Henry VII (1457-1509) claimed the throne and started the Tudor dynasty, after his death Henry VIII(1509-1547) claimed the throne, during his leadership he secured the borders of the England and England Parliament enacted laws breaking ties with Rome and declared King Supreme Head of the Church. After his death, his son Edvard VI claimed the throne but he was too young to rule so his mother Jane ruled for him (1547-1553). Henry VIII daughter Mary seized the crown, she was known as the Bloody Mary because she wanted Vatican church back in England, and she terrorised all to accomplish that.
