HENRY THE SEVENTH – AUDIOBOOK
By James Gairdner (1828 – 1912)
Henry VII, the founder of the Tudor dynasty, less known than his son, Henry VIII, or granddaughter Elizabeth I, is often overlooked. This King toppled the ruling House that had held England’s throne for over four hundred years, the Plantagenets, and took a divided, war torn country and made one of the richest in Europe by the time of his death in 1609. Henry VII’s reign was characterized by thrift, prudence, and cool-headed political strategies. The author, James Gairdner (22 March 1828 – 4 November 1912), was a British historian. He specialized in 15th-century and early Tudor history.
