This book by Bacon is one of the first modern classics of English history reveals the surprising man behind the crown.
Although written some hundred years after the death of Henry VII, Francis Bacon's analysis of the monarch's life is powerful, penetrating and insightful. Bacon examined Henry VII's motivations to create not only an important historical work, but also a key document in the development of political thought. The book is often regarded as one of the most important history writings by Bacon and is seen as an effort by Bacon who attempted to provide a framework of a more secular, Machiavellian tradition, which valued history for its lessons in pragmatism. The book by Bacon turns out to be mainly a history of the reign led by Henry VII.
