Henry Tudor was victorious at Bosworth on the 22nd of August One of the most important issues to deal with was Titulus Regius, the act passed by Richard III that declared the marriage of Elizabeth Woodville and Edward IV as illegal and their children illegitimate. By now, the couple, who had probably never met before, were getting to know each other in the relative privacy of Coldharbour.
Elizabeth of York
Henry was also busy acquiring the necessary Papal dispensations, for the couple were related by blood in the double fourth degree of consanguinity 3. Three dispensations would be issued in total.
The first dispensation had been issued sometime before March ofwhen Elizabeth Woodville and Margaret Beaufort had first arranged the marriage in rebellion against King Richard III.
Henry went about applying for a second dispensation after he took the throne, which arrived on the 16th of January The couple were married a mere two days after the dispensation arrived, which makes it obvious the dispensation was the main cause of delay. The third and final dispensation would not arrive until March 2nd, by which time the couple were wedded and bedded and Elizabeth pregnant.
Henry was determined to make the marriage indisputable, and the third dispensation removed the impediment of a possible fourth degree of affinity, relation through marriage 4. Henry would take no such chances. So is a five-month gap really such a long period of time?

Henry had rather a lot to do after he defeated King Richard III, he hardly had time to rest on his laurels. Peace had to be established, he had to be crowned and hold his first parliament, restore his wife to her rightful position and take the time to get to know her while they were waiting for the Papal dispensation to arrive.
Fictional representations of Margaret show an unhealthy and obsessive love for her son in which she rivals her daughter-in-law for his affections. The most recent depiction of Margaret on television is maniacal, fanatical and outrageously sexist, for how better to denigrate a female than showing her as a hysterical woman constantly on the verge of tears, when not of course being devious and underhanded?
Henry and Margaret certainly were close. Margaret would never give birth to another child and was parted from Henry for most of his young life. Their affection for each other when they were finally reunited is plain in the surviving records of gifts and letters.
Henry honoured his mother, she was the greatest landowner in the kingdom only after the King and Queen, declaring her femme sole, which gave her complete control over her own wealth. Cecily even revised her coat of arms to include the royal arms of England, hinting that her husband, Richard Duke of York, had been a rightful king and that she was effectively Queen Dowager.

Both were afforded semi-regal status by their sons. Many observations have been made of Margaret Beaufort appearing in similar attire to her daughter-in-law the Queen, taking precedence just a step behind her. Cecily is depicted in royal robes, placed immediately behind the queen.
Margaret had been negotiating with Edward IV to bring Henry out of exile for years and was Edward was perhaps considering marrying Henry to one of his daughters to reign him in, he was after all the Lancastrian heir and still a threat.
A draft of pardon undated from Edward IV to Henry Tudor is written on the back of the patent of creation of Edmund Tudor as Earl of Richmond on 23 November suggest he may have been considering granting him his former title again.
During the course of their marriage, Elizabeth would give birth to eight children - four of whom would live. Arthur, Margaret, Henry, and Mary would be those lucky four and would all make impressive marriages - though Arthur would not live long enough to take over the impressive dynasty that his parents had created.
There are virtually no details that I can easily find about the wedding ceremony between these two important figures, but from what I've read, the ceremony was happy and grand - as would be expected of a brand new monarch and his bride. There are many more details about these two after their wedding - with their children and their seemingly perfect marriage. Of course, in this time period, no marriage was perfect, but this one seems to be a pretty good model for future Tudor marriages.
Henry VII & Elizabeth of York: A Faithful Love
It has been reported that Henry deeply loved his mother, whom he referred to as one of the kindest, most beautiful women he'd ever known. All throughout his life, he would make mention of his beloved mother and sometimes be moved to tears over his sadness of her passing.
Perhaps, in Henry's mind, his mother was the ideal bride, and that it why he was never content in his own marriages! Elizabeth died in after catching the nasty childbed fever infection from giving birth to a sickly daughter who died soon after, Katherine.
Rumours began to spread that they had been murdered, and these appear to have been increasingly widely credited, even though some undoubtedly emanated from overseas. Although Henry Tudor was descended from King Edward III his claim to the throne was weak, owing to an act of parliament passed during the reign of Richard II in the s, that barred accession to the throne to any heirs of the legitimised offspring of Henry's great-great grandparents, John of Gaunt and Katherine Swynford.
Whether such an unprecedented act had force of law is, however, disputed. Whatever the merits of Henry's claim, his mother and Elizabeth Woodville agreed he should move to claim the throne and, once he had taken it, marry Elizabeth of York to unite the two rival houses.
In Decemberin the cathedral of RennesHenry Tudor swore an oath promising to marry her and began planning an invasion. InElizabeth of York and her sisters left Westminster Abbey and returned to court when Elizabeth Woodville was apparently reconciled with Richard III, which may — or may not — suggest that Elizabeth Woodville believed Richard III to be innocent of any possible role in the murder of her two sons although this is unlikely owing to her involvement in Henry Tudor's failed invasion of October Richard III, despite having the larger army, was betrayed by one of his most powerful retainers, William Stanleyand died in battle.
She holds the white rose of the House of York. As the eldest daughter of Edward IV with no surviving brothers, Elizabeth of York had a strong claim to the throne in her own right, but she did not assume the throne as queen regnant.

Such a precedent would not truly come to England for another 67 years, when her granddaughter, Mary Iacceded to the throne. Though initially slow to keep his promise  Henry VII acknowledged the necessity of marrying Elizabeth of York to ensure the stability of his rule and weaken the claims of other surviving members of the House of Yorkbut he ruled in his own right and claimed the throne by right of conquest and not by his marriage to the heir of the House of York.
He had no intention of sharing power. Their first son, Arthurwas born on 20 September Elizabeth of York was crowned queen on 25 November Following her coronation, she gave birth to seven more children, but only four survived infancy: Arthur, MargaretHenry and Mary.
