Tudor monarchs have consistently attracted more popular and scholarly attention than any other royal dynasty in British history. The peculiar origins of the Tudor family and the improbable saga of their rise and fall and rise again in the centuries before the Battle of Bosworth have, however, received far less attention. Based on both published and manuscript sources from Britain and France, The Making of the Tudor Dynasty sets the record straight by providing the only coherent and authoritative account of the ancestors of the Tudor royal family from their beginnings in North Wales at the start of the 13th century, through royal English and French connections in the 15th century, to Henry Tudor's victory at Bosworth Field in 1485.
