Tudor Great Halls - The picture of Mrs. Thorne's “Tudor Great Hall” room box shows what one might look like half-way through the Tudor era. Great halls had undergone dramatic changes since Henry Tudor ascended to the throne as Henry VII kin 1485. It had been the most important room in a castle, but in the Tudor manor house, it would become obsolete.
