When Henry’s son, Henry VIII, ascended the throne in , it marked England’s first uncontested transfer of power in almost 90 years. This fact alone is a testament to Henry’s achievements. In this audiobook, we will discover the story of how Henry VII became the last English king to win his crown on the battlefield and by doing so.

    Henry VIII was the king of England. Throughout the early part of Henry's reign, England was part of an undivided Western Christendom. There was one single Church, and the Pope stood at its head.   King Henry VII had nothing to do with any church debate! Maybe that's why you can't find it in your book. You're looking under the wrong Henry. Henry VIII was the one who wanted to divorce his first wife (only first and fourth, not all of them). I think you have completely misunderstood the entire story.

    There is no reason to doubt that the substance of the book was really Henry's. Pope Leo X was highly pleased with it and conferred upon the king the title of Fidei Defensor (Defender of the Faith), which is maintained to this day as part of the royal style of the English Crown.   A new book on Henry VII is a major event. The last full-length study of the king and his reign, by S. B. Chrimes, was written in , in a very different historiographical world. At that time, the explosion of interest in later-medieval history was still in its infancy, and the decades after were seen mainly through the lens of the 'Tudor.
