Any recommendations? I can only buy 1.
Also, I study Tudor government and Rebellions as part of my A-Levels. Most importantly, I want a book that is entertaining whilst being insightful. I am open to reading about rebellions or even just reading about each monarch.

Would you be averse to reading fictional books concerning the Tudor era? If not, I would suggest reading Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel, along with the subsequent sequel, Bring Up the Bodies. Both books are part of a planned trilogy which chronicles the rise to power of Thomas Cromwell, with the third and final book—The Mirror and the Light—being expected to be released in 2019.

"She-Wolves: The Women who Ruled England before Elizabeth" by Helen Castor.
"In medieval England, man was the ruler of woman, and the King was the ruler of all. How, then, could royal power lie in female hands?
In She-Wolves, celebrated historian, Helen Castor, tells the dramatic and fascinating stories of four exceptional women who, while never reigning queens, held great power: Matilda, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Isabella of France and Margaret of Anjou. These were women who paved the way for Jane Grey, Mary Tudor and Elizabeth I - the Tudor queens who finally confronted what it meant to be a female monarch."
