Chiefly remembered for his role in ending the Wars of the Roses, Henry VII remains a rather mysterious figure. This biography—one of the first modern classics of English history—reveals the often surprising man behind the crown.
Although written some hundred years after the death of Henry VII, Francis Bacon's analysis of the monarch's life is both penetrating and insightful. Rather than simply cataloging the facts of his reign, Bacon examines Henry VII's motivations to create not only an important historical work, but also a key document in the development of political thought. The result is essential reading for anyone interested in British history, politics, or literature. Statesman, scientist, philosopher, and essayist, Francis Bacon (1561–1626) is one of the leading figures in Elizabethan and Jacobean history.
