Best Answer

Henry VII wasn't a particularly bad king. He made merry, put on a good sow, and led his troops into battle as any good king should. However, especially in his later life, Henry VII put himself above all others. He wasted English money on lavish weddings and gifts for his wives, and risked war in the diplomatic displacement/ beheading of each of them. He didnt terrorize his country or anything, but he was a bit greedy.

He had a bad political system, absolute power, acted like a kid, and no training whatsoever. As Lord Acton said, "Absolute power corrupts absolutely"
