    Does anyone know any key ideas to put for the following question:

    'richard II lost his throne because of his pro-french sentiments, whereas Henry IV maintained his government mainly because of his hostility towards france.'
    how far do you agree with this statement?

    This is a question from Edexcel A2 History Paper 3 (Lancastrians, Yorkists nad Henry VII, 1399-1509)

    The unifying idea is French sentiment or hostility.

    Just read your textbook and treat it as two mini topics

    1. What are the reasons Richard lost the throne?
    2. Out of those where does being pro French come? How did being pro French manifest itself? What were the implications? Did it undermine or cause events that acted against him?

    Introduction French sentiment and hostility. You are being asked how far and how much relations with another country affected them. You can mention they adopted opposite stances and that you will examine each in turn.

    So for that half of the essay you can do a recap of Richard losing the throne, then the reasons for it. You then do a mini paragraph on Pro French sentiment and whether that contributed and acted against him? When? How and to what effect? What were the pros and cons of being pro French?

    The second half of the essay you do the same for Henry. If he managed to stay on the throne why? What impact did hostility to the French have ? Find it hinder or assist and how was it useful?

    You can then do another paragraph on respective relations with the French and how being pro or anti can be used to affect your reign as a monarch. Inspire nationalism, win wars, get territory, costs money or makes you look weak.

    The final bit is to return to the question and answer it.
    Q1 In the case of how far it caused Richard to lose,was it major, actual or do you disagree?
    Q2In the case of Henry how far did the hostility help him and what was the impact? maybe there were other more important reasons why he kept in power? Do you agree with the question.

    That would be the essay. Just read your textbook and fill in the blanks.
