  1. Who was the most successful Tudor minarch.?

    I think the most successful was henry tudor because he was victorious after his win from king Richard III. Therfore, this started a new period called the tudors. Another person, that I think was really important was William stanley, who was the kings friend, that was king Richard at that time, then reason of this is because he helped henry win and start a new beggining.

    Another Tudor monarch that was successful was queen Elizabeth I. This is because she defeated the Spanish armarda also changed the English religion to protestant. She had the nick name of the golden age, which was really good because she reigned over England for 45 years as she had the power to change the laws and make Britain a more beautoful enviromrnt a bad reason that happened in Elizabeth’s reign is that she ended the Tudors and a new era was created.

    The next suceesful tudor monarch I think, that was successsful was King Henry VIII the reason for this is that he was really famous as he married six wifes for a male heir. From this six marriges he was very rich as the father and mother of Catherine of aragon gave him 100,000 crowns worth of plate gold as a wedding gift. Although he did finally get a male heir, who was little prince edward.

    The most successful I think was Mary I because she married prince phillip of Spain so there was peace between Spain and England. She had a nick name of bloody Mary as she killed hundreds of protestants because she was catholic and they we’re not. She was really nice as a child although ,when she was the quuen she was not no where near.

    The next Tudor monarch I think was sucessful was Edward as he was more nicer and young as his father died, when he was 9. He reigned till he was 15 though. He was young to get married so ,when he died the thronevwas sent to lady Jane grey. Instead of Mary.

    The least successful I think was lady Jane grey as she only wasnqueen for nine days this was because she was locked in the tower of london by Mary. As a queen, she should of defended herself but she did not have the power to. The reason that she was sent to the tower was because she was protestant and Mary didn’t get along with the protestants.

  2. I think qween Elizabeth I was the most successful Tudor monarch because she reighed for 45 years. Another reason why is that when the spanish Armada tried to attack britain her army sent battle ships to attack the Amarda.

  3. I think the most successful monarch was Elizabeth the Ist because she ruled the ‘Golden Age’ which lasted 45 years and She never married or had any children.
    I think she would be an really good queen because, she defended England from the Spanish Armada . However I think the least successful queen was Mary I because she burned at the stake during her reign.

    Elizabeth’s life was troubled from the moment she was born. Henry VIII had changed the course of his country’s history in order to marry Anne Boleyn, hoping that she would bear him the strong and healthy son that Catherine of Aragon never did. But, on September 7, 1533 in Greenwich Palace, Anne bore Elizabeth instead.
    Anne did eventually conceive a son, but he was stillborn. By that point, Henry had begun to grow tired of Anne and began to orchestrate her downfall. Most, if not all, historians agree that Henry’s charges of incest and adultery against Anne were false, but they were all he needed to sign her execution warrant. She was beheaded on the Tower Green on May 19, 1536, before Elizabeth was even three years old.
    Elizabeth was probably at the royal manor at Hunsdon when her mother was arrested and executed after being at court for Christmas (and likely the last time she saw her mother). Henry had remarried and was eagerly awaiting the son he hoped Jane Seymour was carrying. As it turned out, she was indeed to bear Henry a son, Edward (future Edward VI). Jane died shortly after her son was born.
    Elizabeth’s last stepmother was Katherine Parr, the sixth queen to Henry VIII. Katherine had hoped to marry Thomas Seymour (brother to the late Queen Jane), but she caught Henry’s eye. She brought both Elizabeth and her half-sister Mary back to court. When Henry died, she became the Dowager Queen and took her household from Court. Because of the young age of Edward VI, Edward Seymour (another brother of Jane’s and therefore the young King’s uncle) became Lord Protector of England.Elizabeth was probably at the royal manor at Hunsdon when her mother was arrested and executed after being at court for Christmas (and likely the last time she saw her mother).

    Elizabeth went to live with the Queen Dowager Katherine, but left her household after an incident with the Lord Admiral, Thomas Seymour, who was now Katherine’s husband. Just what occurred between Elizabeth and Thomas will never be known for sure, but rumors at the time suggested that Katherine had caught them kissing or perhaps even in bed together. Katherine was pregnant at the time of the incident. She later gave birth to a daughter named Mary. Katherine died not too long afterwards and was buried at Sudeley Castle. This left Thomas Seymour as an eligible bachelor once again.The story, possibly apocryphal, of Elizabeth’s entry into the Tower is an interesting one. She was deathly (pun intended) afraid of the Tower, probably thinking of her mother’s fate in that place, and when she was told she would be entering through Traitor’s Gate, she refused to move. She had been secreted to the Tower in the dark so as not to raise the sympathy of supporters. That night was cold and rainy, and the Princess Elizabeth sat, soaking wet, on the stairs from the river to the gate. After her governess finally persuaded Elizabeth to enter, she did so and became yet another famous prisoner of the Tower of London.

    I think she is the most successful queen because she reigned for so long

  8. I think queen Elizabeth the 1 was successful Because she successfully defended England from the Spanish Armada and was a huge turning point in the turmoil with Catholic Spain.Elizabeth was the daughter of King Henry VIII. She was born in 1533. Her grandfather Henry VII was the first Tudor king of England.

    Elizabeth’s life was troubled from the moments she was born,Henry vIII had

  10. Elizabeth reineged for 45 years from 1558 to 1603 and she deafeted.She Elizabeth was one of the best queens and she reinghed so long that they called it the golden age.She was King Henry daughter and King Henry had killed her mother and she killed Mary but that was a great thing because she killed lots of people.

  11. I think King Henry VII was successful because. He married Elizibeth of York and stopped the fight between the two rival families.He United the two roses together.He is the most successful too reign he had 7children 4survived there names are Athur Henry Margret Mary.He remind for 30years.He lived in Lancaster .

  12. The most successful monarch was Elizibeth I because she reigned the longest.she became Queen at 1558 and died at 1603.A Good thing she was one of England’s most treasured monarch as she ruled the Golden age which lasted for 45 years.Her mother was called Anne Bolyin and Farther was King Henry VIII.

  13. The two most successful Tudor Monarch were;

    Henry VIII
    Henry VIII became king of England when his father Henry VII
    died in 1509. He is perhaps one of the most influential members
    of English monarchy in history and Henry VIII died in 1547 he
    rained 58 years.
    Elizabeth I
    Elizabeth came to the throne in 1558 after the death of her
    half-sister Mary I. Her mother was Anne Boleyn. She is one
    of England s most treasured monarchs as she ruled the
    Golden Age which lasted 45 years. She never married or
    had any children as she devoted her time to her country.

  14. The most successful Tudor monarch was Edward the sixth because he wanted to unsure that the Protestant legacy continued.I also think Elizabeth the first was successful because she deafeted the Spanish Armada on the other hand her half sister Mary the first was pretty lazy and did not achieve anything in her life.The least successful monarch was King Henry vIII because all he did was kill his wives.

  15. I think the the most successful monarch was queen Elizabeth 1 because she fought of the Spanish Armada .And she ruled Ireland and England and when she ruled it was called the golden age and she was the last Tudor monarch.

  16. King Henry VII was the most successful monarch seeing as he fought King Richard in the battle of Bosworth. King Henry VII became King in 1485 and created the Tudor rose and he also married Elizabeth of York and had seven children that were Arthur,Henry,Margret and Mary. On the other hand,Mary became Queen on 1553.

  17. I thought Henry VII was a very successful monarch because he United the two houses and brought peace to the nation which made the Tudors also successesful.
    The bad thing about him is that he stole the throne.He is also successful because he turned the Tudors from stupid to brilliant.

    I thought the least successful Tudor monarch was Mary I because she killed lots of people and that means people didn’t like her and wanted to end her reign.

  18. HENRY VIII

    Henry became King in 1509 when his father, Henry VII, died.he is perhaps the most influential members of the English monarchy in history.henry married 6times and had three children who would go on to become Edward VI, Mary I and Elizabeth I.He could speak English,Latin and Italian.As he got older he got fatter and unhealthy.

  19. Facts about Elizabeth the first
    I think Elizabeth the first is the most successful Tudor monch because she reign for 45 years. One thing that she’s not Faumos for,is having a bath once a month. I think She is successful beacuse She didn’t kill people for no reason and she had a reason to kill people. marry the first killed people for know reason she tied people to wood and set them on fire alive her nick name is Bloody Mary

  20. I think queen Elizabeth the 1 was successful because She successfully defended England from the Spanish Armada and was a huge turning point in the turmoil with Catholic Spain.Elizabeth I ruled England alone. She did not marry. So although she was queen, England had no king. This was unusual at the time.

  21. Henry VII

    Henry Was the first of the Tudor monarchs. He was made King after his victory over Richard III at battle of Bosworth,dubbed the war of roses. The war had ragged between the lancater that’s why Henry VII was successful.

  22. Henry VII was the most sucsessful because he defeated Richard the III, as a result the Tudor reign became however the worse queen was Mary I

  23. Due to my reasearch Henry the VII was the most successful monarch because he was the one who fought Richard the III himself with small army .On the other hand Bloody Mary I was the least successful because she killed 300 protestant Supporters and she killed 30 in a tower .

  24. Henry Tudor, named after his father, Henry VII, was born by Elizabeth of York June 28, 1491 in Greenwich Palace. Since he was the second son, and not expected to become king, we know little of his childhood until the death of his older brother Arthur, Prince of Wales. We know that Henry attended the wedding celebrations of Arthur and his bride, Catherine of Aragon, in November 1501 when he was 10 years old.

    Shortly after the wedding, Arthur and Catherine went to live in Wales, as was tradition for the heir to the throne. But, four months after the marriage began, it ended, with Arthur’s death.

    A treaty was signed that would allow Catherine to marry the next heir to the throne — Prince Henry. Until then, Catherine’s parents, Ferdinand and Isabella of Spain would send over 100,000 crowns worth of plate and gold as a wedding gift and Henry would pay the agreed upon dowry.

    It was deemed necessary for a papal dispensation to be issued allowing Henry to marry Catherine, as she was his dead brother’s wife, and this marriage was prohibited in Leviticus. At the time, and throughout her life, Catherine denied that her marriage to Arthur had even been consummated (and given the boy’s health, that is most likely the case) so no dispensation was needed. However, both the parties in Spain and England wanted to be sure of the legitimacy of the marriage, so permission from the pope was sought and received. This issue would be very important during the Divorce and the Break with Rome.

    The marriage still did not take place however. Henry VII had been slow to pay his part of the arrangement and her parents were refusing to send the marriage portion of plate and gold. The stalemate continued until Henry VII died on April 22, 1509 and his son became Henry VIII.

    Henry was just shy of 18 years old when he became king, and had been preparing for it from the time of his older brother Arthur’s death. At this age, he was not the image that we usually call to mind when we hear the name Henry VIII. He was not the overweight and ill man of his later years. In his youth, he was handsome and athletic. He was tall and had a bright red-gold cap of hair and beard, a far cry from the fat, balding and unhealthy man that is often remembered

    Henry’s marital career is probably the thing that he is most known for. The story of Henry’s wives is told on their own pages.
