Henry VII’s New Men and the Making of Tudor England

Cite Embed

The reign of Henry VII is important but mysterious. He ended the Wars of the Roses and laid the foundations for the strong governments of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I. Yet his style of rule was unconventional and at times oppressive. At the heart of his regime stood his new men, low-born ministers with legal, financial, political, and military skills who enforced the king’s will and in the process built their own careers and their families’ fortunes.
