The Yale of Beaufort comes to Queen Elizabeth II through the mother of King Henry VII, Lady Margaret Beaufort. The sole heiress of John Beaufort, Duke of Somerset, Lady Margaret’s Yale heraldic beast followed her only son, Henry, to the throne of England when he defeated King Richard III of the House of York to end the Wars of the Roses. Henry’s victory paved the way for his crowning as King Henry VII, founder of the Tudor dynasty.
