King Henry VII
By Sharon Fabian

1     King Henry VII ruled England from 1485 to 1509. During his reign, he made important decisions that helped to modernize England, or to bring it into what we call the Renaissance today. He made improvements in government and education. He also sponsored important voyages of exploration.
2     Henry Tudor became king through a dramatic event in 1485. He defeated the reigning king, Richard III, at the Battle of Bosworth. As soon as the old king was killed, the soldiers on the battlefield proclaimed Henry the new king of England. He became King Henry VII.
3     Later, back in London, his coronation was made official in a ceremony full of kingly pageantry and splendor.
4     In 1486, Henry married Elizabeth of York. This was an important move for the English monarchy, because it united Henry's family, known as Lancaster, to Elizabeth's family, known as York. At that time, royal marriages were often arranged to unite countries or parts of countries.
