This study reassesses the policies of the founder of the Tudor dynasty and shows how Henry worked within existing traditions rather than breaking with the past. Every facet of the reign is considered including the nature of government - both at central and local level, financial policy, relations with the Church, foreign policy, economic affairs and concludes by assessing Henry as a 'new monarch'.

The English Parliaments of Henry VII 1485-1504

This is a study of the English parliament during the reign of Henry VII. It challenges a well-established interpretation: that the political importance of parliament was declining in this period as a result of royal hostility. Instead the study argues that the king valued parliament as an instrument of government. P.R. Cavill also examines the range of ways in which parliament engaged the king's subjects. It explores how parliamentary decisions affected everydaylife. Cavill further proposes that this period was important in the development of the English constitution because it laid some of the groundwork for the emerging principle of parliamentary sovereignty.

The Renaissance & Early Modern Era's start date, 1454, was selected because it immediately follows the end of the Hundred Years? War and the Fall of Constantinople. The following century was marked by the height of the Renaissance in Europe, the rise of the Ottomans and the Wars of the Roses in Britain. Also, European colonization expanded into Africa, Asia and the Americas, Japan became unified and the rise of both indigenous and colonial trade empires in Africa became important. The set discusses major changes in world economics and demographics.

Nach ihrem gefeierten Roman »Spiel der Königin« hat Elizabeth Fremantle einen neuen spannenden Roman über Intrigen und Bedrohung am Englischen Hof geschrieben. Wir schreiben das Jahr 1554: Edward VI. stirbt überraschend jung und bestimmt die sechzehnjährige Jane Grey zur Königin, er bestimmt die Änderung der Erbfolge, um Mary als Königin zu verhindern. Doch Janes Regentschaft dauert nicht einmal zwei Wochen, da hat Mary die unerfahrene Jane entmachtet und enthaupten lassen. Doch was geschieht mit Janes jüngeren Schwestern Katherine und Mary? Dass königliches Blut in ihren Adern fließt, wird ihnen zum Fluch, denn die kinderlose Queen Mary fühlt sich schon allein durch ihre Existenz bedroht. Elizabeth Fremantle lässt auch in ihrem zweiten Roman die wechselvolle Tudorzeit überraschend lebendig werden.

Geliebte Schwester. Erbitterte Rivalin. Der mächtige Herzog Richard Neville, Vater der jungen Schwestern Anne und Isabel, schäumt vor Wut. Denn all seinen Einflüsterungen zum Trotz hat der liebesblinde König Edward IV. weit unter seinem Stand geheiratet – die schöne Elizabeth Woodville, eine skandalöse Verbindung. Dabei verdankt Edward den Thron ihm allein, ihm, dem «Königsmacher». Heimlich vermählt Neville seine Töchter mit den nächsten Thronanwärtern, intrigiert, bläst zum Angriff auf das Königshaus – und scheitert. Wie Spielbälle katapultiert sein Machthunger die Schwestern als Thronanwärterinnen in die Höhe oder als Landesverräterinnen in den Abgrund. Mit aller Kraft versuchen Anne und Isabel, ihr Schicksal in die eigenen Hände zu nehmen und den größten Wunsch ihres Vaters zu erfüllen: die englische Krone für einen König aus dem Hause Neville. «‹Dornenschwestern› ist Philippa Gregory in Höchstform.» (Associated Press) «Gregory ist der Superstar des historischen Romans, und ‹Dornenschwestern› zeigt, warum: Diese Autorin bietet ihren Lesern intelligente Unterhaltung und eine Reise in eine bewegte Vergangenheit.» (Historical Novels Review) «Ihre vielen Fans werden die lebendigen Figuren, den üppigen und bewegenden Stil und die faszinierende Geschichte aus Frauenperspektive lieben.» (Library Journal) «Intrigen und Kampf bis zum Tod um Macht und Liebe.» (Los Angeles Times) «Großartige Unterhaltung.» (New York Daily News)
