Tudor Times Insights: Jasper Tudor, Brother & Uncle of Kings $6.00
Jasper Tudor, Earl of Pembroke and Duke of Bedford is one of the unsung heroes of the Lancastrian cause. The half-brother of Henry VI, he was treated generously by the king, and repaid this kindness with a life-long loyalty to Henry, his wife, Marguerite of Anjou and their son, Edward, Prince of Wales. When the Lancastrian cause seemed lost at Tewkesbury, Jasper escaped with his other nephew, Henry Tudor, into fourteen long years of exile. Undaunted, he and Henry Tudor planned an invasion into Yorkist England which resulted in the Tudor triumph at Bosworth. Little remembered now, Jasper's dedication was a primary factor in the victory.
Tudor Times Insights are short but comprehensive introductions to Tudor and Stewart personalities.
