Nathen Amin - Son of Prophecy: The Rise of Henry Tudor (BMF Talk)

*A Bosworth Medieval Festival Ticket must be purchased to attend this event*

As England’s most celebrated royal dynasty, it’s often overlooked that the Tudors have their origins in rural Wales, far from the urban centres of English power where they dared to become great. When Henry Tudor won the English crown by defeating Richard III in battle, he was a stranger to the people he now ruled, an ‘unknown Welshman’ in the words of his defeated foe. In his native Wales, however, Henry had long been championed as the Son of Prophecy, a foretold national messiah who would free his oppressed people from their lengthy misery. How had this remarkable situation come about?

In this fascinating talk, bestselling author Nathen Amin discusses his latest publication Son of Prophecy: The Rise of Henry Tudor which deftly explores how one redoubtable Welsh family thrived during lean years of political chaos, national instability, and intergenerational bloodshed to leave behind a complex legacy that changed the face of England and Wales forever.

A book signing will be held after Nathen’s talk, so come and say hello! Copies of Nathen’s book will also be available for purchase.

Tickets are £8 per person and can be purchased HERE
