The importance of Henry VII is the subject of heated debate. Did his reign mark the start of a new era, or was its prevailing characteristic continunity with the past? The pamphlet:

· emphasizes the lasting political stability established during the reign

· demonstrates the difference between Henry's policies and those of the Yorkists

· shows how successors built on Henry's legacy

· argues that victory at Bosworth in 1485 can be seen as initiating a genunine 'Tudor revolution in government'.
