Henry VII is one of my favorite Kings. He was a good king who brought peace to England and governed well. Wanting to fine instead of execute is also a plus in my book. How such a same rational man with his sweet same rational wife could produce a psycho like Henry VIII is beyond me.
Also I think H7 was much better looking than his son who even when he was young looked like a bloated frat boy.

Better looking!!! He had a squint.
Anyhoo, can I recommend this book;
" Winter King, Dawn of Tudor England" by Thomas Penn.
I have read that there is a field of thought that Henry Tudor/Tydier/Tydderr was possibly NOT a "Tudor" at all !!! If anyone is interested I will find and post the info I have. I think I read it in John Ashdown Hill's book.
Oh and I don't think Henry's dealings with the supposedly "half - witted" Earl of Warwick was very magnanimous.
