The Tudor dynasty or House of Tudor
was a European royal house of Welsh
origin that ruled the Kingdom of
England and its realms, including the
Lordship of Ireland, later the
Kingdom of Ireland. Its first monarch
was Henry VII.
The Tudors extended their power beyond modern England,
achieving the full union of England and the Principality of Wales
in 1542 and successfully asserting English authority over the
Kingdom of Ireland. They also maintained the traditional claims
to the Kingdom of France, but none of them tried to make

to reclaim that title. After him, his daughter Mary I lost the claim
on France forever with the Fall of Calais.
