By Stephen Alford

This booklet is a reconstruction of the kingship and politics of the 3rd Tudor king of britain, Edward VI (born 1537), who reigned among 1547 (from the age of 9) until eventually his loss of life in 1553. The reign has usually been interpreted as a interval of political instability, commonly due to the king's age. This booklet explores how the reign was once remarkably solid; and likewise how, throughout the reign of Elizabeth I (1558-1603) the Edwardian thought of what it was once to be a monarch--and a few of the similar males who had served Edward VI as councillors and courtiers--dominated Tudor politics.
