The Tudors were a Welsh-English family that ruled England and Wales from 1485 to 1603, starting with the first monarch King Henry VII. The Tudors ruled for 118 years and Tudor England saw 2 of the strongest monarchs ever to sit on the English throne: King Henry VIII and his daughter Queen Elizabeth I.

The Tudor dynasty story encompasses some of the most dramatic and unforgettable events in European history. And they remain the most famous and controversial of royal families.

The Theory of Divine Right, was practiced under the Tudor dynasty. The theory of divine right, absolute monarchy entails creation of a single, established church practicing a single ceremonial and teaching a single religious belief system. If this is true, then the Roman Pope has the strongest claim to that position. All Protestants, in varying degrees, take issue with the above. They all challenged the position of the Pope and the role of papal authority within the Church.

In 1603, Queen Elizabeth I, died, the last of the Tudor monarchs. Elizabeth Tudor is considered by many to be the greatest monarch in English history.

When Henry VII died in 1509, this popular 18 year-old prince, known for his love of hunting and dancing, became King Henry VIII. Soon after he obtained the papal dispensation required to allow him to marry his brother's widow, Catherine of Aragon

Well thought of, in 1521, Pope Leo X conferred the title of “Defender of the Faith” on Henry which affirmed the supremacy of the Pope in the face of the reforming ideals of the German theologian, Martin Luther. Henry VIII was also known as the 'father of the Royal Navy.' When he became king there were 5 royal warships. By the time of his death he had built up a navy of around 50 ships.

The thing that defined Henry more than anything else was his quest to produce a male who would inherit the throne of England, especially the lengths he would go to too accomplish that. When his wife Anne could not provide a male heir, he sought an annulment which the pope denied. When Henry XIII was excommunicated he established the Church of England with him self as the head.

Without intending to, he opened the door for radical reform of the existing Catholic Church. Which also help give rise to the protestant reformation.

Queen Elizabeth I is considered by many to be the greatest monarch in English history. When she became queen in 1558, she was 25 years old, a survivor of scandal and danger, and considered illegitimate by most Europeans. She held the throne for 44 years, keeping England in the ascendant through wars, and political and religious turmoil.

Elizabeth inherited a bankrupt nation, torn by religious discord, a weakened pawn between the great powers of France and Spain. She was only the 3rd queen to rule England in her own right; Even her supporters believed her position dangerous and uncertain. Her only hope, they counseled, was to marry quickly and lean upon her husband for support. But Elizabeth had other ideas.

Elizabeth I, grew up in complex and sometimes difficult circumstances. The daughter of King Henry VIII and his 2nd wife, Anne Boleyn, she was only 2 years old when she lost her mother.
Anne Boleyn was beheaded on the orders of her husband, based on questionable charges of adultery and conspiracy. Elizabeth and her older half-sister Mary were declared to be illegitimate as her father sought to pave the way for a male heir. They fought for the crown for several years.

Mary died and in 1558, Elizabeth took control of her country, inheriting a number of problems.
The country was at war with France, draining the royal coffers. There was also great tension between different religious factions after Mary worked to restore England to Roman Catholicism. She earned the nickname “Bloody Mary” for ordering the execution of 300 Protestants as heretics.

When Queen Elizabeth died, she has largely been remembered as being a queen who supported her people. Her lengthy time on the throne provided her subjects with stability and consistency, and her sharp wits and clever mind helped navigate the nation through religious and political challenges.
