Does anyone know three clear reasons why Lambert Simnel was a threat to Henry VI? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific Study Help forum should help get responses.

I'm going to quote in Puddles the Monkey now so she can move your thread to the right place if it's needed. :yy:

Henry VII wasn't fully secure and since he'd only been on the throne for a short time he wasn't sure how many people would support Simnel.
Especially when Lincoln fled since that made Henry think that other senior noblemen may decide to support Simnel.

Simnel was the first pretender and was crowned by kildare in Ireland therefore he had a credible right to the throne.
The Battle Of Stoke - The rebels had the upper hand at one point when gaining widespread support - A defeat at this battle could have put Simnel on the throne.
Simnel was perceived as Edward V which could have threatened Henry as he would win support of loyal Yorkists. Henry was threatened by Yorkists and attempted to reduce the threat with his marriage to Elizabeth Of York and his Tudor Propaganda
