ABSTRACT
The article presents a historical information on the time when King Henry VII faced the first serious challenge to his rule in 1487. The rebellion's origins were a volatile mix of disaffection and dynastic ambition among a section of England's nobility and landed gentry. Some had lost land. Some, such as Lord Francis Lovell, were fugitives from the king, while others--notably John de la Pole, Earl of Lincoln--had one eye on Henry's crown.
