Establishing a dynasty: the end of Henry VII´s reign
You are lying on your deathbed. You know that you've bled your subjects dry with endless demands for taxation. You´re frightened that your subjects lack of affection for you may put at risk your one remaining son´s chance of succeeding peacefully to the throne. Looking back on your life you start to ask yourself, was I a good king? How successfully had Henry VII established the new dynasty? This podcast examines marriage agreements, wars with France, Prince Arthur and the king´s last days. Glyn's key concept is "Transition of Power".
