Synopsis

50 Things You Should Know About the Tudors by Ruper Matthews

Covering the 118 year period of Tudor rule, from 1485 until 1603, this book explores the origins of the Tudor dynasty through to its eventual demise after Elizabeth I's death. Discover how the Tudors changed the foundation of modern Britain - and how this impacted the whole world. Battlegrounds and beheadings distinguish this intriguing period in British history which included two of the strongest monarchs ever to sit on the English throne: Henry VIII and his daughter Elizabeth I. From the War of the Roses and the Princes in the Towers to Reformation and the Spanish Armada, this was a tumultuous bloody era but also one of great expansion, increased scientific knowledge, adventurous explorers and political change.
