22 Aug 1485 Ambion Hill: Battle of Bosworth

At which the future Henry VII King England and Ireland defeated his cousin Richard III King England. Usually described as the last battle of the Wars of the Roses some argue the Battle of Stoke Field two years later brought the Wars of the Roses to a close.

Henry's Lancastrian descent somewhat tenuous being the son of Margaret Beaufort 1st Countess Richmond, 1st Countess Derby who was descended from the legitimated children of John of Gaunt 1st Duke Lancaster. Although legitmated the Beauforts were excluded from the succession so arguably Henry had no right to the throne. Might rather than right prevailed. There were no legitimate Lancastrian descendants left.

18 Jan 1486 Westminster Abbey: Marriage of Henry VII and Elizabeth York

Henry VII had promised to marry Elizabeth of York Queen Consort England in Dec 1483 after the failed Buckingham rebellion. Having achieved victory Henry had himself crowned in Oct 1485. He didn't want his tenure of the throne of England to require Elizabeth as his wife.

It is interesting to note that Elizabeth's coronation occurred in 1487 once she had given birth to the boy Arthur. Henry VII was hedging his bets somewhat.
