Remarks: Jasper was an adventurer whose military expertise, some of it gained in the early stages of the Wars of the Roses, was considerable. He also brought up his nephew, Henry Tudor, whose father had died before his birth, took the teenage Henry with him into exile in Brittany. It was thanks to him that Henry VII acquired the tactical awareness that made it possible to defeat the far more experienced Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth Field.
