Sample text

T. Bindoff considered that the principal problem facing Henry in 1485 was ‘how to suppress the magnates’ and J. R. 8 Although the nobility continued to enjoy a role both in the government of the localities and at court there nevertheless remains the feeling amongst historians that Henry was somehow less inclined to see the nobility as his natural partners in government than were his Lancastrian and Yorkist predecessors. In reality the situation was less clear-cut. What Henry was concerned with primarily was the augmentation of the crown’s authority and the security of the Tudor dynasty on the English throne.

The nobility as a whole had largely remained aloof from the events of 1470–1, when Edward IV had been deposed by his erstwhile ally, the Earl of Warwick, and the Lancastrian Henry VI briefly restored to the throne, and had also acquiesced in Richard III’s usurpation in 1483. At Bosworth only five of the fifty-five nobles summoned to parliament in 1484 turned out for Richard III, while Henry was accompanied on the battlefield by only one peer, that die-hard Lancastrian loyalist the earl of Oxford.

The hereditary claim to the throne was also apparent in Henry’s first parliament, summoned to meet at Westminster on 7 November 1485. In parliament the new king addressed the Commons and proclaimed his right to the throne, not only by divine right as revealed by his victory at Bosworth but also by hereditary title. An act of attainder was passed against King Richard and his closest followers which, crucially, dated Henry’s accession to 21 August, the day before Bosworth. This, in theory, could have important ramifications for landowners who supported their king in battle, risking forfeiture if their then lord was defeated in battle; and was thus a controversial and potentially unpopular move.
