England under the Tudors - Arthur D. Innes. But the writers who (like the late Bishop Stubbs or Professor Samuel Gardiner) undertake to tell over again the history of a long period, with the aid of all the newly discovered material, are few indeed.

A comprehensive look at the history of England during the rule of the Tudor monarchs (1485-1603). A comprehensive look at the history of England during the rule of the Tudor monarchs (1485-1603).

The Tudor dynasty or House of Tudor was a series of five monarchs who ruled England and Ireland from 1485 until 1603. Three of them, (Henry VII, Henry VIII and Elizabeth I) played important roles in transforming England from a comparatively weak European backwater into a powerful state that in the coming centuries would dominate much of the world.

There is a wealth of information here. The three monarchs, Henry VII, Henry VIII, and Elizabeth I, who were the Tudor dynasty, were all powerful personalities who wielded their political power to fascinating results. Each was markedly different from the others in approach and attitude, yet all three served to transform England into the dominant world power she became. This book presents their stories in careful detail, at the same time paying close attention to the world in which they functioned. Other figures get excellent coverage as they come into the narrative and leave again, from Cardinal Wolsey to Thomas Cromwell to Ann Boleyn to Sir Walter Raleigh, to Phillip of Spain, William the Silent, and the other religious figures and foreign rulers of the times. For anyone interested in 16th Century European history, English history, ro the Tudors themselves, this is a must read. You will find details here that strengthen our understanding of these fascinating people.

I would recommend Mr. Innes' work, England under the Tudors. It is filled with a dense tapestry of the European monarchs and influencers of the mid to late 16th century, how they were related, and how they relentlessly and usually mercilessly maneuvered these relationships for their personal benefit. Mr. Innes paints these interconnections as the UK and Europe entered their final throes of rule by individuals and oligarchies laying the foundation for a more enlightened rule of law.

My reasons for not giving the book 4 stars are its somewhat convoluted style at times, which is sometimes demanding to follow but characteristic of other histories written at the turn of the 20th century, and identifying people with a frequent interchangeable use of their names, multiple and changing titles, and regions ruled. Those of us who were not raised on the complex family tree of UK and European Who's Who may find this difficult at times with such a large cast of characters. Those familiar with European and UK history will find this a smaller obstacle.

All in all this is a very informative, scholarly review of a politically, socially, and religiously tumultuous and critically formative time in the UK and Europe. It also provides a good foundation to better understand why Great Britain behaved the way it did vis-à-vis the 13 colonies.

This is like the history text books we had in the 1950's, which it may have been.
Pure unadorned text. No concessions to short attention spans here.
I read it on my Ipad however and was able to switch to Wikipedia for analysis, pictures and maps as the mood took me. Wonderful stuff.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and can heartily recommend it.
You don't have to take my word for it either. Google the author's name and read a review written when it was first published, 1938.
History makes history.
Also it's free!

I am not unknowledgeable about the Tudors taken individually. The author, however, puts them together in a manner that makes each of them more understandable. I greatly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.

One aside: The formatiing makes it somewhat difficult to read, but not extraodinarily so.

England Under the Tudors is a very good historic account of the rule of England by Henry VII and VIII, Mary, and Elizabeth. Fills in lots of details and is very thorough. It is at times a bit one-sided and judgmental but is overall a valuable overview of the Tudor Dynasty.

Unirtay
Coming in at 7,278 locations, the author has summed up England under the Tudors, Henry VII, Henry VIII, Edward, Mary and Elizabeth I. That's a lot of history for one book, so it's a good general history, but you will definitely want a more specialized book for the extra details. The author also liked Mary Stuart and Mary Tudor, so it's not too shocking that his opinion of Elizabeth isn't very high, but he does correctly note that Elizabeth did put the English on the path of greatness.

It's a very good pickup for free for the Kindle. I suspect the version has been updated since some of the other reviews, as the formatting is fine.

Not a "light" read given it was written mid-19th-Century. As a history buff, however, I did learn a great number of things I had been exposed to before regarding the reigns of the monarchs of the Tudor Dynasty.

This was a good presentation of Tudor history. It is a bit dry and reads like a text book but it has a lot of interesting facts and good information.
