Early Life and Education
Henry was an astute ruler who excelled at forging profitable alliances between royal houses of Europe and England while simultaneously stabilising its finances and pushing reforms that enhanced England’s wool industry, all the while having strong political ambitions.
An oak four-post bed discovered at auction in Chester in 2010 is believed to have been made for Henry VII and Elizabeth of York’s wedding, who founded the Tudor dynasty. Art historical and advanced materials analysis suggest this date as their wedding.
The headboard depicts Adam and Eve with fertility symbols surrounding them that symbolize their desire for an heir. This find is notable since many royal Tudor furnishings were destroyed under Oliver Cromwell in the 17th century due to anti-royalist sentiment.

Achievement and Honors
The Henry Bed is one of the key artifacts associated with Henry VII, the monarch whose marriage of rival houses of York and Lancaster ended decades of conflict and established the Tudor dynasty. According to historian Jonathan Foyle, its carved panels symbolize Henry’s newfound prominence – featuring red and white roses representing Lancaster and York and fertility symbols representing York – as well as fertility signs reflecting his imperative need to produce male heirs quickly.

Henry was both an extraordinary soldier and politician. He secured profitable alliances with Europe’s other royal houses, orchestrated the marriage between Prince Arthur and Catherine of Aragon, and initiated construction of his navy; all creating an economic base that led to Britain’s “golden age” of colonial expansion.
No matter its modest beginnings, this bed is considered an exceptional find as one of the few secular examples of late medieval English royal woodwork that have survived to modern day. Furniture specialists, archival research and advanced material analysis suggests it dates to Henry VII and Elizabeth of York’s marriage in January 1486 – its headboard depicting Adam and Eve reincarnated into Christ signifies their hopes for an heir.
