Key Stage 5 | Subject: History | Topics: Tudors | Session Type: Depth study
Does change always impede stability? Hampton Court palace saw use by three mid-Tudor kings and queens over a decade, all with very different aims and agendas.
In this session students will evaluate the stability of the monarchy as both religion and the nature of court itself shifted with the changing religious priorities of Edward VI, Mary I and Elizabeth I.
Reading the building and contemporary sources, students will analyse elements of the apparent crises of the Mid-Tudor period through the uses of this key location during many significant challenges and victories for Tudor monarchs.
