Though one of the least remembered Tudor kings, it was, in fact, King Henry VII that founded the Tudor dynasty. After defeating King Richard III, Henry took to the throne in 1485 and began a 24-year reign that would steer England back to a much-needed state of peace and stability. Henry's claim to the throne was quite thin, however. His reign is characterised by his smart, thought-out political moves to secure the Tudor dynasty, including his marriage to Elizabeth of York. After the death of his first son, it was his second son, the infamous Henry VIII, that took to the throne after the king's death in 1509.
