Son of Edmund Tudor, Earl of Richmond, and Margaret Beaufort, direct descendant of John of Gaunt; during the supremacy of the house of York (1471-85), lived as an exile, chiefly in Brittany; encouraged by unrest under Richard III, invaded England; defeated and killed Richard III at Bosworth Field (22 Aug 1485); immediately acknowledged as king. Married (1486) Elizabeth, eldest daughter of Edward IV, thus uniting the houses of Lancaster and York and ending the 30 years of political turmoil known as the War of the Roses. Suppressed a Cornish insurrection (1497). Instituted the Star Chamber, by which means he was able to restrict the power of the nobles, greatly increasing the power of the crown. He accumulated a vast fortune.  -30-
