Battlefields Trust Online Lecture: Henry VII and the Tudor pretenders

Tuesday 4th June 2024

Having emerged victorious from the Battle of Bosworth 1485 Henry Tudor and his disparate army had vanquished the forces of Richard III to take the crown. Yet all was not well early in the Tudor reign and after three decades of conflict the kingdom was anything but settled. This will be an enthralling look at the myriad conspiracies and murky plots which sought to depose Henry VII early in his reign focusing on the three pretenders whose causes were fervently advanced by Yorkist dissidents – Lambert Simnel, Perkin Warbeck and Edward, Earl of Warwick.

Nathen Amin is an experienced public speaker, author and researcher from Carmarthenshire, West Wales, who focuses on the 15th Century and the reign of Henry VII. A fellow of the Royal Historical Society, his first full-length biography of the Beaufort family, ‘The House of Beaufort’ (2017) and ‘Henry VII and the Tudor Pretenders; Simnel, Warbeck and Warwick‘ (2021) were both Amazon Bestsellers.
