With a great deal of help from Welsh soldiers at Bosworth Field, Henry beat Richard lll to become King of England.
The Welsh gentry liked him because he looked after them and made them even richer. The bards referred to him as the ‘Son of Prophecy’ because they thought a Welsh king of England would surely be good for Wales. As for the rest, the majority of the welsh people, life was tough and the king did very little to help them.
