Henry Tudor was born at Pembroke Castle in Wales in 1457, the son of the already deceased Edmund Tudor (Henry VI's half-brother via Catherine of Valois, widow of Henry V) and his 13 year old widow, Margaret Beaufort.
Henry Tudor's claim to the throne existed through his mother, who was descended illegitimately from John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster. However, even this extremely tenuous connection to the House of Lancaster was, in the absence of more credible and still living Lancastrian royals, enough to persuade the young Henry to flee to France, where he might have expected to remain for the rest of his life.
Following Henry's victory at Bosworth, Henry Tudor (now Henry VII) married Elizabeth of York, the heir to the Yorkist cause, so that the two rival houses might at last be united and the Wars of the Roses finally brought to an end. The marriage produced four daughters and four sons, one of whom would succeed him as Henry VIII. Henry VII was known for his careful policy of spending as little possible (many would call it miserliness) and avoided expensive foreign wars. He would die in 1509 as one of the richest princes in Europe.
The obverse features the Jody Clark portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The legend reads:
ELIZABETH II · D · G · REG · F · D · 100 POUNDS · 2022 ·
The reverse of this coin was transposed from Alexander of Bruchsal's original designs. It features a crowned King Henry VII facing right.
