King Henry VII and Elizabeth of York married in 1486, bringing together the two houses of Lancaster and York and helping to seal the end of The Wars of the Roses. Henry VII was the first King in the Tudor dynasty, and his marriage to Elizabeth brought together the symbols of the white rose of York and the red rose of Lancaster to form the Royal symbol for England, being the Tudor Rose. The couple were also the parents of Henry VIII, who would later become King of England, taking six wives in his lifetime.
