This hasn't come up since january 2012 "Why was the Lancastrian monarchy unable to withstand the challenges it faced from the Yorkists in the years 1455-61" and june 2011 "To what extent were Henry VI and Margearet of Anjou responsible for Lancastrian failures in the years 155-61"
Questions about the cause of the outbreak of fighting in 1455 have been very popular in recent years, but if it does come up again I think they might focus on Margaret of Anjou's role as this is in the specification but has not been used yet. Other focuses which haven't been used for a number of years are the impact of defeats in France and the ambitions of Richard, Duke of York
Richard III was in last years paper but there has not been a question fully focused on his reign since jan2012 so this seems like another possibility
However having said this examiners are very unpredictable and anything really could come up! I'm just so glad we have a choice of two questions
Henry VI - most likely unrest in period 1450-61
Richard III - there isn't that much they can ask on him but I reckon why he lost his throne
Henry VII - unlikely to be foreign policy came up in both 2013 papers, most likely Yorkist threat/rebellions
that's what I/ my school think anyway.
