I don't think Cromwell will come up. Possibly Wolsey and the dissolution of the monasteries. How's your revision going?

I wasn't sure if maybe Wolsey's rise to power may come up, i.e. was it through luck or skill? There probably isn't enough material to make it a 40 mark question but it could possibly be a 20 mark one.

What material would you guys use in answering a question regarding was Wolsey successful or who has mroe power, Henry or Wolsey? (My teacher is awful )

There definitely is enough material for a 40 marker on this topic. There has been before, I done it - it was "Do you agree with the view that in the years 1515-25 Henry wholly surrendered power in government to Cardinal Wolsey?"

I am fortunate enough to have an excellent teacher - who achieves 100% A-C in A-Level history every year! I feel for you having a rubbish teacher for this topic must be horrible

I got 35/40 on this mock (plus my teacher is a harsh marker), and argued alter-rex historiography vs the idea that Henry was always the ultimate source of power.

My paragraph topics were:
1) Henry had other interests (Renaissance King, immaturity, sports) so unintentionally surrendered power particularly admin to Wolsey
2) Wolsey manipulated power and governed as King (bolstering power in Church, shining to Henry by being pragmatic)
3) Henry was always the ultimate source of power (examples of their falling outs, and Wolsey's apologies e.g. 1522 surprise attack and Henry asserting his power over Wolsey)
4) The nobility had greater power than Wolsey (low birth, Norfolk, close association with the King that the nobility had,,1521 execution of Buckingham)
5) Henry trusted Wolsey - so provided his power (Wolsey's wealth and lands, Hampton Court)

Overall conclusion - Wolsey had lots of power - mainly in admin however Henry was ultimately the main source of power

Hope this helped!

I don't do war of the roses - i do the 100 years war.

Hmm, to be honest I quite like finance and dislike foreign policy! Either would be okay. My teacher predicted either nobility/new men or the Warbeck/Simnel/Yorkist threat throughout reign; as both finance/government and foreign policy have came up for the last few years. I just don't want really unfocused questions!

Plus, I'm not as good as I thought with dates/names.. there are lots!

This exam is really hard to predict - but my teacher doesn't think it will be Cromwell for the 40 mark q. Hoping for Wolsey rise to power!

same my teacher has predicted that there may be a question on pretenders
if there is, we can link foreign policy with it
i dont want a question on finances, that would be my worst nightmare

i know how you feel, im only good with dates when it comes to foreign countries ege truces with france, HRE etc otherwise i dont remember any dates.

My biggest worry is timing! I get very carried away and I'm scared I'll forget something.
True. I think I find finance easy cos I argue it as:
Extended extraordinary finance to strengthen power (Royal lands, Feudal Dues, 135 Attainders)
Used ordinary finance to make more secure (tonnage and poundage, fifteenths and tenths etc controlling nobles)
Change in finances from 1485-1509 secured dynasty (£12000-40000 royal lands, £160,000 from French Pension, £7000 more tonnage and poundage - so rebuilt Sheen 1495, 300,000 on a plate of jewels - propaganda)
Opposition to finance (1489 Northern Rebellion, 1496 Cornish Rising)
Lack of control of nobles in Ireland (Gerald FitzGerald refused good behaior bonds)
So yes strengthened - some opposition...

Yeah I also do HVIII
