The Tudor Succession and Richard III Q&A

Students asked me some questions about the Tudor Succession

  • Why did Henry VIII prefer his sister Mary’s children to Margaret?
  • I have heard in a previous course about how Sir Thomas More wrote a life of Richard III that threw him under the bus. Was he writing this just to please the Tudor monarchs or was there some satire in it?
  • Do you think Richard III was as big a villain as history makes him out to be?
