Henry VII of England

Henry VII (28 January 1457 – 21 April 1509) was King of England and Lord of Ireland from 22 August 1485 until his death, and the first monarch of the House of Tudor.

After obtaining the throne by force in 1485, Henry VII immediately attracted the attention of the Templars, who had plans to take over the English throne. They attempted to overthrow Henry, but the King had the conspirators Lambert Simnel imprisoned and Perkin Warbeck - who were, unknown to the King, members of the Templar Order - hanged.[1][2]

In 1503, the Assassins offered to kill the last remaining Templar conspirator, Margaret of York, for King Henry, and he accepted their offer. They succeeded and found out that the Templars had infiltrated the Star Chamber, England's secret court in the Palace of Westminster. Eventually, the Italian Assassin apprentices sent by Ezio Auditore da Firenze found out which members of the Chamber worked for the Templars and reported their identities to the king. Grateful for their services, Henry kept one seat open for the Assassin Brotherhood.[1][2]

However, Henry VII's relationship with the Assassins was not passed on to the next generations. Henry VII's granddaughter Mary I was eventually assassinated by the Assassins, and her half-sister Elizabeth I succeeded her, who ruled with the help of an Apple of Eden.[3]
