3 Few English kings can have been as ill-prepared for kingship as Henry Tudor. He had, he told the French chronicler Commynes, been on the run since the age of five; he had had none of the training in English government, justice and war that had, for instance, been Henry V’s kingly apprenticeship. What he did have, however, was a hard upbringing in the realities of fifteenth-century diplomacy and politics. He had studied the kingship of the French kings at first hand. His models were, therefore, continental: one commentator would later observe that he ‘would like to govern in the French fashion’.

Councillors met in the Star Chamber at Westminster or ‘learned counsel’ (the contemporary term for lawyers) deliberated over legal matters but they were not committees as we, or indeed later sixteenthcentury governments, would understand them. Henry VII’s council was large and amorphous: 227 men were styled king’s councillors during the reign, including twothirds of the nobility, although the council usually met as a working party of about two dozen. We can identify four levels on which counsel operated during Henry’s reign.

They lived lives of obedience bounded by poverty and lack of potency. Their lords by comparison lived lives of plenty but were often haunted by the spectre of rebellion. Sixteenth-century England experienced endemic violence and disorder. All men of wealth, fearing unrest and upheaval from below, saw a clear mutual interest with the king in controlling the peasantry. 4 Participation in central government also offered lucrative rewards. 5 These fortunes may not have been characteristic, but clearly in the minds of the aristocracy crown service wedded to landed wealth represented the pathway to preferment in the early Tudor world.
