lecture: Henry VII and the Tudor Pretenders

at Marlborough Road Methodist Church and on Zoom

Lecturer: Nathen Amin

In 1485 Henry Tudor emerged from the Battle of Bosworth victorious. His disparate army vanquished the forces of Richard III and according to Shakespeare over a century later, brought peace and ‘prosperous days’ back to England. Yet all was not well early in the Tudor reign and after three decades of conflict the kingdom was anything but settled. This talk looks at the myriad conspiracies and murky plots which sought to depose the Tudor usurper early in his reign. Just how close did the Tudors come to overthrow long before the myth of their greatness had taken hold?

Nathen Amin is the author of various books including the first full-length biography of the Beaufort family, The House of Beaufort, the Bastard Line that Captured the Throne (2017) and Henry VII and the Tudor Pretenders (2021). He is also the founder of the Henry Tudor Society and has featured discussing the Tudors on BBC radio and television, as well as in print and online media across the UK.
