This blog was an idea that I had quite some time ago. There are almost no blogs dedicated to Henry VII, despite his being the founding King of England’s most enduringly popular ruling Dynasties. There are hundreds of blogs about his successor, and his successor’s infernal multitude of wives. There is a goliath of an organisation dedicated to his immediate predecessor; so why not Henry VII? He was a fascinating man. From penniless exile; to King of England is an interesting journey in anyone’s books. So why not take a closer look? It could even be interesting!
