Henry VII , first Tudor King

So, I was wondering how the House of Tudor began as an English Royal House.  From what I’ve read, the Battle of Bosworth Field (1485) was one of the last significant battles in the War of the Roses, and English civil war opposing the Yorkists and the Lancastrians.

Decisive Lancastrian victory, according to Wikipedia. Henry Tudor (who had Welsh blood) became Henry VII.
