INTRODUCTION

 

I decided to write this essay, because, I am really interested in

English history. The five sovereigns of the Tudor dynasty are among the

most well-known figures in Royal history. Of Welsh origin, Henry VII

succeeded in ending the Wars of the Roses between the houses of

Lancaster and York to found the highly successful Tudor house. He was

succeeded by Henry VIII, who is famous for his six wives. This dynasty

ruled in Britain for 118 eventful years.

 

Henry VIII was followed to the throne by his children HYPERLINK

"EdwardVI.html" Edward VI , HYPERLINK "MaryI.html" Mary I , and

HYPERLINK "ElizabethI.html" Elizabeth I . (Another Tudor descendant,

HYPERLINK "JaneGrey.html" Jane Grey , was put on the throne after Edward

VI's death but was overthrown after only nine days.) They increased the

influence of the monarchy, established the Church of England, and made

England a world power.

 

When Elizabeth I died in 1603, the Tudor dynasty ended. But the

were descended from Owen Tudor. Even the modern royal HYPERLINK

"../Windsor/index.html" Windsor family can trace its ancestry back to

the handsome Welsh squire who married Queen Catherine of Valois.

The founding of dynasty

 

The founder of the royal Tudor dynasty was Henry VII's grandfather Owen

Tudor, a well-born Welsh man who served as a squire of the body to

England's King Henry V. The king died in 1422 and some years later his

widow, Catherine of Valois, is said to have married the handsome Tudor,

although it is possible they were never legally married.

 

Henry V was succeeded by his infant son, Henry VI. The new king (who

became insane as an adult) was little more than a pawn in the so-called

Wars of the Roses, a series of power struggles between the ruling House

of Lancaster and the rival House of York. Owen Tudor was a staunch

supporter of the king. In 1461 Tudor led an army into battle against
