To Bosworth and Beyond, 1483–1497

Show Summary Details


In spite of the apparent loss of confidence in the Tudors, there had been a renewed outburst of poetic effort on Henry’s behalf. They had stirred up public opinion to accept Henry as the promised ‘son of prophecy’. Henry’s claim to the throne began in the battle at Bosworth. His choice of a landing-place in Wales could hardly have been unexpected. If he had been at all perturbed about the reactions of the Welsh to his campaign, he eventually got assurance of their support as Welsh leaders sent men to support his campaign. Richard meanwhile had been preparing as he had established his headquarters at Nottingham. Henry won and was crowned at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. True to his promise of unification, he married Elizabeth of York.
