The Tudor Age began in August 1485 when Henry Tudor landed with a small force at Milford Haven intent on snatching the English throne from Richard III. For more than a hundred years England was to be dominated by the personalities of the fi ve Tudor monarchs, ranging from the brilliance and brutality of Henry VIII to the shrewdness and vanity of the virgin queen, Elizabeth I.

Review:

Up-to-date, readable and reliable. The best introduction to England's most important dynasty' (DAVID STARKEY)

'Magnificent' (HISTORY TODAY)

'A lively overview... Rex is a wry commentator on the game on monarchy' (THE GUARDIAN)

'Vivid, entertaining and carrying its learning lightly, Richard Rex's The Tudors is, quite simply the best short introduction to the most formative century in English history' (EAMON DUFFY)

'The story is gripping and told with enviable narrative skill - a delight for any reader' (TIMES HIGHER EDUCATIONAL SUPPLEMENT)

'One underestimated feature of English culture is its popular history, written by those who carry learning lightly and manage to convey a real sense of people and period to the general reader. And in this splendid tradition there comes Richard Rex's The Tudors, by an expert on the period who happens also to write fluent, engaging prose' (THE TABLET)
