London Welsh Centre


Book Launch and Talk:

As England’s most celebrated royal dynasty, it’s often overlooked that the Tudors have their origins in rural Wales, far from the urban centres of English power where they dared to become great. When Henry Tudor became king of England, defeating the infamous Richard III, he was regarded ‘an unknown Welshman’ to the people he now ruled.
In his native Wales, however, Henry had long been championed as the Son of Prophecy, a foretold national messiah who would free his oppressed people from their lengthy misery. It is even to him we owe the origins of our modern Welsh flag. In this special book-launch event, find out how the Tudors, these Welsh patriots and cousins of Owain Glyndwr no less, rose from Anglesey to take it all.

Nathen Amin is an author and historian from Carmarthenshire, West Wales, who focuses on the medieval period. He is an experienced public speaker who has spoken at some of the UK’s largest festivals and also on TV. In 2022, he was elected a fellow of the Royal Historical Society

Books will be available on the night for  £20 (RRP £25)
