In Tudor-era historiography, narratives concerning the period beginning
with Richard II's deposition (1399) and ending with Richard III's defeat
(1485) offer an origin myth for the Tudor dynasty, and present Henry VII's
accession as the beginning of a glorious future to which all history has
been leading. But this gesture of cohesion -- a united nation on the verge
of greatness -- paradoxically also fragments the national narrative
precisely by presenting the accession of Henry VII as a decisive break with
the past, the end of the Middle Ages.
