“The five sovereigns of the Tudor dynasty are among the most well-known figures in Royal history. Of Welsh origin, Henry VII succeeded in ending the Wars of the Roses between the houses of Lancaster and York to found the highly successful Tudor house. Henry VII, his son Henry VIII and his three children Edward VI, Mary I and Elizabeth I ruled for 118 eventful years. “During this period, England developed into one of the leading European colonial powers, with men such as Sir Walter Raleigh taking part in the conquest of the New World.
Nearer to home, campaigns in Ireland brought the country under strict English control. “Culturally and socially, the Tudor period saw many changes. The Tudor court played a prominent part in the cultural Renaissance taking place in Europe, nurturing all-round individuals such as William Shakespeare, Edmund Spenser and Cardinal Wolsey. “The Tudor period also saw the turbulence of three changes of the official religion, resulting in the martyrdom of many innocent believers of both Protestantism and Roman Catholicism.
The fear of Roman Catholicism induced by the Reformation was to last for several centuries and to play an influential role in the history of the Succession.” — The Royal Household © Crown Copyright
