He belonged to the House of Lancaster, which was fighting the House of York, for control ofthe country. Henrys mother Margaret was a descendant of King Edward III, which gave Henry a claim to the throne. Margaretgave her son to the care of his uncle, Jasper Tudor. When Henry was aged 14, Edward IV won power for the House of York in theBattle of Tewkesbury. Many Lancastrians died as a result of the battle. Jasper ran away with Henry to France.Claim to the English Throne: Edward IV died in 1483, and his brother Richard stole the throne making himself Richard III. Henrywas now the leading Lancastrian claim to the English crown, and saw his support grow.
