Tudor England, by S. T.  Bindoff

Tudor England, by S. T. Bindoff


From the victory of Henry Tudor over Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485, to the death of Elizabeth in 1603, the Tudor dynasty dominated life in Britain for over 100 years.

Tudor England tells the story of the Tudors, from the accession of Henry VII and the crisis over the succession and papal supremacy under the flamboyant Henry VIII to the religious revolution and counter-revolution under Edward VI and Mary and the dawn of Elizabethan Protestant England.

But Tudor England also provides a portrait of 16th Century England as a living and growing society, laying the stress on social, commercial and institutional developments, and showing how the turbulent Tudor period laid the foundations of modern Britain.

Stanley Thomas Bindoff (1908–1980) was an English historian who specialised in the Tudor and Elizabethan periods.
