Item description for Henry VII by Charles Williams...

Henry VII is less spectacular than his descendants, but not less interesting or even exciting. The first of the Tudors has been less written about than any (except Edward VI). He supplanted a dynasty and subordinated an aristocracy; he collected a treasure and created a fleet. But he created also the engine of monarchy. He did this because his desires were never at odds with his intentions: he possessed an equilibrium greater than any other Tudor-even Elizabeth. That fixed equilibrium of his mind released a very high industry and decision. In his later life his methods a little overcame him; his suspicion, his caution, his acquisitiveness escaped control. It was then that by certain general measures and especially by one little particular act he prepared the way for the destruction of that engine of monarchy he had created. The reign of Henry VII was the seed of the future, but it was already worm-eaten. Charles Williams was one of the finest-not to mention one of the most unusual-theologians of the twentieth century. His mysticism is palpable-the unseen world interpenetrates ours at every point, and spiritual exchange occurs all the time, unseen and largely unlooked for. His novels are legend, and as a member of the Inklings, he contributed to the mythopoetic revival in contemporary culture.

Reviews - What do customers think about Henry VII?

His Initial Majesty  Jun 3, 2008
Henry VII, that relatively unknown king who is dwarfed in popular history by his descendents, through the nature of his court invented the concept of "majesty". This relatively compact volume may not be as rich in historical detail as the tomes written latterly, but it fully captures the essence of this man, the first Tudor king. Written in 1937, this work brings to my mind and was probably influenced by the historical biographical work of Lytton Strachey. From exiled obscurity to success on the battlefield to building England's place in Europe, Henry is a contained customer.

Statecraft was his metier, as he formed key alliances through the marriages of his children, playing a close hand on the European stage. His interesting relationship with the Spanish ambassador De Puebla is well displayed and examined, as well as the problematical issue of Catherine of Aragon.

This work does perhaps posit that the reader has something of a grasp of early Tudor history, but that should not put anyone off. It is a very well done character painting of a complex and infinitely interesting and often overlooked king.
