The launch of the paperback version of Nathen Amin's 'Henry VII and the Tudor Pretenders'

In 1485 Henry Tudor emerged from the Battle of Bosworth victorious. His disparate army vanquished the forces of Richard III and according to Shakespeare over a century later, brought peace and ‘prosperous days’ back to England. Yet all was not well early in the Tudor reign and after three decades of conflict the kingdom was anything but settled.

In an enthralling talk bestselling Tudor historian Nathen Amin looks at the myriad conspiracies and murky plots which sought to depose the Tudor usurper 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. Just how close did the Tudors come to overthrow long before the myth of their greatness had taken hold?

Nathen Amin Nathen Amin is an author and researcher from Carmarthenshire, West Wales, who focuses on the 15th Century and the reign of Henry VII. He wrote ‘Tudor Wales’ in 2014 and ‘York Pubs’ in 2016, followed by the first full-length biography of the Beaufort family, ‘The House of Beaufort’ in 2017, an Amazon #1 Bestseller in three historical categories. His fourth book, ‘Henry VII and the Tudor Pretenders; Simnel, Warbeck and Warwick‘, also an Amazon #1 Bestseller, was released in April 2021.
