    My Tudors Coursework is based on the rebellions and how much of threat they possess. Can anyone give me any rebellions that happened during Tudor times that either possessed a great or little threat to the monarchy?

    You need to read your textbook. Yes its that basic.

    You dont say the exact title, but if its all Tudor rebellions then you need to do the research and understand what happened in each one, why and how it was resolved. A timeline wouldnt be bad. All the Tudor history books i ever read all have chapters on rebellions.

    This is basic research and it is 50% of writing the essay.

    Once you have a good knowledge then you have to assess the question and decide which ways you will write the essay.

    The unifying factors if its for all the Tudors need to be identified.

    Whose reign had more and why?
    What did they all want?
    Why did they happen?
    Which were the most successful?
    Why did they fail?
    How did Tudors resolve them? Common or different tactics?

    If you want to score well, then you need good research, good analysis and investigation, intelligent evaluation.

    It sounds as though you have done little research so far , so thats where you should start.

    Google, wiki, your textbooks and the library are your friends.

    If you want a high grade then you put the work in and master the material.

    For History then you also need to be able to analyse the issues and write an essay that presents depth and a powerful persuasive argument that you know what you are talking about.

    The rebellions are well known, just google them. It is your research an analysis that will make the difference. That is down to you.

    Thank you for the advice. I understand the basics of writing an essay and how to structure it, it's just finding reliable sources of information. My teachers are picky and haven't given any of us a textbook since it's not required. What were the books that you've read? And also, would you recommend Phillippa Gregory's books because I've got 2 (technically 4 since one of the books is a 3 in 1)?
