Nathen Amin grew up in the heart of Carmarthenshire, West Wales, and has long had an interest in Welsh history, the Wars of the Roses and the early Tudor period. His first book Tudor Wales was released in 2014 and was well-received, followed by a second book called York Pubs in 2016. His third book, the first full-length biography of the Beaufort family, the House of Beaufort, was released in 2017 and became an Amazon #1 Bestseller for Wars of the Roses. He is currently working on his fourth book, Pretenders to the Tudor Crown, for release in 2019.

Nathen is also the founder of the Henry Tudor Society and has featured discussing the Tudors on BBC radio and television, as well as in print and online media across the UK. He has a degree in Business and Journalism and now lives in York, where he works as a Technical Writer.


Nathen has given several talks on the subject of the Tudors and York Pubs, including speaking in front of the Richard III Foundation Annual Conference, at the Bosworth Battlefield Anniversary Reenactment Event and for various Local History Societies. He is available for talks on subjects including Henry VII, Sir Rhys ap Thomas and York Pubs, and you can enquire through the Contact Me section.

Nathen Amin has written three, professionally-published books;

  • Tudor Wales (Amberley Publishing, 2014)
  • York Pubs (Amberley Publishing, 2016)
  • House of Beaufort (Amberley Publishing, 2017)



“Certainly, this book seems to have been thoroughly researched, the evidence carefully assessed, and the conclusions cautiously reached. He’s managed to pull together the threads of a complex story and present it in an understandable and, I must say, a thoroughly entertaining way.”

“Nathen Amin has drawn on a countless amount of resources in order to produce such an interesting level of detail…If you are new to the subject, this is the number one place to begin. The author has written a book without bias, simply presenting facts written to be entertaining, instead of heavy and academic”

“Beautifully written and very well researched”

“This is a book every history buff needs to read if they are interested in finding out about the roots of one of the most infamous dynasties in world history, who will continue to fascinate us in decades to come. I absolutely loved how descriptive how Nathen Amin was. From start to finish, I was hooked.”

“For those looking for a meticulous and detailed account of the lives and times of each of the Beaufort family members, this book provides exactly that.”

“Nathen Amin’s passion for the Beauforts comes across in every page. His persuasive, perceptive arguments are all supported with ample evidence and explanation. Comprehensive and compelling, this is a book that should grace the shelves of any fan of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, of the royal Houses of Lancaster and York, and the Hundred Years War, or even for a simple lover of medieval history”
