    Hi, I'm trying to do a practise question for Tudors and I'm stuck on the introduction.
    The question is:
    ‘The consolidation of royal authority, in the year after Bosworth, was due to Henry VII’s control over the nobility.’ Explain why you agree or disagree with this view.

    so far I've got this but I've got no idea where I'm going with this...
    Henry VII gained the throne in 1485 after the battle of Bosworth. As a Usurper he had a weak claim to the throne through his mother, Margaret Beaufort, and won the throne through battle which made him insecure whilst on the throne. He faced many problems after the Battle of Bosworth and had to consolidate his royal authority. He had to deal with problems such as his security, prestige, increasing the funds of the Crown and Dynasty. And so it was not completely down to Henry’s control over the nobility which secured his royal authority.
    Can I have some help please? x
