Nathen Amin, author and founder of the Henry Tudor Society will be talking to us about his latest book The House of Beaufort, the bastard line that captured the crown.

This book will uncover the rise of the Beauforts from bastard stock of John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster, to respected companions of their cousin Henry V, celebrated victor of Agincourt.

The Beauforts fell with the House of Lancaster during the 1460s and 1470s, and their hopes and fortunes came to rest upon the shoulders of a teenage widow named Margaret and her young son, Henry.

From her would rise the House of Tudor, the most famous of all England’s royal houses and a dynasty who owed their crown to their forebears, the House of Beaufort.

From bastards to princes, the Beauforts are medieval England’s most intriguing family.”

Stallholders include the Battle of Barnet Project, Battlefields Trust, Barnet 1471 Battlefields Society and local traders.
