Example text

The bare figures point to the decline of the nobility under Henry VII and corresponding rise in the importance of the crown and royal affinity that would be a defining feature of the early Tudor polity. Centre and Locality Some of the changes apparent in the government of the localities and the dynamic between locality and centre have already been touched upon.

However, historians have, in the main, accepted the view that there was nothing new about the means and methods of administration that the king employed. Henry’s ‘chamber system’ – in which the crown’s income was augmented and based primarily upon the revenues of the crown lands paid directly to the king’s chamber rather than the exchequer, the ancient body which handled national finance – was nothing more than a utilization of the system of estate management used by most magnates and introduced on a national level by Edward IV during the 1460s.
