The men denounced by Perkin Warbeck (who claimed he was Richard, duke of York, Edward IV’s younger son) in 1497 as evil counsellors and ‘caitliffs and villains of low birth’ – Bishop Fox, the keeper of the privy seal, Sir Reginald Bray, Sir Thomas Lovell, Sir John Risley, Oliver King, Henry’s secretary, Sir Richard Empson, Sir Richard Guildford and Sir John Turberville – represented a mix of high officers of state, household servants and companions in exile, demonstrating that the principal determinant of who counselled Henry lay with the king himself.
Several historians have attributed this change of policy to the king’s sense of dynastic insecurity, apparent from 1502 with the death of his eldest son, Prince Arthur, and, in the following year, of his queen. 15 More important than Henry’s domestic disaster in the apparent change of direction in royal policy around the turn of the century may be the king’s failing health. It is clear, from the so-called ‘Flamank Information’ (a report of an alleged conversation in September 1504 between the officers of the Calais garrison concerning the succession), that the king had been close to death in 1499 and during the next few years he suffered from bouts of recurrent incapacity.
5 Although local stresses did occur, Henry brought strong kingship and through that exorcised many of the ghosts of the fifteenth century. On the other hand, Christine Carpenter has argued that Henry fundamentally misunderstood the nature of late medieval political society and the need to govern with and through the land-owning elite. 6 Thus recent historiography has tended to play down the novel aspects of Henry Tudor’s accession. Nevertheless, it did mark the beginning of a new dynasty that would rule England for over a century.
