Pembroke Castle Falls to Edward IV – September 30, 1461
Edward IV’s man Sir William Herbert besieged the Tudors at Pembroke Castle and they surrendered peacefully. Edward IV granted the wardship of 4-year-old Henry Tudor to Herbert and he was taken to Raglan Castle to be raised.
My journey into Tudor history began about 10 years ago with the TV show “The Tudors” from Showtime. As I watched the show, I wondered how much of it was really true because the storylines were more dramatic and shocking than any soap opera I had ever seen. I picked up Margaret George’s autobiography of Henry VIII and I was hooked. I’ve since read over 100 books on the Tudor period and I’m currently writing my own book about the Wars of the Roses.
